LAPTOP Magazine – December 2005 – 3.5 out of 5 – There are a few kinks for Fujitsu to work out, but the LifeBook T4020D is your best and only bet if you want a thin-and-light Tablet notebook with a built-in optical drive. Itï¿½s expensive, but this convertible is unique and fast enough to justify the premium.
PC Magazine – December 2005 – 4 out of 5 (“Very Good”) – There are very few convertible notebooks out there that integrate an optical drive in such a small frame. The Fujitsu LifeBook T4020D manages to do so, making it a fine system for everyday computing.
– December 2005 – TheAge.com.au – Fujitsu’s experience in building tablet computers is evident in the T4020. It’s smaller and lighter than the Acer at less than 2kg despite having the same 31cm screen size. Usability is also excellent with controls such as the simple page up and down keys on the display edge making it easier to navigate a document.
ABC News/PC World – December 2005 – There are very few convertible notebooks out there that integrate an optical drive in such a small frame. The Fujitsu LifeBook T4020D manages to do so, making it a fine system for everyday computing.
