Desperately trying to extend the life of my hot-rodded T901 do-all workstation; seeing nothing comparable for sale (× forever) Oct 23, 2017

    Digitiser/stylus-user since ~1994 (various, need to dig); brief foray into Graffiti/EdgeWrite via PalmPilot Personal (2.05), Palm Ⅲxe (3.x) and Palm Ⅶx; (3.5); lusting after high-end Sony CLIÉ and late Compaq PPCs; desktop cordless Wacoms Graphire 3 (4×5"), Intuos2 Plat. (6×8"); 3 or 4 stylus-compatible, mostly WinMo telephones I've mostly forgotten up to the HTC Fortress (ST7377), Samsung Epix (SGH-i907), Galaxy Note (SGH-i717), and Galaxy Note 3 (SM-900A); Tablet PCs from Toshiba, starting with the M205 and M4**,
    capping with a hot-rodded Fujitsu T901 (i7-2640M (2.8-3.5GHz, 2-core/4-thr, 4MB L3, 35-44W) ) on QM67 (Cougar Point) [B3], w/ NVS-4200M, 16GB (2×8) G.Skill PC3-10666 [1333MHz, CL9-9-9-24 @ 1.5V], SanDisk SDSSDXP-480G, painstakingly-tweaked Win7 Pro x64, ᴛᴏᴜᴄʜʟᴇss Wacom active-digitiser), FOR WHICH THERE IS STILL NO COMPREHENSIVE EQUIVALENT, GODDAMNIT and my next move is probably going to have to be ~$3,200 for a makeshift, onboard-graphics, touchscreen-contaminated, "thin-and-light"-thermally-fistfucked-design T937 with sodding AES pen, or invest between 2.6–4 times as much in both a workstation-grade "desktop-replacement" laptop as well as a Cintiq Pro/MobileStudio Pro.
    Needless to say, I'm at my wits' end hoping to keep this machine running as long as possible (HSF replacement, re-TIMming next month) and hoping against the sad state of the market that someone steps in with a proper high-end, bulky, heavy, wonderfully-capable convertible.
    (go ahead and laugh!)
