Fujitsu Lifebook T4410 review

We review the Fujitsu Lifebook T4410 to see whether it is a tablet that eases IT managers' headaches or just makes them worse.

Fujitsu Lifebook T4410
Price
£845

The build quality is also average. While the front of the screen provided enough strength to stand up to the rigours of touch screen computing, the rest of the T4410 was less impressive: gentle prodding on the rear of the panel saw ugly desktop distortion appear, and the base creaked loudly when gentle pressure was applied.

This basic specification - which costs 845 exc VAT - can be augmented with a range of optional upgrades. Adding a 3G modem bumps the price up by around 200, and larger hard disks, more powerful processors and greater amounts of memory are also available.

Fujitsu also offers a range of accessories, too. A Port Replicator costs around 100 and provides more USB ports, display outputs and Ethernet ports, and a modular bay on the side of the machine - which housed a DVD writer on our particular Lifebook - could instead hold a smaller second battery or a second hard disk.

The price inevitably increases, though, if Fujitsu's full range of upgrades and options is included: certain versions of the T4410 can cost beyond 1,200 with the addition of a 3G modem, second battery or more powerful processor.

While it's a competent tablet and a reasonable machine, the T4410 just isn't worth that much - and other machines, like Lenovo's ThinkPad X200, Toshiba's Portege M750 and Panasonic's Toughbooks enter the fray when the price rises above 1,000.

Stick to the basic specification, though, and the Fujitsu offers an unfussy, yet perfectly adequate, tablet experience, and it's well worth considering if rival machines are just too expensive.

Verdict

A decent multi-touch tablet attached to a reasonable laptop - albeit with suspect build quality - this cheaper configuration T4410 is worth considering against a range of £1,000-plus competitors.

If you want to spend extra cash for a 3G modem or any of the other optional upgrades, though, systems from Lenovo, HP and Panasonic offer better value
