Fujitsu LifeBook Tablet PC – T5010
Today we will be talking about the big brother to the T1010 Fujitsu LifeBook Tablet PC which is the T5010. The T1010 is an entry level touch screen laptop. The main difference between the T1010 and the T5010 is that the T1010 has what called a passive digitizing screen and the T5010 has an active digitizing screen. Active digitizers are much more accurate at recognizing handwriting.
Tests show that the touchscreen is quite responsive which is a key factor in choosing a touch screen laptop. If the touchscreen doesn’t work or is sluggish, the touch screen interface will basically be worthless to you.
This Fujitsu touchscreen notebook has a 13.3 inch screen that is hinged so it can pivot either way which is very handy for presentations. Testers report that the screen colors are quite vivid and bright on this Fujitsu notebook.
The T5010 comes supplied with a with a standard electronic plastic stylus pen. One thing that isn’t standard is that you can turn it over and it will actually work as an eraser. This is a really cool feature if you ask me!
The battery life of the T5010 has been reported to be quite low when Windows was running in performance mode. One tester reported that they got a battery life of only 1 hour and 40 minutes. The same tester reported almost 4 hours when windows was set to balanced mode. This is actually quite a respectable run time.
One thing that I don’t really like about this touchscreen notebook is that it comes with a white keyboard and white keyboards can be a bit difficult to keep clean. Of course this doesn’t affect functionality. It’s just a personal preference. One really cool feature about this model is that it has an extra bay for installing an extra battery or extra hard drive.
The base model of this computer starts at $1759 and with all the bells and whistles, it will cost you $1969.
Specifications for the base model:
- Windows Vista Business

- 1Gig DDR3 RAM

The base model of the T5010 isn’t equipped as well as it’s little brother, the T1010 touchscreen notebook but it comes with an active digitizing screen which is the reason it is priced higher.
Personally, I think it’s as good idea to spend the extra money and go with a touchscreen notebook that is equipped with and active digitizer.
