The Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo P desktop computer is a great all around machine for all types of user. It is now available in most high street stores and can be picked up for around the average high street price.


The design of this computer is great. It is a mini stand up grey tower with a darker grey face at the front. It measures 20cm X 43.5cm X 37.3cm The system looks sleek and modern with neon lights shining from the bottom and around the power button just off the bottom.
It is also quite deep with the space to install extra drives and storage mediums, which would be great for the possibility of a future upgrade.


Almost all of the Scaleo P range provide the user with an Intel P4 processor with integrated HT technology creating faster speeds when trying to multitask.


The Scaleo P comes with 512mb of DDR Ram, which allows the PC to run smoother when using the larger programs and games. Again, there is room inside the machine for added memory.


The hard drive installed is a standard Fujitsu 5200 rpm 80gb hard drive. This will be adequate for most games, programs and other media however it may not be so smooth when running the larger games. There is also room for an extra hard drive.

Graphics and Sound card

The graphics card is a standard 128mb graphics card. The computer is pre-installed with an up to date Intel Graphics Controller.
Sound card is also a standard integrated sound card with support for dolby surround sound.
Both cards are easily accssible in case of future upgrading.

Optical Storage

The Scaleo P comes with a standard DVD rewritable drive with space just below for another drive.


The monitor is a 17" Fujitsu Siemens TFT monitor. With the screen resolutions that are available both old and new games will display perfectly.

Windows OS

The operating system installed is Windows XP home service pack 2. This the newest home operating system from Windows and has many new added features including new security features like firewall.


Another important factor. I found one for £640 in the high street and so I believe you will be able to find one cheaper online if you search around.

Tech Support

The technical support group from Fujitsu Siemens are I would say only average. The phone hotline can take a long time to you to be answered and I have had one experience where I found them to be quite rude and abrupt.
However if you use the online technicalsupport yourquerywill be answered quickly and they will try and assist you in almost any problem.

Overall I find this to be a great system. It has the specification needed to run nearly all programs and games and with further space for upgrades you will be able to meet all future requirements for a reasonable amount of time. The price I paid for this product is probably an average deal, however if you were to find this cheaper then you may well be picking up a great deal.
