Fujitsu Lifebook P1510
- Really small
An ultralight tablet PC that is a little weak on character recognition, and too high on price.
Price$ 2,999.00 (AUD)
The Fujitsu Pinion is a lightweight tablet weighing a slight 1kg. With a footprint of 21x15x3cm, it is extremely portable, although it does look a little bit chunky. The screen can swivel 180 degrees and be used as a tablet in a vertical or horizontal configuration. However, when it is being used in tablet mode, you are relying on Fujitsu's own tablet software rather than Microsoft's Windows tablet software, which unfortunately is not integrated as well as it could be.
The optical character recognition (OCR) could be better. The software as mentioned above is Fujitsu's although it does allow you to scribble comments on Word documents that are viewable on other computers. Even though the handwriting recognition was weak, there is an onscreen keyboard and a real keyboard that takes up the full width of the notebook.
In case of theft or loss - the security of your data is paramount - Fujitsu has embedded a finger scanner in the side of the monitor. This allows for a single sign on, even when in tablet mode, and it can also be used to access encrypted files.
It is an average performer for its size, posting 4242 in 3DMark 2005SE, and 78 in PC WorldBench 5. The battery life was mediocre, running for 110 minutes in the worst-case scenario. The major drawback is that it has no optical drive; essentially, this cripples the Pinion, meaning you are relying on USB 2.0, or the CompactFlash slot

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.
I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
