The Modular Approach: FIC MB05 Centrino Notebook

3D Performance: 3D Mark2001

Margin of error aside, all three laptops deliver the same 3D performance. This result is not surprising, since they all have the same Intel chipset graphics core for processing 3D data.

Battery Life


The FIC MB05 has all the features retailers as well as what users expect from a modern, portable PC. Our test results show that a Pentium M clocked at a "mere" 1.4 GHz is more than sufficient to run all common programs fast. A four-hour battery life with the WLAN module deactivated ranks among the heavyweights. The same goes for the notebook's actual weight, which at nearly three kilos is a lot to lug around frequently.
