As far as budget laptops go you shouldn’t expect to get too much for your money. However, for less than £300 you can pick up the Fujitsu Siemens Amilio Li 2727 which offers a good level of functionality and decent specification for a laptop of this price. It uses a reasonable Core Duo processor with a reasonable amount of hard drive space although the onboard graphics means you won’t be able to run the latest or most graphics intensive games.
The processor is a 1.73GHz Core 2 Duo processor which is one of the better choices at this kind of budget. The 120GB of hard drive is also respectable for laptops that cost a little more so it shouldn’t be frowned at. It does, however, offer an unimpressive 1GB of RAM and the onboard graphics will enable you to do most things except play games.
The monitor is a 15.4” widescreen monitor and like many of the features helps to make the Fujtisu Siemens Amilio Li 2727 a decent buy for the money, especially if you want it for school, work, or as a basic multimedia unit. The graphics capabilities don’t inspire but it does only attract a £300 price tag.
