Wanted to get Fujitsu U1010 (3.5) or a Kohjinsha last Thursday.
Finally, decided on Fujitsu U1010 (cos U1010 – 3.5G version was reserved by M1 for its customers) at S$1,888.
Tada! The Fujitsu Lifebook U1010! Only 610gm and fits nicely in my handbag 🙂
Compare its size to my Lenovo Y410…
… or my LG Viewty.
Looks small and nifty, right? 🙂
My key review after using it.
> Very light and fit snugly like a game machine.
> Tracking mouse (see the black square in the pic below) is easy to use
> The 2-cell battery can only last 1.5hours if surf using Wireless@SG or the mobile broadband non-stop. My package comes with 4-cell battery too. So, I have 4.5 hours in total and would require to shut down to change the battery. However, if u lower the LCD brightness and surf Wireless@SG without any USB peripheral connected to it, the 2-cell battery life can be extended to 2.5 hours 🙂
> There’s only 1 usb port for my usb mobile broadband modem. You can get a USB hub to overcome the issue. But, hey! why connect to so many peripherals if u surf on the move? I also bring along the external VGA/RJ45 port and USB hub for external presentations.
> Using MS Office is fast.
> Text is very small at 96dpi. I’m using 110dpi but some menu items cannot be seen.
> Surfing speed and experience is better than that of Kohjinsha.
> Its screen at 5.6″ is smaller than Asus Eee’s and Kohjinsha’s 7″ screen size. So, it will strain your eyes especially on a moving vehicle.
> Fujitsu U1010 has 3 years warranty compare to 1 year offered by Kohjinsha
