The Fujitsu LifeBook T4215 is made for heavy Tablet use. This powerful convertible Tablet has a Core 2 Duo processor and offers a 12.1" indoor/outdoor screen that swivels both ways and still maintains the performance of a full function notebook complete with a modular bay. The T4215 is ideal for students and varying workforces that require flexibility in usage models.
An excellent product.
Pros: The T4215 is an excellent Tablet. It has a 1400×1050 indoor/outdoor screen that is great for traveling. The keyboard is solid and easy to read, not to small. It has all the features, bells and whistles a user could ask for.
Cons: The T4215 is a bit heavier than some other Tablets on the market, but it does have a removable DVD drive. I would like a better viewing angle on the 1400×1050 display because sometimes it puts off a glare. A little more screen brightness would be nice as well or at least a chance to adjust it better.
Surprisingly comfortable for the size.
Pros: I’m on the road constantly and the T4215 is the perfect Tablet because it’s really not like carrying anything extra with you. It’s built well, doesn’t feel flimsy, runs smoothly and the pen works great. Overall, I think it is a neat package.
Cons: The battery life is not so good and it only has one pcmcia slot, but that’s the trade-off for a Tablet of its size.
A great piece of hardware.
Pros: It’s built very well and the pen system works flawlessly. The weight/performance ratio are good and so is the built-in 3G docking station. I like the Eco mode, which lets you turn off components that are not needed like the DVI and VGA connectors on docking station. If you need more power you can swap the CD bay for a secondary battery.
Cons: Price tag is quite heavy, but it’s worth it in the long run.
Pros: Perfect handwriting recognition, bi-directional swivel screen, fast processor and lots of room for storing music files, photos or just your basic documents.
Cons: It gets hotter than the P7000 I had and it’s twice as heavy, but it is fully loaded.
I highly recommend this laptop!
Pros: Solid Tablet laptop that has consistently given me battery life of over five hours. The best screen response I have used yet, which is very important for a convertible Tablet! The finger print scanner works well and provides management for all user passwords. Good software packages and you can upgrade to 2GB or 4GB of ram on any Tablet!
Cons: No big issues, merely nit picky things like the keyboard layout is not as good as the IBM (the HOME and END keys require the FUNCTION key to use). The laptop gets hot when in use.
Great, if you can afford it.
Pros: Great performance and not a lot of unnecessary programs. Company actually delivered on the original date as opposed to others shipped directly from Japan. Formerly owned X41 Tablet, but it was very slow and had a lot of unnecessary software, unfortunately my X41 met an untimely demise and Lenovo support/warranty is not what IBM used to be. Opted for this device vs. the Lenovo-IBM and it was a good decision.
Cons: Other than the fact that the T4215 cost a lot more than other Tablets, I have none so far.
Fantastic and greatest Tablet so far.
Pros: Up to 4GB of fast 667MHz RAM. Sharp screen and good heat management, with the Core 2 Duo (2.0GHz) processor.
Cons: The sound quality can be improved.
