Reviews for the Fujitsu-Siemens LifeBook T4215

80% Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook T4215 UMTS Tablet PC
Source: Hexus English
The Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook T4215 UMTS has solid credentials. It's based on Intel's Napa platform (with Atheros WiFi card, though), ensuring a decent compromise between power, heat and battery life. We especially like the dual-swivel Tablet TFT, which is eminently readable in practically any environment.
More good is to be found with the range of connectivity options, covering Bluetooth, WiFi and Gigabit LAN through to an embedded UMTS card, offering truly go-anywhere connectivity.
But we'd want the laptop to be fitted with at least 1GiB of RAM and a more spacious hard drive. We'd also like an ExpressCard slot as standard. Furthermore, with portability near the top of the usual features-list for Tablet notebooks, a sleeker, lighter chassis would have been nice - something around 1.6kg with battery and optical drive.

Fujitsu t4215 Review
Source: OurNotebookReviews English
Recently got a t4215 from Fujitsu online store. This baby was shipped straight from Japan. I wanted a small portable laptop that resembled my old p5020D fujitsu. I wanted something small, fast, and with bay options. T415 is similar to the P series ….like the current p7120, but also features penabled tablet screen.

Early convertible tablets often were saddled with out-of-date components. But newer models--such as the $2,429 Fujitsu LifeBook T4215--don't require you to sacrifice power for functionality, because they offer the latest technology, including Intel Core 2 Duo processors. While not as elegant as either the Lenovo ThinkPad X60 or the Gateway M285-E, the LifeBook T4215 is highly configurable and features a specially coated screen for outdoor use, making it a good fit for a range of uses and budgets. It also boasts a useful feature not found on other tablets: The rotating screen swivels both ways.

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 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.


T7200: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.1":

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.


2.2 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


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".

81%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
