Fujitsu's pitch for the AU$1688 Stylistic Q550 is that it's a business machine, and, at least aesthetically, it's not adorned with much in the way of smooth curves or shiny metal. Measuring in at 275x192x16.2mm and weighing a minimum 730g, this is a solid chunk of tablet, or, in the Q550's case, Tablet PC. While the market's going mad for the iPad 2 (although we suspect at the time of writing that they're none too welcome at Samsung HQ), Fujitsu has stuck to the Tablet PC line with a Windows 7 Professional 32-bit PC.
At AU$1688, you might expect some quite high-end components under the hood of the Q550, but what you get is more akin to a netbook in terms of specific power features. An Intel Atom Z670 processor runs the Q550, supplemented with 2GB of memory and a 64GB SSD drive. Graphics are courtesy of Intel's ageing GMA600 processor, but nobody's going to be buying the Q550 to play games, in any case.
