Reviews for the Fujitsu-Siemens LifeBook P1610

75% Fujitsu-Siemens LifeBook P1610
Source: Bios Magazine English
Computers powered by the Windows XP Tablet PC Edition operating system, and equipped with a sensitive screen designed to interact with a complementary pen, are called Tablet PCs. Tablet PCs are fully-functional laptop PCs, but with the added benefit of being able to use a stylus/pen directly on the screen just as you would a mouse to do things like select, drag, and open files; or in place of a keyboard to handwrite notes and communication. Unlike a touch screen, the Tablet PC screen only receives information from this special pen. It will not take information from your finger or your shirt sleeve - so you can rest your wrist on the screen and write naturally. Your business doesn’t live in an office - it goes wherever you go. And with the LifeBook P1610 you have simple ways to connect, communicate, network, and get it done - whether you’re in the office or on the road.

While the P1610 isn't going to win any performance awards, it's up to the job of everyday tasks. What it lacks in power it easily compensates for in portability. The keyboard is a little on the small side, but other than that it's a very usable machine. The tiny size comes at a premium, but when judged against other similar systems it's reasonably priced. It's a machine you really could take with you everywhere and still be able to get something done once you arrive.

60% A truly portable tablet PC, but one that's dogged by poor battery life
Source: vnunet.com English
With Windows Vista now housing full tablet functionality, Microsoft must be hoping for a boost in sales of the much maligned tablet PC. Pros: Very light; small chassis; good features; Cons: Poor battery life; low-spec components; expensive; Overall: It will appeal to those after a portable tablet PC, but battery life is poor and you pay a hefty premium for its small dimensions

70% Can Fujitsu Siemens make the Tablet PC useful?
Source: Pocket Lint English
Tablet PC has never really caught the imagination of the average computer user. It’s great for business, where the interactive screen can be shared by a couple of people for writing notes. The Fujitsu Siemens P1610 is great to use and its light weight means you aren’t tied down to carrying a brick around with you. However, its battery life really lets the useability side down. It may be great to use in meetings but we’d recommend using at a secondary machine and not as your sole notebook.

This ultra ultraportable features a swiveling, tablet-style screen.
Source: PC World English
The Fujitsu LifeBook P1610 is a well-designed, extremely compact, and flexible notebook. Anyone who roams around a lot during the workday and needs continual access to a computer is an ideal candidate--particularly if price isn't a big concern. If you frequently spend some of your work day outside (for legitimate reasons--or not), you'd probably find this little computer invaluable, too. Otherwise, a full-featured ultraportable, such as Fujitsu's LifeBook P7120 or Sony's Vaio TX series, is probably a better bet.

LifeBook P1610 Tablet PC (1.20GHz Core Solo U1400, 1GB, 80GB, Windows XP Pro, 8.9)

This attractive ultraportable model packs a lot of functionality--including a swiveling touch screen--into a tight space. Pick up the svelte Fujitsu LifeBook P1610, and you'll barely feel as if you're carrying a notebook PC. And no wonder: At 2.2 pounds, the $2419 (as of 12/18/06) P1610 puts the "ultra" in ultraportable. The P1610 is similar in weight and size to its predecessor, the LifeBook P1510. (It's slightly slimmer at 1.4 inches deep, and it measures 9.1 by 6.6 inches.) Included, however, are several notable improvements, among them a reasonably roomy 80GB hard drive, and a PC Card slot in lieu of the P1510's integrated CompactFlash slot.

57% Fujitsu LifeBook P1610 (Core Solo 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM, 80GB HDD)
Source: CNet English
The Fujitsu LifeBook P1610 combines the best features of ultramobile PCs (tiny size, easy-to-use touch screen) and convertible tablets (an attached keyboard, laptop-caliber performance). As with most hybrid technologies, however, the LifeBook P1610 forces you to make some compromises: its tiny keyboard makes extensive typing a challenge, and--though we'd like to carry the P1610 with us all day long--its battery life isn't enough to last through a full day of work.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

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


Intel Core Solo: Single core version of the Core Duo and successor of the Intel Pentium M; Because of the 65nm reduced structure width also smaller current consumption than Pentium M (maximally 27 Watts); the performance is comparable with the equivalent clocked Pentium M (somewhat faster because of a few improvements).


U1400: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


8.9": This is a very small format, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny 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 very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Fujitsu-Siemens: 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 (FSC), one of Europe's largest IT hardware suppliers, and owned 50/50 by Fujitsu and Siemens. 2009, this cooperation was terminated, FSC ended to exist. In future, no laptops will be sold with the brand "Fujitsu-Siemens" but only "Fujitsu".
