About what I was expecting, and I think everything you said was pretty much fair, but in the T904's defense... It isn't consumer premium it is business premium. The packaging you pointed out is a prime example. Fujitsu doesn't do retail (at least in the US). The packaging you saw is what everyone sees. I think the fact that consumers can buy them at all is just Fujitsu throwing us a bone. "Ok, if you are willing to pay we will sell you one." They intend these to be sold in bulk to enterprises, universities, etc and configured/administered by tech departments. They are in no way consumer premium. Their packaging is utilitarian. They make no attempt at the box opening Christmas morning experience. The customer service is bare bones and will talk down to you. They don't have user friendly bloatware to keep your machine up to date. I think their intention is to leave this up to the tech departments administering the devices so they can decide for example if a given update breaks more than it fixes (this happens all the time). The view angles are definitely bad. I think they are significantly better than TN, but definitely well below your typical IPS. I agree lying flat on a table (particularly I high one) is pretty bad. Having used TN tablets for a decade now though I'm pretty accustomed to this problem. If I use it on a table, I prop something under the far side. I have a triangular column of card board and duct tape I made many years ago sitting on my desk just for this purpose =) Even without the view angles I'd use it for the more comfortable writing angle. Despite being much thinner than my old convertibles it is still too elevated off the desk to write on it comfortably while flat (the same goes for the SP1/2 IMO). It fixes two birds with one stone =) Most of the time though I prefer to write on it in my lap which also tends to alleviate the problem. Another place where the view angles are less of a problem is in laptop mode, which admittedly is how I use the device 90% of the time =) For me, I wanted a laptop first and a large writing space second. My 8" Asus M80TA is my primary penable tablet. We obviously have very different use cases and your blogs audience is much more in line with your use case =) But I just wanted to post an apposing view point. For what I need, I think it is pretty much the best device on the market.
