Fujitsu Launches 12-inch Convertible Core i3 Tablet

Boasting a 12.1-inch, WXGA, LED backlight display (with a pen-and-capacitive-touch dual digitizer) on a bi-directional hinge; Intel's Core i3 (2.26GHz) processor; 4GB DDR3; 320GB of storage; a full size, spill-resistant keyboard; WiFi; and Bluetooth, the TH700 is an impressive machine, even if a 6-cell battery is a little disappointing. As far as aesthetics go, it's not exactly stunning but it's not ugly either, just a bit industrial looking.

Fujitsu rolled this one out pretty quietly and is offering a $50 rebate on top of the $1,149 starting price. It's available now from Fujitsu's website.

Any takers?

    ah sexy, have quite liked convertibles, but the price is still quite a turnoff for just adding a spinning hinge and touch screen for the spec's

    No thanks, too expensive.

    128 GB SSD would be really neat energywise

    A little less money and I'd be jumping.

    Fair price for a tablet pc, but yet another disappointment. I use to be fine with these tablets, but now that I am getting into digital art and video editing I find the low resolutions available frustrating.

    In fact, I got so frustrated I had to go buy an old Toshiba M200 to get decent screen resolution (1400x1050). It looks like my only solution is to go desktop and somehow find $2000 for a 21" Cintiq.

    It is a bit of a shame. Manufacturers haven't realized that tablet pcs haven't caught on - few people realize how to use them for inking (or realize that it helps with professors when your screen is folded down and they can see you aren't on Facebook, checking email, or watching streaming video). Nor do they realize the potential for digital artists.

    Not for me thanks. Small screen, wimpy hardware (for a laptop even), overpriced. I bet this will go over like a lead balloon.

    considering that this is only off by $300 with the highest grade iPad with thrice the hardware, you'd think this would go pretty well.

    A tablet needs to be thin and light like iPad except not restricted to manufacturer-approved software.

    I like. If I had that cash I'd buy one up.

    For me it is too expensive.
