    Sure you can play games on a Tablet PC. Here is one from Microsoft called "Inkball" that was created just for the Tablet: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/tabletpc/evaluation/overviews/pctools.asp#inkball
    You are sure to see many more emerging as the Tablet continues to gain in popularity. Also remember that many Tablet PC's are "convertible" models, which means that they will allow games to play just as well as any common notebook.

    Sure, you can game just fine. It's the same hardware that goes into a notebook, just with a touchscreen and software enhancements. Sure, the lower-speed PM processors won't be able to keep up with hard core games, but for those Tablets with a keyboard and external mouse, the experience should be little different from a notebook or PC for that matter.

    It is important to note that MSFT is giving away a lot of goodies to help push Tablet, like this example indicates. They'll also be releasing the major OS update, 2004, for free. I'm glad to see this, it helps reduce the pain for early adopters.
