First Look: Fujitsu LifeBook T4215

1:46 /

The Fujitsu LifeBook T4215 is made for heavy tablet use; this pricey but powerful convertible tablet offers an indoor/outdoor screen that swivels both ways, which may help you forget about its flimsy keyboard.

[ Music ] >> I'm Dan Ackerman, senior editor of CNET.com and we are taking a look at the Jujitsu Life Book T4215. Now this is a convertible tablet laptop, we've seen these before however this is a tablet with a twist. Usually you can take your tablets screen and rotate it like this if you try to go back the other way; you're going to snap it right off. This guy however you can go this way, or you can go this way, that's right you have 360 degrees of tablet rotating action, but you only get one swivel, if you keep going this way you're going to be in the market for a new laptop pretty soon. So once you decide which way you want to spin your tablet you just fooled the screen down, it automatically reorients itself and you can operate it right here in your hand like a tablet. Now the stylish you need to control the laptop and tablet form is held right here in the screen, it's not quite as elegant as other tablets where they hide the stylets[SP?] inside the body of the laptop, but at least in this case you'll know if it's missing. And you just take the little pen and you tap on the screen and you hold down a little button like that to right-click and you can control any kind of tablet functions right from there. There is also a fingerprint reader built into the screen in case you don't want anybody messing with your stuff. Now tablets get a lot of wear and tear cell if you shake, rattle or roll this thing it's actually going to lock the hard drive down for you to protect you from damage. There's actually a little seismograph program built in that monitors the X, Y and Z access and if you shake the laptop it shows up right there and will freeze the hard drive. Like a lot of other tablets we've looked at recently, this guy has a full-size keyboard and touchpad and a lot of the other amenities you may be used to like a media card reader, an optical drive and of course Bluetooth, so this can pull double duty as your main laptop and as a tablet. I'm Dan Ackerman and that's the Jujitsu Life Book T4215. ^M00:01:44 [ Music ]
