This is the first in the N series line to be available with an Intel Core 2 Duo 2. I remember reading about this happening to some Asus notebooks with the X, and it being fixed with a BIOS update, maybe this is the same case with the N Also, this type of case allows for very efficient cooling and sound deadening, as this model is very cool to the touch and very quiet as well.

The only time I have even heard the fan running is when they are on at full speed and running benchmarks, etc.
The included software with this model has always been quite good, without being over the top. After being able to see and use what I think are some of the best screens available on any notebook computer, I was very excited to see what Fujitsu has done with their latest model. All are right below the main panel and above the keyboard, so it is easy to see.

This new model has the same venting layout as the N which is much improved over my N that only had one rear vent and one fan.
The silver and black color scheme works very well, not too much, not too little. This is an area I feel Fujitsu has always been successful with, especially in regards to the N Series. At a hefty 9.
