Fujitsu have just launched a Windows 7 slate aimed at businesses called the STYLISTIC Q550. And we get some hands-on time with it.
Obviously this slate is aimed at business users, you can tell that when you look at the host of security related features such as the fingerprint reader, disk encryption and smartcard reader! It doesn’t mean however that users outside of the business wouldn’t want to play with on. I have to say I really liked it and I look forward to a longer term test.
Windows 7 Professional (32 bit edition)
10.1 inch anti-glare display (with a viewing angle of up to 170 degrees)
30GB or 60GB SSD with full disk encryption support
800 grams weight
optional TPM module
Up to 8 hours of battery life
Front and rear cameras
SD card slot
There are three models:
The 30GB WiFi model is £749
The 30GB 3G model is £799
and the 62GB 3G model is £859.
The 30GB WiFi model is out now and the two 3G models will be out some time in August.
A Closer Look
Let’s have a closer look at the Q550.
It has a full size HDMI port on it for connecting to monitors, tv’s and projectors.
It comes with a stylus so you don’t have to buy one as well.
It has it’s own dedicated CTRL/ALT/DELETE button
A fingerprint scanner is standard as well.
It has a removable battery which is very useful!
