Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 Tablet Review

A Japanese company, Fujitsu, 10.1-inch tablet that is based on the new Intel Q550 Trail area called Oak style. IPS screen, Intel Atom Z670 processor, single-core, integrated GMA 600 graphics and operating system, Windows 7, is specifically aimed at enterprises. It starts with € 699 (RRP) with a storage capacity of 30 GB as a non-UMTS model.

Fujitsu wants to jump on the bandwagon is moving at full speed with its Q550 style and take some market share. The company wants to deal specifically with the company's customers, in line with the tablet compared to consumer devices.

In addition to a fingerprint sensor, there is a SmartCard slot, the Advanced theft protection (ATP) and TPM (Trusted Platform) is installed. Taking into account the object and longed for an easy integration of existing IT infrastructure, Fujitsu is based on Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, including the included stylus to input interface.

The non-reflective 10.1-inch multi-touch screen has a resolution of 1280x800 pixels at 16:10 aspect ratio and can be used either with a finger or stylus. It has a battery and the system automatically detects when the user interacts with it. Thus, one hand on the screen, without triggering an action, for example.

The new Z670 Intel Atom single-core processor (Camino range of oak) with a clock frequency of 1.5 GHz and the GMA 600 graphics work units in Q550. The package is completed with the given WLAN, Bluetooth and a memory capacity of 30 SSD, 62 GB, respectively. Of course, a 3G UMTS module is also available for a fee.

Among the many features that are not really cheap and admission is first possible from € 699 (RRP), including value added. Tablet consumption comparable with Apple or Android IOS are also much cheaper and offers an improved user interface. We have audited the qualities and the daily use of the Fujitsu Stylistic Q550.

A good standard is given in the form of interfaces. Apart from an SD card slot and a USB 2.0 port, expandable via a hub, there's also an HDMI output installed. According to the spec chart, it supports the revision 1.3. However, a modern television with an interface connected 1.4a in function test (backward). In addition to two microphones, there is also a jack 3.5 mm stereo installed. But this is not a combo port for headphones - it only allows the transmission of sound.

The docking port at the back is rewarding because it allows the use of a port replicator or a docking station. The adjacent side event overwhelms us with an armada of sliders and control buttons. Besides the possibility of returning the unit on and off, and management of mobile technologies, there are three small buttons. They allow you to fade into the keyboard, rotate 90 degrees in both directions and access the Task Manager screen, open the combination "CTRL + ALT + FLSR" key on a laptop.

With the stylistic Q550, Fujitsu is the first manufacturer to offer a tablet that is based on Intel Oak Trail. And 'specially designed for tablets and ultra-thin devices, which are forced to work without a separate cooling unit. Intel Atom Z670 SoC (system-on-a-chip) is used here was introduced in 2011 Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in Beijing for the first time. The processor is one of the main current of the solution (1-core, 2 threads) with the transformation Lincroft core, 1.5 GHz clock speed and 512 KB of L2 cache.

The second component is the SM35 chipset, also known as Whitney Point, which implements the Intel GMA 600 graphics, HD audio, SATA 2, HDMI support and integration of DDR2 memory. As the platform for netbooks Pine Trail, including, for example, the Intel Atom N550 or N570, the SoC Z670 is made in a structure of 45 nm wide. However, the next generation Atom processor technology for manufacturing 32-nanometer called Cedar Trail was introduced at the same time.

The calculation of the line Maxon Cinebench R10 multi (34 bit) is a popular reference for verifying the performance of the processor. The tablet Q550 managed only 537 points lower in this trial and is well beaten at the end of our database, where all of a netbook with a high-end laptop is.

Despite their high performance profile, netbooks with the latest hardware is clearly an advantage. Two examples include the Asus Eee PC 1015PEM with an Intel Atom N550, and slightly less than 522 Acer Aspire netbook with AMD C-50 APU. These settings are nominally faster 64.3%, respectively, 58.5% with a score of 1.504 and 1.294 points.

Intel GMA 600 (PowerVR SGX) 3D performance is not convincing, either. It 'bad enough 3DMark05 only 253 points earlier. However, Intel GMA 3150 Mini new laptop is not really stronger than average, and the only one to reach 294 points, which is a bit 'more than 14%. AMD C-50 APU, dual-core solution for entry-level sector can clearly excel in this field stronger than the AMD Radeon HD 6250 Performance Plus is an apparent average of 90.3% can be 2599 points.

Futuremark benchmark system, provides punishment of small performances. Tablet reach 1191 points in PCMark Vantage general and can be found in the last places in our database. Several mini-notebook with a little 'old Intel Atom are nearby.

The tablet at the last available place, behind the mini-notebook AMD C-50 APU, the new PCMark 7 All in all not a very impressive performance for a device with the Windows operating system.

Of course, a look on the shelf many references, respectively browser should not be omitted in this test. Compared to existing devices with Android and the leader, Apple iPad 2, the Q550 over the range of superior performance in this test.

The plane left all the tablets based on Android or IOS clearly behind the benchmark in Google V8. With a score of 1601 points, the difference with the Asus Eee next fastest TF101 Transformer Pad is 57.3% (683 points). The iPad is only two of Cupertino in the middle of field with 355 points. Reduces lead SunSpider JavaScript benchmark and the test device is in the center. Finally, mention the 1653 Futuremark benchmarks Peacekeeper browser and therefore a similar investment. Its screen can be found in the appendix.
