The Lifebook T731 Tablet PC with Active Digitizer (Pen Input Only) by Fujitsu is a hybrid tablet/notebook with a bi-directional swivel hinge that allows you to convert the notebook to a tablet by rotating the display and folding it flush with the keyboard.
It features a 2.4GHz Intel Core i3-2370M processor with a 3MB cache, 4GB of 1066MHz DDR3 RAM (upgradeable to 8GB total) and a 320GB SATA hard drive running at 7200 rpm.
It also features a 12.1" widescreen LED backlit LCD with a native 1280 x 800 resolution and employs an Intel HD 3000 graphics processor with up to 1.3GB of dedicated memory. The T371-W7-005 model has an active digitizer screen, which uses a pen/stylus to interact with the screen. The T371-W7-006 screen has a dual digitizer; a touchscreen that can use both a stylus and finger input on the screen. Both models come with an 84-key full-size spill-resistant antimicrobial keyboard and touch pad.
The tablet offers both wired and wireless communications through a Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 port or via the Centrino Advanced-N 6205 a/b/g/n wireless, and also offers Bluetooth 3.0. It includes 2x USB 2,0 and 1x USB 3.0 ports, IEEE 1394 4-pin connector, RJ-45 port, HDMI and VGA ports, Memory Stick/SD reader and a 34/54mm ExpressCard slot. It also has a port connector for a docking station (sold separately).
There is also a spare modular bay in the Lifebook T731 which can accept different components without significantly adding bulk or height to the unit. Modular components (sold separately) include a multi-format dual-layer DVD Writer, Blu-ray Disc Triple Writer, or bay spare battery.
Sound is supplied with Realtek ALC269 with HD audio, two built-in speakers, and two digital array microphones. The units ship with an integrated 2.0 MP webcam. The 6-cell Li-Ion battery is rated for almost 7 hours of battery time.
There are a host of options to keep your unit secure, including an embedded fingerprint sensor, TPM v.1.2, security panel, Computrace BIOS persistence module, hard drive and password protection and lock slot.
Mobility and Versatility
The Lifebook T731 Tablet PC was designed for project-based users in the field who require the speed and ease of forms-based input and pen-driven navigation, as well as for students or on-the-go professionals who need a mobile computer. With the optional dual digitizer, you can interact with your tablet PC by using your stylus or the lightest finger touch. By taking advantage of the bi-directional swivel hinge, you can easily convert from a standard notebook to a tablet by rotating the display (in either direction) and folding it flush with the keyboard. Use the inking capabilities to take notes, annotate files, or capture a signature, then convert your handwritten notes into text. You can then use the keyboard in standard notebook mode to incorporate your notes into a typewritten document.
Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) is a new technology that lets users enjoy and share PC content between an Intel Core processor-based notebook and their big screen TV. With Intel WiDi, you can use your big screen TV to view data and applications from your hard drive, home network, or the Internet. Although Intel WiDi is a wireless technology, it requires a third-party display adapter in order to be used. The display adapter is attached to the TV via HDMI (preferred) or composite A/V cables.
Fujitsu Shock Sensor Utility
In the event your hard disk drive experiences excessive vibration or shock, there is a possibility that the read-write head could come in contact with of the rotating platter, resulting in a "head crash." If this happens, data loss may occur. The Fujitsu Shock Sensor utility is a hard disk drive protection system designed to minimize the likelihood of such an event. Inside select Fujitsu notebooks and Tablet PCs there is an accelerometer that constantly senses for any sudden movement, including free falls, excessive vibration, or sudden impacts. Fujitsu Shock Sensor monitors movement from three axes: front-to-back, side-to-side, and up-and-down. The sensitivity can be adjusted by the user to accommodate different working environments. If a sudden movement is detected, the read-write head is quickly retracted to a safe zone, reducing the possibility of a head crash and the potential loss of data. This technology reduces the risk of your hard drive being damaged and your data being lost forever.
Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
The embedded TPM 1.2 protects digital identification and data, and authenticates you into your network. It also allows users to securely store private keys and certificates for file and folder encryption, Web, email, digital signature and passwords. TPM solutions can play a strong role in assuring compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to protect medical records, as well as Gramm-Leech-Bliley, Sarbanes-Oxley, and other regulations that impose privacy and security requirements.
Fujitsu offers a built-in biometric fingerprint swipe sensor that eliminates the need for managing multiple passwords when accessing the network and managing email accounts and other protected systems. With a simple swipe of the finger, you can quickly and safely log onto the protected system and online accounts without having to enter passwords.
The integrated modular bay on the Lifebook T731 Tablet PCs allow the user the flexibility of using an optical drive or a bay battery for all-day computing without increasing the system thickness or adding significant weight. The modular bay accepts: • Blu-ray Disk Triple Writer• Dual-layer Multi-format DVD Writer • Bay battery • Second hard drive
Anti-Microbial and Spill Resistant Keyboard
A computer keyboard can harbor an enormous number of potentially harmful bacteria. The anti-microbial keyboard used in select models of the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK contains an inorganic silver ion agent that attacks microbes and bacteria and inhibits their growth. The spill-resistant keyboard offers protection against damage caused by accidental spills. If a liquid is spilled on the keyboard, a protective membrane and collection tray help reduce the chance of internal components coming in contact with the liquid. This gives you more time to save your data and shut down the system.
Computrace BIOS-enabled models
An integrated Computrace BIOS tracking agent from Absolute Software embedded in the BIOS firmware is designed to provide theft recovery solutions with optional Computrace software. Employing Computrace software solutions allows organizations to efficiently monitor system use, recover stolen or missing machines, and remotely delete data, if necessary. Computrace software solutions also provides the added value of proactively enforcing computer data security policies across the entire organization, increasing both end-user and administrator productivity.
Ambient Light Sensor
Certain systems that are running the Windows 7 operating system have an ambient light sensor that automatically senses the light conditions in which the computer is operating. If the lighting is very bright, the brightness of the LCD will increase to make it easier to see the display. Conversely, if it is used in a darkened room, the display will automatically dim. It is a great feature for optimizing your power use, thereby extending the life of the battery. Note that the ambient light sensor is initially disabled when you start your system; it is enabled through the Location and Other Sensors section of the Control Panel.
