In Conclusion:
After three and a half years I have found a convertible tablet pc that I like so much I don’t want to give the review unit back! Weighing 2.2 pounds with the 3 cell battery and 2.5 pounds with the 6 cell battery, an 8.9″ wide SVGA display with touch screen, Intel Pentium M 1.2 GHz processor and 30 gigabyte hard in a 9.3″ x 6.57″ x 1.36″/1.46 package make the Fujitsu P1510D Tablet PC an excellent choice for any one who travels and wants or needs the convenience of a convertible pc with out the weight.
