Fujitsu Lifebook U810 alternatives
|Netbook Navigator Nav 7, 7.0 inch, 590 grams (1.3 lbs)|
A 7" UMPC built on Atom fills a requirement for a number of markets but take note, this is the older Atom platform. (Z5XX) with the slower GPU (200Mhz compared to 400Mhz on the Z6xx series.) It's strange to see a device like this without any form of video out. The rear-mounted touch panel and mouse buttons should improve Windows usage although we would want to test that before recommending a buy. Weight seems acceptable - 550gms
|Toshiba Libretto W100 (W105-L251 PLW10U-00201V ), 7.0 inch, 699 grams (1.54 lbs)|
A new and interesting design from Toshiba. Dual capacitative touchscreens and some well-integrated keyboard software make this a very interesting choice in the UMPC sector. Heat could be a problem and battery life with the small battery down to 2hrs. High-performance CPU should drive Windows 7 touch and muti-touch features well. Premium price.
|Viliv X70 EX, 7.0 inch, 660 grams (1.46 lbs)|
|Samsung Q1EX, 7.0 inch, 648 grams (1.43 lbs)|
|Archos 7 (320GB), 7.0 inch, 640 grams (1.41 lbs)|
|Gigabyte M700, 7.0 inch, 650 grams (1.43 lbs)|
|ASUS R70a, 7.0 inch, 730 grams (1.61 lbs)|
With an estimated 4 hours battery life this will make a nice upgrade from the R2E model.
|Solpi Solpi, 4.8 inch, 750 grams (1.65 lbs)|
|Samsung Q1 Ultra Premium, 7.0 inch, 800 grams (1.76 lbs)|
1024x600 on a 7" screen is great for handheld use. The mouse is a little dissapointing (its not a synaptics pointer but more of a basic joystick) and the keyboard will take a lot of work to get used to.
With the 1.3Ghz processor and Windows XP tablet edition this should be one of the most powerful UMPCs available.
|Samsung Q1 Ultra (Q1U-CMXP), 7.0 inch, 700 grams (1.54 lbs)|
1024x600 on a 7" screen is just perfect! The mouse is a little dissapointing (its not a synaptics pointer but more of a basic joystick) and the keyboard will take a lot of work to get used to. McCaslin architechture seems good - Vista runs very well indeed.
