Fujitsu begins taking orders for tablet with new Intel chip

The Stylistic Q550 tablet from Fujitsu contains an Oak Trail processor and is priced starting at $729

Fujitsu is now taking orders for its Stylistic Q550 Slate PC tablet, one of the earlier tablets to use Oak Trail, Intel's first dedicated tablet processor.

The tablet is priced starting at US$729, and will be delivered in the U.S. starting in June, according to Fujitsu's website.

It contains Intel's Atom Z670 processor. The chip, code-named Oak Trail, was officially announced by Intel in mid-April at the Intel Developer Forum in Beijing. It has a clock speed of 1.5GHz and includes specialized accelerators to enable 1080p high-definition video playback.

Fujitsu originally announced the Stylistic tablet in February and said the product would be targeted at business users. The device has a 10.1-inch multitouch screen, which can also accept stylus input. The tablet runs Microsoft's Windows 7 Professional OS and also includes the Office Starter 2010 productivity software.

The $729 model includes 30GB of solid-state drive (SSD) storage and a two-cell battery. Another model, at $849, includes 62GB of SSD storage and a four-cell battery.

Fujitsu has for years offered tablet PC models with keyboards and folding screens. The Stylistic Q550 will be the company's first tablet without a keyboard. It will compete in an increasingly crowded tablet market dominated by devices with ARM processors such as Apple's iPad and Samsung's Galaxy Tab.

But Fujitsu won't be the only Oak Trail supporter: Intel has said about 35 devices, including tablets and gaming consoles, will be available with the new chips starting in May. Lenovo, for example, showed an Oak Trail tablet at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year, and the product is expected to become available soon.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
