Fujitsu Tablet PC T5010 V.S T4410

by mitcusoon / December 1, 2009 11:08 AM PST

I am about to make my first Tablet PC purchase. After a good research I discovered that Fujitsu is the market leader in Tabelt PCs.

Initially I decided that I'll go for the T5010 becuase it has a bigger screen and more ports/options. Considering that T4410 is a new release with an HDMI port and 2 MP webcam camera, I'm having second thoughts about it. On top of that, one of the main differences about T4410 that attracts me to it is that

"Up to 1.3 GB shared video memory using Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT), depending upon the amount of installed system memory"

Compared with T5010 it can go upto maximum of 400 MB of shared video memory.

Another thing that I'm really confused about is that is 1.2" in screen size difference really that big of a deal? I have only used 15.5" or greater till this day. I have never worked on a smaller screen for more than half hour (if not less).

So my question is which one should I go for? I'm really confused before I make this expensive investment. Any help/comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

For me the decisions are easy.

Since I know I want HDMI, that's it.

As to the video memory that's over analyzing but having many Intel 4500MHD display chip machines around here and my kid's laptop has that I think that's the right one.

Thanks for your comments.

So how can 1 HDMI be of so much use? What do you use it for? Also, if I attach the T 5010 with its docking station, that does give me an HDMI port.

Any other significant differences that anyone knows off.

Why HDMI?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / December 2, 2009 9:14 PM PST

For me it's because we do presentations of our software (I write software, design hardware and such.) With all the new displays I want my laptop to be ready for any display I run into.

If you don't need this, don't buy it. But it is also a sign of it being a design from today and not an older dated model.
