Reviews for the Fujitsu Stylistic Q550

81% Review Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 Oak Trail Tablet/MID | Notebookcheck
Nothing special. The Japanese company, Fujitsu, brings out a 10.1 inch tablet based on the new Intel Oak Trail range called Stylistic Q550. The IPS display, Intel's Atom Z670 single core CPU, the built-in GMA 600 graphics and the OS, Windows 7, are especially aimed at businesses. It starts at 699 euros (RRP) with a memory capacity of 30 GB as a non-UMTS model.

As a business machine, the reasonably thin-and-light Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 ticks all the right boxes--security, swappable battery, matte screen, and active digitizer. The only caveat is the pokey Atom processor. If you run only a few things at a time, and nothing too media heavy, this tablet should be able to handle general office tasks without slowing you down. The machine's usability, battery life, and Windows 7 convenience make it one of the strongest slate-style business tablets on the market today.

80% Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 (Intel Atom Z690)
Source: PC Mag English
The Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 (Intel Atom Z690) brings business functionality and rugged construction to a Windows tablet that is easy to use and ready to integrate into your existing IT structure. Though hampered by some of the problems seen in its predecessor, like a bit of extra weight and the lack of storage for its stylus, the new Q550 (Intel Atom Z690) is still a smart choice for any business that needs Windows computing in a mobile package. Between its best-in-class navigation and gains in processing power thanks to the new Atom Z690 processor, the new Q550 is a compelling buy, but so far the Samsung Series 7 Slate (700T1A) (Best Deal: $1341.99 at TechLoops.com) is the only tablet PC we've seen that provides an experience on par with a standard laptop.

Unlike Apple’s iPad, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab or the other line-up of tablets found in your local PC World retail store, the Stylistic Q550 is firmly aimed at the enterprise market. Pitched at businesses seeking a rugged tablet device that can effortlessly slot onto their network, Windows 7 is the proven choice for businesses looking for a device that integrates effortlessly onto their network.

A Windows Tablet Review: Fujitsu Stylistic Q550
Source: Small Business Computing English
The shortcomings with Fujitsu Stylistic Q550's user interface will be immediately obvious to anyone who has used an iPad or other quality consumer tablet. The trouble is, many of your users will have already had their hands on an iPad. They may balk at using a much less user-friendly device. The shortcomings are not fatal, however. For companies that need the security features and connectivity and prefer to stick with familiar Windows for tablets, the Q550 has much to recommend it and any awkwardness with the interface can be overcome.

It was tablets like the Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 that caused the computer industry to fold on Microsoft’s flawed tablet concept, long before Apple showed it was possible to build a long-lasting intuitive pad that loves fingertip control. If you’re a business professional and are issued with a Fujitsu Q550 in your line of work, be warned you'll be battling with an unwieldy, unholy relic of the past.

The Q550 makes a lot of compromises and they may not be the right ones for you. You get business security features and full-size ports in compact but sturdy package - but not the full power to go with them. Although it doesn't compete with the price of Android tablets or the iPad, it's one of the cheapest Windows tablets with both pen and touchscreen interfaces. Unfortunately, keeping the price down means it's short on memory and storage. Performance is the real problem here; the Atom Z series was promised as the right chip for tablets with full features and good battery life and here it only delivers the reasonable battery life.

There’s no denying that the Q550 comes with all the bells and whistles and the digitising kit will appeal to some but the fundamental gutlessness of the underpinnings makes it hard for me to give it an unqualified recommendation. I’m not even sure that business users won’t get a bit impatient with the essential turgidity of the thing, though at least they won’t have to cough up £800 for the privilege.

With its collection of utilities and security features, the Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 has successfully married business functionality with a tablet form factor. Though hampered by some of the same problems seen in many Windows tablets, like the lack of a sensible virtual keyboard and a clunky touch UI, the Q550 manages to sidestep many difficulties thanks to its combination of a pen input and dedicated physical controls. If your needs aren't tied to an operating system, the Apple iPad 2 is still the best tablet out there. But if your business needs Windows computing in a mobile, hands-on package, the Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 is one of the best options available to you.

We can't fault the features of this tablet, but when it comes to performance the technical grunt is lacking. It took 12 seconds to load the BBC homepage and it had trouble keeping up when we started running multiple pages and office applications. We also noticed a tendency for the tablet to really heat up after an hour or so of use.

Fujitsu's latest Windows 7 tablet has some useful hardware features, but unfortunately the whole is less than the sum of its parts.

The Fujitsu Q550 is a genuinely interesting tablet, and one that will appeal to buyers other than the business crowd Fujitsu's gunning for. As a graphics tablet to use out in the field, it's an excellent device thanks to its matt screen and digitizer. However, it's also not particularly powerful given its price. It demands some patience, but for arty types it arguably has more to offer than an iPad 2.

Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 tablet review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Overall, the Stylistic Q550 is a decent attempt to offer a compact tablet with full Windows compatibility. Its performance is only on a par with a netbook, but its security features and compatibility with enterprise management infrastructure should have some appeal for large organisations.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 600: Integrated (onboard) graphics chip in the Atom Z600 series CPUs with a licensed PowerVR SGX core. DirectX 10.1 support but because of only 4 shaders not suited for 3D games. The integrated video decoder accelerates the playback of HD videos (MPEG2, VC-1, AVC).

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 Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


Z670: Slow single core processor for tablet pcs that includes the GMA 600 graphics card (with video decoding features) and a DDR2-800 memory controller (max 2 GB).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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


0.857 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: 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".


64.18%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
