    Pretty full featured. It might just be my next laptop.

    The stylus is for an active digitizer?

    There is also T4410 which is the Business version of T4310. :)
    Frank already posted those new Fujitsus on Announcement board.

    Well, I think discrete graphic for a tablet perhaps isa bit too much, as it may sacrifice portability of a tablet itself, not to mention the heat & battery loss.

    Yup. Might as well pick up another laptop for gaming for $1500 or so ($1000 gaming laptops exist as well) when you're not using your tablet for work. But by then, I'd be at home with my desktops.

    Discrete graphics as in an ATI 4330 or Nvidia 9400M, nothing fancy. They have similar power consumptions compared to Intel's X4500, with the added benefit of proper OpenGL support for Adobe and the 3D softwares. It's like a hand without a thumb....

    Hence, no sacrifices to the portability/heat/battery have to be made. Only sacrifice I can think of would probably be price, but looking at other normal notebooks, it shouldnt be too much... it's very frustrating....so near yet so far...:mad:

    9400M should be a good alternative :)

    This is just my thought, for device like tablet, battery life is one of many aspect ppl will consider before buying it, and you can see Intel offered Centrino platform that proven to be power efficient (at least comparing to the the AMD counterpart), mnfrs must be too lazy and don't want to bother breaking the Centrino platform (i.e not using Intel IGP) by adding discrete graphic.

    Another reason probably is because of the extra cost, using Centrino platform production cost should be significantly cheaper than using other component from different vendor separately (Nvidia GPU with Intel processor & Wifi). Manufacturers will have to just follow Intel specification instead of thoroughly testing the platform they made themselves. ;)
