Review: Fujitsu Lifebook T580 Tablet/Netbook

PCWorld: Review – Fujitsu Lifebook T580 Tablet/Netbook

PC World reviewer Loyd Case says the Lifebook T580 is ultimately too bulky to perform well as a tablet, though it’s light for a laptop, and the pen-based touch interface is too different from current finger-based touch interfaces.

“Carrying around and using the Fujitsu Lifebook T580 illustrates everything that’s right, and wrong, with the Windows Tablet PC model.

First, the upside: the combination of a multitouch screen with gesture recognition and a more traditional, stylus-based interface mesh well together. Given my weird combination of cursive and printing, handwriting recognition works surprisingly well using the stylus. The included Microsoft Touch Pack showcases the Windows 7 multitouch interface quite well. Having a sort of portable notepad seems like a useful thing.”
