Fujitsu_t4215CNET usually provides the point ratings in their reviews, but I can’t seem to find out why the Fujitsu T4215 Tablet PC garnered a 7.3 out of 10. That could be the "correct" rating based on their system, but it’s difficult to see the specifics.

Overall, the review is generally positive and points out features like the dual-swivel screen, usage of the 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, indoor/outdoor display, nearly four hours of battery life, and solid benchmark specs. On the downside are factors such as the cost (nearly $2,500), the keyboard felt flimsy, stylus placement on the front didn’t look nice and the fact that you have to calibrate the screen in both portrait and landscape. While that calibration "issue" sounds like a negative in the review, that’s pretty typical fare for Tablet PCs; if they took points off for that, it would be a shame.

  1. While CNET is good for reviews in general, they never made any single good tablet review. As you stressed sometime ago, the main concept behind tablets is not well understood.

    I do think that the quality of the reviews you did in the past is better than what is offered by CNET.
