Welcome to Reviews OnLine: Fujitsu Stylistic Tablet ST4110
Fujitsu Stylistic Tablet ST4110
by Rick Smith (November 7, 2002)


Fujitsu has been a leader in the "pen computer" business for over ten years. While many other manufacturers are now jumping on the "pen tablet" bandwagon, the latest Stylistic Tablet blends Fujitsu's past experience and reliability with a form factor that meets the needs of mobile professionals.

The Fujitsu Stylistic ST Series Tablet PC is a no compromise design that has many unique features such as:

  • Lightweight -- 3.2 pounds

  • Thin -- under 900 mils

  • Shock mounted hard drive (20 GB or 40 GB)

  • Very good battery life (up to 4.5 hours)

  • Optional built-in 802.11b (Wireless LAN)

  • Infrared port (IrDA 1.1)

  • Larger RAM capacity (Up to 768 Mb -- 256 Mb standard)

  • Easy system restore using PowerQuest Drive Image SE

    Other features of the Fujitsu Stylistic Tablet, common to many of the new tablet PCs are:

  • 10.4" XGA display

  • Ultra-Low voltage CPU -- 866 MHz Pentium III

  • Full Type II PC card slot

  • Two USB 2.0 ports

  • IEEE 1394 (FireWire) port

    A key feature of the Stylistic ST4110 is that the screen of this Tablet PC can be rotated between landscape and portrait modes without requiring a reboot of the system. Also, the active digitizer, embedded in the 10.4-inch XGA TFT display, makes "penning" easy and smooth.

    In addition to both pen and keyboard input, the Stylistic ST4110 also supports the tablet "application buttons" that are unique to Tablet PCs. These buttons assist you in launching key applications faster and to navigate through documents more easily.

    Restoring the operating system back to its factory installation is also quite easy, due to the built-in recovery method. By integrating PowerQuest's Drive Image technology, Fujitsu has made it easy for you to restore the system, because the backup is already loaded on the tablet (stored on a "hidden" 1.5 Gb drive partition). This is a very novel use of PowerQuest technology and is quite useful in a mobile product that needs to withstand rough treatment.

    Fujitsu Stylistic ST Series Tablet PC pricing starts at $2,199 for the base configuration and you can choose to be backed by either a one-year or three-year warranty. This warranty includes 24X7 technical support.

    The overall size of this Fujitsu tablet is:

  • 8.66" width

  • 11.86" height

  • between 0.82" -- 0.88" (thickness) but really should be called "thinness"

    Optional Tablet Dock

    The optional Tablet Dock adds all the ports needed for desktop peripheral connections, along with a modular bay for a DVD/CD-RW combination drive. Access to the Ethernet jack, modem port and external monitor connector do not require dock usage, because their connectors are already built into the tablet. The Tablet Dock also provides a quick release mechanism, so the tablet computer may be instantly removed, without any long "power down" process.
