Fujitsu, bump down the resolution a little. 1024 x 600 was already so high on 5.6" screen and now 1280 x 800?

That is one thing that is now telling me not to buy it :(

how does the Silverthorne compare to Diamondville in performance?

it's strange how nobody really seems interested in this device, but were all drooling over the Raon. especially considering the versatility this device has being a convertible, something most people actually wanted the Raon to be. i know people will say the interest was so high in the Raon because of the highend CPU, but i know alot of people out there like us would be just fine with the Atom especially considering the extra battery life gained. what i think scares most people away from this device is actually the screen size of 5.6". so far 7" seems to be the smallest acceptable compromise by most people.

Yes, resolution is a bit too hight for this size. I think they could make 7 inch screen and still leave space on borders for hands. But such a consumption is nice and performance looks good, so I hope soon we will see the US15W chipset in all others Atom-based netbooks/UMPS.

Someone already make a test of the real battery life with Wifi ? Im very confuse about battery life.

When i read specification on DFJ store site (www.dfj-store.com) , its indicated 4.5 hours. but when i check the maker website, its indicated more than 8 hours. I asked DFJ and they replyed than 4.5 hours is more "realistic" and battery life can be longer with SSD model.

someone can also confirm than large battery is same than for U810 ? i have one battery from my ex U810..

I have been using the Fujitsu U2010 for about three weeks on the road in Cambodia, Vietnam and the Philippines. Battery life under balanced power setting with wi-fi and bluetooth mouse connected is about 3.5 hours continuous use for the standard battery.

As for the native high res screen, it's not as bad when used for surfing with Firefox. One can just zoom and unzoom rapidly with CTRL and + / - keys.

Lowering the native resolution via control panel resulted in the tabs on most dialogue boxes hidden. Though one can get by with using the tab key or enter key or Alt F4 to cancel.

The installed Zoom utility via custom key is clumsy and is limited to a fixed magnification as far as I know. Didn't read the manual so far :)

The best part is I can flip the screen (in "portrait mode") and hold it with one hand and read it like a novel in bed or on a train since it is only some 600 grams. The up/down keys can be used to turn the pages or the fingerprint sensor to scroll down.

At first, I thought I won't be able to live without my 12 inch laptop but U2010 performed quite well as a "laptop replacement". I even run Dreamweaver and Photoshop on it, and used the hard disk to back up my CF cards from camera :) Btw, the CF slot is useless as it is very slow. I use a Sandisk USB reader which tranfer 4G in about 6 minutes. I also have a 8G Extreme III SDHC card in the SD slot serving as a thumbdrive. Have not set up Readyboost yet.

jkk,
Can you put a link to the site
for purchase?

JKK said...

its there ;)
it says thanks conics...

and there is that green banner too...

Evilman said...

jkk,
Could you please assess noise level from Fujitsu u2010? Could you here it when you are in silent room? Or may be you can compare it with Samsung Q1?

Thanks!

lin71f said...

hey can you also test the CF card reader? Is it USB based or PCMCIA/PCI based? Does it recognize UDMA CF and transfer at UDMA rates or does it revert back to PIO?

Sull said...

Could you please test this device with mini PCI-E SSD drive, I think one for the dell mini 9 might fit ?

I have a broken hard drive cable and no parts are available so I am looking to see if this device can boot from PCI-E SSD :)

Nice review BTW

I enjoy using my U2010 although I timed the boot up time and it took about 4-1/2 minutes to finish loading everything. That is way too long. I have the 60GB model (looks like the drive is partioned into (2) 30GB drives).

If possible, I would like to swap out the 60GB with a SSD. Any suggestions?

Thanks.
Dave

Of course I meant "partitioned"

Hi

when you mean XP, do you mean XP tablet windows or normal XP?

>> can you do a card speed test (read and write) on the SDHC card and post a image?

Thx in advance... just curious to find out if there is a speed limit on the in-built reader
