    Hi everyone...

    I've been reading this forum for quite a while now...

    Last Friday i ordered the T902...
    Well... The T904 is anounced...
    Would you wait for it and cancel the Order ?

    Things i Want and why i ordered the T902:
    First of all Toutch and Digitizer are NOT my Priority...
    If the Digitizer has a glitch... well i can live with that...

    I'm an IT-Guy... I need the 16 Gigs of Ram for VMware...
    I want the Dockingstation for my Office...
    The replaceable DVD is cool... Love that with my old Dell...
    So i could use second Battery if needed...
    Or a second HDD...
    It has all the USB, LAN etc. ports i need...
    And... It has integrated 3g/WWan...

    That where the Things i was looking fore...
    So...
    Stick with the T902... if it is still available... ?

    The system is amazing aside from the pen glitch. If you try to play high end 3D video games it gets hot inside and throttles the GPU (not the CPU speed though) back to keep it in the thermal limits.

    Curious though, if pen and digitizer aren't important to you, why not get a more affordable Fujitsu Lifebook with modular bay? Any particular reason beyond what you mentioned that you need the more expensive convertible functions?

    If you need 16 gigs of ram and want more power, stick with the T902. The T904 has a ULV CPU instead of the full voltage one the T902 has, and is also limited in performance by 1 SODIMM slot (limits the speed of the integrated GPU among other things) and a max of only 8 gigs RAM.

    I'm currently animating an HD intro in After effects for a cooking show for broadcast on a T902! This thing is a beast.

    Quite simple...

    i don't realy need the Pen but the Tablet Mode should be cool for watching Videos or Presentations...

    And i want the Touch Screen option to test Win8.1 and who knows... maybe the Pen is cool for Visio and Stuff like that...

    Touch works really well for my T902. I actually really liked using windows 8 on it, before I reverted to 7 to work on the pen issues.

    If you're not going to be drawing or using the pen a lot, the T902 should be plenty of machine.

    The big thing would be the screen resolution. The T902 is awesome at 1600 x 900, but the T904 is 2560 x 1440 for the same size screen. That's a serious jump in pixel density.

    Well...
    i finaly got my T902, 8gig Ram, 256 GB SSD LTE

    till now a few minor problems and the Digitizer glitch but over all i love it...

    The only thing i'm starting to hate is the Keyboard...
    Maybe my Keyboard is not ok but...
    in comparison to any other Notebook Keyboard i ever Owned (Starting with an Old Toshiba, various Dell Latitude, XPS, Alienware etc.) The Keyboard is a hack keyboard...
    You need to Press pretty hard and with my 10 Finger writing Style i often miss keys cause i think i pressed them but they don't register...

    I just bought the 5 Year NBD support and think about using it or is this a Fujitsu thing ?

    That doesn't sound right at all. Unless your used to a very high standard of keyboards, the keyboard on the Fuji T902 is one of the best chiclet styles I have ever used. I never see keys missed. The duo 13 has a terrible tiny keyboard and if you don't hit the keys directly in the center they don't register etc, so I know what you mean. It could be it needs a bit of breaking in, but if the problem persists or certain keys feel worse than others than I would hit up Fujitsu for a new one.

    The T904 (wonder why they skipped a number..) looks divine and so sleek! Seems lighter and the trackpad is gorg!

    But I'm still very much in love with my T902. This baby's superb and is hardy in my rough handling and lugging around. Just wished it was a tiny bit lighter though.

    :D

    Nah, not really, just amateur scribbles ehehe. I do a few drawings or designing for work occasionally - I am supervised by a learning specialist and we do module development and event management stuffs. It's very convenient as I only need to swivel the screen to show my boss when I'm creating a logo etc and she'd give me her feedback. Easy to erase, edit, the works.

    very cool. Glad to see another T902 user around here. I'm gonna assume you've encountered the pen glitch well documented around here?
