Info Sync World features a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo M4438 Review and writes:

Naturally, the Amilo M4438 revolves around its 17-inch CrystalView display which, with its 16:10 aspect ratio and razor-sharp WUXGA resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, is a member of an exclusive elite which can take HDTV 1080 content and display it in all its glory. Furthermore, a Nvidia GeForce Go 6800 graphics chipset backed by 256 MB of VRAM delivers enough raw, unadulterated power to render the M4438 a highly interesting option for gamers – unless we’re talking first person shooters, in which case the 25 ms response time will counter the otherwise-excellent performance.

Fujitsu Amilo M4438 receives 85% on this review for the high-quality visual performance, the superb storage options and well-rounded feature set. The conclusion of this nice review:

“Fujitsu Siemens Amilo M4438 is nothing if not powerful – and good looking, to boot. A diverse mix of features combine to offer excellent performance, yet some odd choices cramp its style: speedy processors are hampered by limited memory; scorching graphics performance is limited by a display with a poor response time; and despite particularly impressive Wi-Fi reception, Bluetooth is not included. Despite its drawbacks, however, the M4438 makes for an impressive all-rounder which should serve everyone but hardcore first-person shooter gamers well – and it’s not too pricey, either.”
