I recently posted a screenshot of my working desktop on the Fujitsu P1610 and since I installed Vista Ultimate on Miyagi this week I thought I’d be remiss if I didn’t post the Vista equivalent desktop shot.  I decided to post three to show off a little of Vista Ultimate on the P1610 so here they are in no particular order:

Jk_vista_desktop_1

Jk_vista_desktop_2

Jk_vista_desktop_window_flipping

This last one shows the uber-cool window flipping which is lightning fast on the Fuji, even with video running in one of the windows.  I have a full working system built now with most of my core apps and will try to use it one day this week.  My buttons on the bezel are still not functioning, even though I’ve read of others getting them to work so I need to look into that further.

  1. It’s good to see Aero working fully on this device James.

    I must admit, the sidebar erally comes in to it’s own on a widescreen display. On a standard 4:3 display I can’t help but feel that it’s getting in the way a bit – even if it actually doesn’t.

    Intuit sent out an email last week that only QuickBooks 2007 is compatible with Vista. So be prepared to upgrade if you are a QB users, and if you support users with older versions of QB make sure you keep at least one machine running XP.

  3. I really like the look of the Vista running on the little Fujitsu. How much RAM is required in the real world?

  4. Did you guys watch the latest Pogue’s video from the New York Times? There’s a sarcastic comparison of Vista and OSX :)

  5. Miyagi has 1 GB of RAM which seems to be plenty. I haven’t started playing around with ReadyBoost yet.

    @ Nikooo

    That’s so interesting…I’ve been using Mac OSX for over a year and Vista since RC2. At first, Vista seemed like a total copy of OSX. Now that I’m using Vista more (and still using OSX), I can safely say that Vista IS a MSFT product and is NOTHING like OSX.

    Anyone who says OSX and Vista are the same either (a) haven’t used OSX for a long time, (b) haven’t used Vista for a long time (c) looked at screenshots/videos of Vista/OSX and made their conclusions.

  7. James; thank you for your response to my email the other day on the 1610′s durability. I have been reading the Fujitsu web site and am a little confused about the software bundle. Was ritePen 2.5 bundled with your 1610? If it was, how do you like it? I have never been a fan of TabletPC’s TIP concept and ritePen looks like a better system to me.

    Thanks

  8. J Warner, I believe that ritepen is on a CD that came with the P1610 but I haven’t installed it yet. I have used ritePen for a long time however, and have reveiwed it here:
