Fujitsu H710 laptop review

I’ve recently replaced my faithful “old” work-laptop, the HP 2540p – with a new Fujitsu Celsius H710 workstation-grade laptop. It’s pretty nice spec’ed, with the new Sandy Bridge i5-2540M 2,60Ghz, 8GB DDR3-ram, 1GB Nvidia Quadro 1000M and a 160GB Intel 320 series SSD. The monitor is 1920×1080 Full HD which was my primary reason to upgrade from the 12” 2540p(1280×800). Doing a lot of remoting daily it’s a little easier when you have the complete remote screen available. Also doing some virtual machines, the more RAM and the quad-core will be nice. Doing the default benchmark in x64 Windows 7, result in this:

Wouldn’t imagine that a 1GB graphics card would pull the number down Smile should remember to say that the memory test was done with 4GB and the SSD disk controller is in Compatible mode and not AHCI(sorry, my bad)

On the design point, Fujitsu still has a looooong way to go. The laptop feels 2000’ish in design, the dock is a piece of plastic with ports on it… But the technology is not missing a thing and to my knowledge the pricing also makes Fujitsu attractive.

Small note for migrations from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010

When migrating users from Exchange 2003, they apparently have no language settings set on their mailbox. This can be a problem because among others NDR messages are created with a default language, which is not always the correct if you have multiple languages in your organization. To set the language you should use the following powershell command: Set-Mailbox –Identity “Username” –Languages da-DK (Culture code for all languages can be found here:http://sharpertutorials.com/list-of-culture-codes/) I had the need in my case to apply this based on Organizational Units in AD – but not all users in the OUs have been migrated, so I needed a parameter to only select the Exchange 2010 mailboxes – to do this I used the following command:
get-mailbox –OrganizationalUnit “domain.local/OU-name/Userfolder” –RecipientTypeDetails “UserMailbox” | Set-Mailbox –Languages da-DK

The RecipientTypeDetails “Usermailbox” parameter guarantees me that it is only Exchange 2010 migrated users.

Additional mailboxes in Outlook 2010 with Exchange 2010

Did you notice that in Outlook 2010, if you have Exchange 2010 and "Full Access" to a users mailbox, it will automatically be added to your mailbox view? I was wondering a bit about this and how to remove these folders, because they were not in my usual mailbox overview, and I had done some testing with the mailboxes but afterwards wanted to get them out of my Outlook 2010…but they were not in the “Additional mailboxes” under E-mail settings:

That made it a bit difficult to remove the mailboxes in my view, until I remembered that I might not have removed the Full Access rights for my own user to these mailboxes. After doing this and restarting Outlook, the mailboxes were automatically removed from my view.

Cool feature…
