Review Fujitsu Lifebook AH530 Notebook

 

Price conscious all-rounder. Fujitsu tries to prove that strong m

Good application performance; Good gaming performance; Quiet operating noise; Luminous display; Fair price

Contrast poor display with a high black value; Sensitive high-gloss surfaces; Moderate connectivity; CPU throttling under full load; Poor loudspeakers; Tiny touchpad

Lifebook U810 Tablet

 

Fujitsu's LifeBook U810--an ultrasmall convertible tablet and laptop--is a 1.5-pound, palm-size Windows Vista system whose lilliputian dimensions are both its strength and its weakness. By trying to cram in most of the features you'd expect in a larger...

Easy to hold in your hands Nifty swiveling design

Sluggish performance Small size makes it hard to use

So who is the target audience for the LifeBook U810? People with Superman vision, really small fingers, and plenty of patience

Fujitsu Lifebook U810

 

Handheld PCs will eventually dominate the world. Is that an absurd claim? Well, maybe notthough it's not likely in the near future, or at their current prices. Yet despite a market that's been particularly tough on Ultra Mobile PCs (UMPCs), more and...

Convertible tablet. SD and CF card slots. Weighs only 1.5 pounds. Decent processing performance. Good battery life. USB port is fully powered for external devices

No cellular broadband. A little bulky for a handheld

A convertible tablet about the size of your palm, it can do a lot more than some of the other UMPCs in the market, though it lacks one crucial thing: cellular broadband.

Did Frodo Lose His Notebook?

 

For this flawed masterpiece, a shock-haired mad scientist trained his shrink ray on a tablet PC, then ran shrieking from his creation when he tried to run HD

Small. Like Hobbit sized small. Decent battery life. Priced low. Pretty machine with smart construction. Full QWERTY keyboard fits perfectly into an extremely small area

Keyboard size comes at a cost: function mapping choices are practically demented in their layout. Fat battery. Not quite pocketable. Screen feels small in its wide bezel. Windows Vista Business? Gag

Fujitsu LifeBook U810 Tablet PC First Look Review (Video)

 

The U810 is a solid little tablet. The chassis is sturdy and I didn't notice any flex. The mini-keyboard has a little flex, which reminded me of the LifeBook T2010. After a while though you wouldn't want to type on this keyboard because it really is...

Fujitsu LifeBook U810 review: Fujitsu LifeBook U810

 

Best ultramobile PC keyboard yet; tablet functionality provides another input option; access to pointing stick even when the tablet lid is closed; inexpensive for a UMPC.

Too many keys double-mapped; no mobile broadband (yet); thick screen bezel makes display look even smaller; limited ports and connections.

Ambitious but flawed, the Fujitsu LifeBook U810 has more of a traditional laptop design than other UMPCs, but the otherwise excellent keyboard is marred by the loss of several important keys.

Fujitsu LifeBook U810 Tablet PC Review

 

Fujitsu offers the first convertible clamshell UMPC at an aggressive price.

Relatively affordable, Good screen quality, Lots of hardware controls, Long battery life

No mobile broadband yet, Awkward keyboard, Low performance scores, Tiresome mouse navigation
