Performance and Benchmarks
System performance is excellent thanks to the standard Core 2 Duo P8700 processor, where some business tablets like the Latitude XT2 use the low-power processors which are slower. The T4410 has no trouble keeping up in day-to-day activities and provides quick boot and shutdown times. Users looking to increase overall system performance might want to look into configuring the tablet with a 7200RPM drive, which would further improve application load times. Gaming is out of the question with the Intel X4500 integrated graphics, but other forms of entertainment are still possible. HD movie playback is flawless for both 1080P and 720P video as well as online streaming HD Flash.

Heat and Noise
Thermal performance of the LifeBook T4410 is pretty good with the large chassis and passive vents located on the bottom and sides of the tablet. Under stress the tablet warms up about 10-15 degrees above room temperature, but still stays very comfortable in your lap. Fan noise at peak load is noticeable compared to other new tablets and notebooks I have reviewed but it would only be heard in a small room. Under normal activity the fan stays off or spins very slowly and is very hard to hear unless you put your ear next to the exhaust vent.
Fujitsu advertises that the T4410 is capable of running 5 hours and 25 minutes on battery. In our battery test with the screen brightness set to 70%, wireless active, and Windows 7 on the “Balanced” profile we managed 4 hours and 30 minutes before the system went into sleep mode. This compared to 4 hours of runtime on the Dell Latitude XT2 and 5 hours and 32 minutes of runtime on the multitouch Lenovo X200 Tablet. An auxiliary battery is offered for the T4410 which installs into the modular bay and supposedly increases the max runtime to just over 9 hours.
The Fujitsu LifeBook T4410 falls short compared to both consumer and business tablets on the market when it comes to overall build quality. It has more flex than we would like to see especially knowing how rigid some of the other competing models are. If the strength was increased this model would rate fairly high in all categories. The screen quality is excellent, showing almost no color distortion even at steep angles. Battery life was on par with other tablets we have reviewed and system performance was great with the standard Core 2 Duo processor. This tablet seems to bring a great mix of business looks and consumer features together and if it wasn’t for the copious amounts of keyboard and chassis flex it would high on my list of recommended tablet models.
- Excellent wide-viewing angle screen
- Good system performance
- Includes optical drive
- Lower than average build quality
- Keyboard has lots of flex
