    How good is it? Build quality, screens, heating etc.
    I am especially interested in Xi 1526 model, so if anyone has comment?
    Thanks..

    They are very good, but thats my opinion. I don't think build quality is an issue with large notebooks like these. Fujitsu Siemens build quality generally is very good though. Some of the plastic is, well, a bit plasticy, but otherwise it is built very well.

    The screen is very good. It displays everything with amazing sharpness and clarity, and is also bright. There is a bit of heat on the right side of the notebook, just the upper right of the trackpad. This is where the graphics card resides, so it will be a bit warm. Although, it has never got to the point, where it is uncomfortably hot. SInce you are interested in the Xi 1526, the Go 7600 in that shouldn't get as hot as the Mobility X1800.

    On the whole, I'm very pleased with the notebook. Some people on other forums have complained against random shut downs, but that was because of a dodgy BIOS, and has now been fixed, I believe. See if you can go to a store and see the notebook in person. You will certainly have a much better idea of whether you like it or not. I hope this is useful to you.

    Fujitsu Siemens makes high quality, well built notebooks, in general. The Xi 1526 is no exception.

    Are you reviewing one Charlie? I would really like to read that review.

    You won't be making a mistake if you buy one. They are very good notebooks: Very powerful and there quite thin as well, when compared with some other 17" notebooks on the market.
