    Go with the Toshiba R15. It's what I have and I am a student.

    thank you for your advice poetdante, and Mr. Doyle but what does the Toshiba R15 has to offer which is superior to the Fujitsu slate tablet and vice versa ???

    Simple. The R15 (or M4) is a convertible. Which means that you can typ without the whole docking station thing. It is great if I need to type a paper after I took notes on it in the library. Plus, the 5.something lb does not bother me. Rather, it builds arm and shoulder strength and endurance (just remember to switch arms)

    Oh, that's right the ST5000 is a slate. But isn't Motion Computing the best in that area. Not to mention the most expensive. I heard that a 1ghtz on thiers is like a 1.6 on a convertible.

    Your right thats something to think about but if you exclude the pricing which one would you rather have toshiba or fujitsu - and dont be biased cause you already have one :p

    Brand loyalty is a precursor to disaster :p
    That's like voting per party instead of per issue...

    The point is valid, the brand can only get you so far. Every great brand will sometimes have hiccups. I generally find Fujitsu to be an excellent brand with excellent computers though.
