Reviews for the Fujitsu Lifebook T4310
Source: Computer Shopper
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.

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.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
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.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
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".
