It’s been over a year since I bought my laptop. I actually bought two laptops before this one. The first was a Fujitsu P5020D. I loved it, but at that time in my life I didn’t really need a laptop. So I returned it. Almost a year later, when I started traveling for Overdue Media, I bought a Toshiba M205, figuring that being able to draw strips on the road would be an advantage. But it wasn’t a very good drawing solution for me, so I sold it and bought the updated Fujitsu P7010D.
I love it.
Because form factor is so crucial to a laptop decision it’s important to really analyze one’s lifestyle. How often will I be carrying it? Where will I use it – on a desk, in a bus, on a plane, outside? What will I used it for – coding? Photoshop? Reading email? Writing?
In my case there are several issues that made this the best choice for me and still do:
In many ways this computer is the best I’ll get for a while. Fujitsu is competing with Sony for the smallest-ultreportable title. This is a shame because they’re making sacrifices – the smaller, slower hard drive being the most notable. But that’s okay, because for now my litle Fuji meets my needs just fine. Big kiss.
