The Fujitsu LifeBook E8410 is also light and has pretty good battery life. For improved performance, invest in 2GB of RAM instead of our test unit's 1GB.

Fujitsu lays out its usual smorgasbord of security options for safeguarding your data. A SmartCard reader and a security button panel that you can program with a number combination are standard with the Fujitsu LifeBook E8410; a built-in biometric fingerprint reader costs a little more.

This notebook lets you use two batteries at once, thanks to a modular optical drive bay with side release. Pop out the Fujitsu LifeBook E8410's DVD burner and hot-swap in a second battery. Or insert the included hollow filler module to trim the notebook's weight to a very comfortable 2.6kg.

The nice design extends to the Fujitsu LifeBook E8410's big, readable 15.4in screen, its comfortable keyboard, and its small but easy-to-use touchpad. The notebook's look is business-dressy, with a black lid and bottom and an off-white keyboard. Our only gripes involve the lack of USB ports on the right side of the notebook and tinny sound of the speakers.

Our review unit equipped with a 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo T7500 processor would have earned a better WorldBench 6 Beta 2 speed score than 72 if it had carried another gigabyte of RAM. The laptop turned in average performance for a recently tested desktop replacement anyway. It's battery life was top-notch.

    You can use the Fujitsu LifeBook A6030's touchpad as a pointer and as a small writing pad. It won't replace a full-size tablet screen, but it's great for occasionally storing quick handwritten notes or drawings.
