Beyond a Notebook PC: The Fujitsu LifeBook T4410

By Eric Grevstad | Posted March 09, 2010

A convertible tablet PC combines the best of a slate and a notebook, and it offers many small businesses the versatility they need on the job. Fujitsu's been at the forefront of the technology for years, and HardwareCentral.com calls this one the best yet.


The iPad? Please. Long before Apple's new tablet was a gleam in Steve Jobs's eye -- even before Bill Gates told us in 2002 that the Tablet PC was destined to replace the notebook computer -- Fujitsu was on the front lines of tablet computing, primarily in places such as hospitals where workers carried tablets instead of clipboards to fill out forms and check inventories.

Over the years, Fujitsu has taken more and more aim at the enterprise hardware market, particularly with Tablet PC convertibles -- laptops whose screens swivel to fold back over the keyboard, creating a tablet.

The LifeBook T4410 ($1,969 as tested) is its most versatile convertible to date, because not only does it have both notebook and tablet operating modes but the latter is a two-way tablet, with a dual digitizer to respond both to its special stylus pen and to multi-touch fingertip gestures.
