Fujitsu Australia 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

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.
I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.
I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
