    I fell in love with a Windroid tablet I bought off eBay for real cheap ($100). Hardly use my laptop anymore except on Fridays when I download stuff (don't want to destroy the write cycles of my tablet's eMMC drive.

    Just for the record, I own 2 Fujitsu laptops that I plan on running on Fridays for the next decade or two. But I fell out of love with Japanese brand electronics after my made-in-Japan USB enclosure that was very expensive ($75 just for the enclosure bought from Japan online not the hard drive) went kaput in a very short amount of time. The reason was it's one cable that handled both data and power leading to a high failure rate. You'd think the engineers would have thought to split 'em power and data separate for such an expensive product! Found a Chinese "adapter" (actually the whole enclosure electronics minus the HDD casing) that did just that for $3 on eBay. I'd wager since power and data travel on separate cables on it, it could last pretty much forever!

    Nobody buys PCs/laptops anymore when a tablet could do the same. Also above why I'm tending to avoid Japanese brands these days. They will charge you an arm and a leg for a product that fails sooner than those cheap Chinese eBay counterparts. My current favorite brand of computer electronics would have to be Huawei going forward, no longer Fujitsu. In China Huawei is now the top dog at #1. Apple has even fallen below #5 th place in the Chinese market share. Times are a changing. This century belongs to China, which is a good thing since Chinese products are cheaper than Japanese and in certain cases like ext USB enclosures for my laptop the Chinese ones are better engineered to last longer.

    Also you just have to take a look at the incredible stuff China is doing like grand-majestic artificial islands and even a new 5th gen stealth fighter. Also top two fastest supercomputers in the world currently are Chinese. Also says a lot about the kinds of stuff (consumer products) I'm seeing emerging from China...

    Notebookcheck has now reviewed a Fujitsu Celsius H760 configuration (E3-1505Mv5 CPU 16GB, M2000M GPU 4GB, SM951 PCIe SSD 512GB, ST1000LM HDD 1TB, LGD046F IPS FHD).
    No throttling while plugged into external power, though it throttles on battery to protect the battery from high current draw (tested without the second modular bay battery). The tested FHD screen was reported to have some screen-door effect (lines between pixels) and off target sRGB color space, so try the UHD screen if you need accurate colors.

    Keyboard layout for editing keys looks reasonable: Dedicated home/end keys for text line editing and spreadsheet row navigation are above numberpad. A convenient Tab key is added to the numberpad for navigating spreadsheets and forms. For touch typists with fingers over the home keys, both Alt keys are easily reachable by thumb, and Ctrl keys are reachable by pinky fingers. One issue is the Delete key is not on corner above backspace, moved one key left. (Is the pause key on the corner used frequently in some application? Or is Delete moved left to be away from the Home key?) Hopefully these keys can be easily remapped to put Delete on the corner to give it more space and make it a faster target (Fitts' Law).

    Seems that also in older workstations pause button is in top right corner. Including nordic layout so it's not a german thing.
