    Hi all - Happy New Year

    Ive been researching a slate tablet and am now leaning towards the fujitsu ST503x and the Electrovaya sc3000-

    I am in Wales, UK and it would be far easier for me to order Fujitsu (and I love all the reviews) EXCEPT for the fact that Barry Doyles excellent review says that the 5020 graphics is a let down - seeing as I NEED mine for photoshop work (Im a commercial illustrator with a very sketchy style) I need decent graphics capability -

    apparently the ST5030 model has addressed this issue with 915gm graphics - (this means nothing to me!!!!) Im very very green!!! (but learning)

    Barry - and anyone else - please can you help me - would this solution change your opinion on your review - you said that artists might want to look elsewhere for a slate solution due to poor graphics - !!! The 915gm seems comparible with other slates????

    I have looked and looked - I do not know the Electrovaya company - and I like everything I hear about fujitsu support etc

    Your comments and opinions gratefully received!

    Emma

    Emma -

    The graphics card is an issue for gaming, not Photoshop. PS is a CPU and RAM intensive application, not graphics card.

    Emma, you can also rest assured that the new Intel GMA900 graphics in the current ST5030 are about a 400% improvement. You will be just fine with this new model for graphics as an artist. No worries!

    I rarely have any lag in my experiences except when I Play a movie on the hard drive. I believe with the updated Vid chip, it's the same as the ST-503O. the sc-3000 does leave a 1.5 chip, but it's more limited on memory. I'm happy with my Fujitsu, but I know I'd be just as happy with an Electrovaya.
