Fujitsu T4215 Tablet PC Hardware InkShow

   We have had a lot of requests in the past several months to do an InkShow of the Fujitsu T4215 Tablet PC. In addition to a review of the T4215, folks have been asking for a comparsion between it and the Lenovo X60 Tablet PC. In this InkShow, I tried to accomodate both requests, as I took a look at the T4215 and also spent about 13 minutes comparing it to an X60 XGA Tablet. I’m sure I missed some comparison things, but as you’ll see in the video, I kept finding more things to compare even as I was trying to wrap things up! As you’ll also see in this InkShow, the two tablet pcs couldn’t be more different. As an example, and one I failed to mention in the review, Fujitsu’s speakers are on the outside front of the tablet. The Lenovo x60 speakers are on the bottom front of the tablet. Guess which sound better? As a result of comparing the two tablet pcs, I ended up covering some of the features of the T4215 twice.

Overall, I really like the T4215. As is the case with their other Tablet PCs, Fujitsu has done a first class job in its design, performance, and functionality. My only beef with the T4215 is the 12″ XGA screen. It is quite grainey and bothersome to the eye, much like the Toshiba M400 and M7 screens. I’ve got a few other nit picks, but they are personal preferences rather than design flaws. If you need a tablet pc with a smart card reader or with an integrated cd / dvd drive, I think the T4215 should be at the top of your list. A big plus with the T4215 over other tablets with integrated cd / dvd drives, is that the cd drive can be swapped out for a battery to provide additional mobile time.

The Fujitsu T4215 Core 2 Duo is now available with Vista Business, prices starting at $1989
