Quick review of Fujitsu Siemens ESPRIMO Mobile V5505
"I had this computer for like 2 months, and i think it had some problems, because it kept on crashing, and i didn't even go online or anything with it, I called the company but they kept making me go through a bunch of troubleshooting tasks, that did not resolve the problem, so i had to send it back and get a refund for it. I use a G4 Mac now, and it's running pretty good
