The Fujitsu Tablet PC is about the handiest computer yet: nothing more than a screen, you can write on it, launch features with a number of intuitive buttons, or hook up wirelessly to a keyboard. Some say the tablet is what the notebook computer should have been when it debuted on the market. The Fujitsu Tablet PC is more compact than a laptop--and much easier to use in the field--and more versatile than a handheld.

Some Fujitsu Tablet PC Specs

Weighing in at just over three pounds, this magazine-sized computer is less than an inch thick. It runs on a low voltage Intel processor that lets it run a long time between chargings--perfect for collecting data out in the field. And it connects to the rest of the world through a 56K modem or Wi-Fi system--both built-in. And its 60 MB hard drive is probably larger than the one on the desk top you got just a year or so ago.

The Fujitsu Tablet PC is so impressive that you'll never want to take it out, but don't worry if you do: it has an indoor/outdoor viewable display. In fact, the California Department of Boating and Waterways claims it's a solution to their field data collection needs. It's tough enough for the field--but not the streams.

If you are going to invest in top-of-the-line equipment like this (which, by the way, runs about two grand), and you expect to do field work, understand that the leather attache is great for the office, but won't make it outdoors. Keep your equipment safe. Waterproof, dustproof and drop protection cases are available to keep your equipment--and your precious data--safe from the elements.
