GBM InkShow: 3-Way Tablet PC Comparison

In this GBM InkShow, I put the Fujitsu T5010, Fujitsu T2010, and HP TX2051 through their paces. Of course there’s no such thing as a winner in these types of comparisons since each device is dedicated to a separate market. The T5010 is the high-performance beast in this comparison. Running the latest Centrino 2 Duo Core processor and 2GB of the latest DDR3 RAM, the T5010 is simply blazing. The T5010 is the most expensive of the group, but if you’re looking for all out speed in a larger-than-12″ tablet, this is the only way to fly. Its weight is offset by its sheer performance and screen real estate. The T2010 is the ultra-mobile computer of the group, using an ULV processor and weighing in at 3.5 pounds. The T2010’s price is nestled between the T5010 on the high end and the TX2051 on the low end. Battery life and portability reigns supreme with the T2010. The TX2051 is an Entertainment PC with best-of-group speakers and the full array of media buttons. It’s more of a media-centric notebook with tablet functionality built-in, but its exceptional inking capabilities and its touch feature cannot be overlooked. However, its narrow viewing angles is problematic. It’s also the least expensive of the group. Keep in mind the TX2051 has been replaced with the TX2500.
