The anti-glare 15.4″ LCD Monitor supports a native resolution
of 1280×800, and I find the image quality very good, as compared to some of
the entry-level Notebooks I’ve seen.

1 Fujitsu LifeBook C1410 Notebook Review

The Fujitsu LifeBook C1410 came with an Intel Core Duo T2300
onboard, which runs at 1.66GHz during application runs and speedsteps down to
1GHz when system is idle to save battery life. Intel Core Duo is a very popular
Mobile processor with 2 cores onboard for great multi-tasking performance.

Above you see the CPUZ Readout. I was disappointed to find
the Notebook actually running just one DIMM of DDR2 667MHz Memory, offering
512MB total system Memory. Not just the fact that 512MB is a little low to couple
with a Dual-Core Notebook where multi-tasking should shine (only to have the
limited physical System Memory slow it down), but also the fact that this cripples
Memory Bandwidth without making use of the extra performance offered by Dual
Channel.

Yes, at 2.8kg, this Notebook is not exactly a petite girl’s
dream. Be prepared for a heavier bag as you bring this around. And a bigger
bag too, with the 360mm wide Notebook.
