Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 Slate PC Hits Pre-Order
 
 

I have never been convinced there is much of a market for a slate computer and I think the overall poor sales of the machines have proven that most people feel the same way. Fujitsu is one of the few firms to find some success with its machines, particularly in the medical setting and business world. The company has a new slate computer that is up for pre-order. The machine is called the Stylistic Q550 Slate PC.

The machine has a 10.1-inch WXGA LED backlit screen that supports capacitive multi touch. The Slate has a fast swap battery for all day computing power and it has a SmartCard slot, fingerprint sensor and more. The slate is very light at 1.7 pounds and runs Windows 7 Pro.

The Q550 starts at $729 with a Z670 Atom processor, Office starter software is installed, and a 30GB HDD is inside. The machine has 2GB of RAM and Intel GMA 600 graphics along with WiFi and more. The base model has a 2-cell battery. The more advanced version starts at $849 and uses the same hardware with a 62GB HDD and a 4-cell battery.

My Take: The Q550 will have very limited appeal to most users and unless you have the distinct need for a Slate with Windows 7, you will be better served by a normal tablet or a normal netbook.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
