Review: Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300 mobile scanner

With a small but steadily growing population of the computing force being Mac users, it’s nice to see Fujitsu thinking of us by offering a serious mobile scanning hardware solution. The Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300 is just under $300, and will appeal not only by Mac users, but any mobile professional serious about document processing. The S1300 is silver and gray. It folds down nicely in to a compact 11.18 x 3.90 x 3.03 inches and weighs in at 3.08 lbs. It’s a little bit thick at 3.03-inches, but will fit in to larger laptop bags, perhaps even a large briefcase. I think it could have been a bit thinner, but Fujitsu did a good job of keeping it looking sleek.
