The Fujitsu LifeBook T4310 is one impressive convertible tablet. It delivers a sharp design, an excellent touch screen, and a complete feature set at a low price. It incorporates a modular bay that can accommodate an optical drive—a component missing from many tablets—or even a second battery or a removable hard drive. The LifeBook T4310 artfully delivers a 12-inch convertible tablet/laptop with enough power, features, and flexibility for both business and consumer use.

While everyone else is getting their knickers in a twist about a tablet that Apple might be launching later this year, here’s one manufacturer that actually has launched one — Fujitsu.
Before you get too excited, we should point out that the Fujitsu Lifebook T4310 is a Tablet PC of the old school rather than a sleek, slimline web browsing device, which means it’s effectively a traditional laptop with a screen that folds back on itself when you want to scribble on the screen. If you need a laptop first and a tablet second, then the Fujitsu Lifebook T4310 isn’t a bad choice, but it’s just too bulky to use the other way around.

84% Review Fujitsu Lifebook T900 Tablet/Convertible | Notebookcheck
A Multifunctional Convertible? According to Fujitsu, the Lifebook T900 should be an "extremely versatile, lightweight convertible notebook for professional users". Whether the 13.3 inch model with Arrandale hardware can meet the requirements of such a device, you will find out in the following review.

The Fujitsu LifeBook T900 is a tablet laptop with a 13.3-inch multi-touch display, aimed squarely at business users. The Fujitsu LifeBook T900 is a well-equipped machine with a fast processor and an excellent touchscreen. Unfortunately, it's big, heavy and awkward to use as a portable tablet. In addition, the battery life just isn't sufficient for this style of machine.

85% Review Fujitsu LifeBook T580 Convertible | Notebookcheck
Versatility in Person? Convertibles aim to fuse every advantage of a notebook with that of a pure tablet computer in order to achieve an optimum workflow according to the application field. Fujitsu equips its current Lifebook T580 with cutting edge technology and has to prove its potential in the following review.
60% Fujitsu LifeBook T580 Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
For users seeking a feature-packed ultraportable convertible with pen input, the LifeBook T580 is a pretty good option. However, the short battery life makes this $1,399 configuration difficult to recommend. Fujitsu should have included the larger battery at this price. For $300 less, the Gigabyte T1125N performs better and lasts longer on a charge, though it doesn't feature a pen. If you do decide to splurge on this laptop-tablet combo, be sure to get the larger six-cell battery. Or, if you don't need Core i5 power, get the $999 configuration of the T580 with a Core i3 processor and six-cell battery.

So my advice is that unless you're looking for a Tablet PC for a specific use - say, if you're a company that requires the workforce to input a lot of information on the go - you're better off looking around elsewhere.

Performance is limited by the low-power CPU and integrated graphics, but the convertible netbook works well for the usual productivity tasks and some online streaming video watching. The integrated Intel graphics definitely rule out any 3D gaming, but a netbook shouldn't really be used for that anyway. The SSD hard drive does speed up the system a little bit and you also get better battery life. Expect to get about 5-6 hours of battery life with this computer.

The biggest down side, though, is the price. The base configuration, which includes 32-bit Windows 7, a fairly slow CPU, 4GB of RAM, and the 320GB hard drive, is nearly £1000. That's a really steep price for adding a touch interface. In the end, this is a pretty intriguing system, but it needs to be slimmed down - both in bulk and in cost - to compete in a world of netbooks and iPads.

Fujitsu - Lifebook T580 review

While having some merits, the Fujitsu Lifebook T580 falls between stools. It's too heavy to be truly portable, but still a little small for practical work-based use - and somewhat lacking in features for most home users.

The Lifebook T580 is a highly portable laptop and its ability to convert into a tablet is neat. However, the lack of dedicated touch software and some minor limitations hold it back.

If you can't decide whether you should get a new laptop or opt for a tablet instead, maybe the Fujitsu LifeBook T580 could be the answer. 10.1-inch Fujitsu LifeBook T580 is a decent ultra-portable laptop, but it's less successful when you twist the screen and put it into tablet mode, due to its small screen and chunky dimensions.

The Lifebook T580 brings the convertible tablet down to a netbook form factor, but its default screen resolution makes it tricky to use the touch screen reliably, and the device is a little heavy for prolonged use holding in one hand. However, for users needing tablet and laptop functionality, the T580 offers these in a more portable format than most current convertible designs.

Two in One. The Fujitsu Lifebook T901 is the fusion of a classic notebook with a trendy tablet PC. The 13.3 inch model has a lot of power on-board thanks to the Intel Core i7 2620M, the fast SSD storage device and a UMTS module. However, all this great hardware comes at a price: the convertible costs around 2000 Euros. Is this an investment worth making?

So now that you know what the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK T901 is more than it looks, don’t let silly things like its S$3,988 price-tag stop you from getting a piece of future proof hardware that lets you take notes everywhere you go. If you need to use the tablet to take notes on the fly, we recommend picking up the SSD option.

A real head-turner. Fujitsu puts a new convertible on the market that woos deep-pocketed business customers with a ULV Core i7, QHD touchscreen, security features and LTE support. How does the rotating joint concept do compared to other business devices? Can its connectivity options and ergonomics stand up to the demands of professionals? Our review tells it all.

For business users looking for a (quite literally) flexible convertible , the T904 is a smartly designed convertible Ultrabook that's solidly constructed, possesses a fine display and more than enough power to crunch through day-to-day tasks. It sports a hefty price tag, but for enterprises users who would benefit from the 2-in-1 form factor and would take advantage its extensive communication features - there's a lot to like.

Comment

Fujitsu: Fujitsu, founded 1935, is a Japanese company specializing in semiconductors, air conditioners, computers (supercomputers, personal computers, servers), telecommunications, and services, and is headquartered in Tokyo. Fujitsu employs around 160,000 people and has 500 subsidiary companies. The partnership with Siemens AG was established in 1999 in the form of Fujitsu Siemens Computers, one of Europe's largest IT hardware suppliers, and owned 50/50 by Fujitsu and Siemens. 2009, this cooperation was terminated. In future, no laptops will be sold with the brand "Fujitsu-Siemens" but only "Fujitsu".


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

T6600: Entry level Core 2 Duo dual core processor with a small 2MB level 2 cache and without virtualization functions.

Intel Core i5:

520M:

The Core i5-520M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.4-2.93 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

560UM:

The Core i5-560UM is a power efficient ultra low voltage processor for laptops. Using Turbo Boost it can be clocked with up to 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 166-500 MHz) and a DDR3-800 memory controller are also included in the package.

3320M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 Graphics, core clock 2.6 - 3.3 GHz

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

2620M: Very fast Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

4600U:

A Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 2.1 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.


10.1: The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions.

12.1: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

13.3: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.48 kg:

This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.38 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


73.08%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
