    Thanks Tiffany.

    There's a few surprises there...
    I'm surprised other Gateway's and the Fujitsu P1610 are not up there....

    ... and the Tosh M400 & Sony UX Micro is in the charts.

    I don't know Gautam, but we are headed in the right direction. Many of these new tablet releases are quite nice. They have the Santa Rosa processors and a good variety of features. Let's hope one day soon, we can configure pretty much anything we want.

    When someone manages to mod a cintiq digitiser into a killernotebook I guess.

    The ideal tablet for me would be a T4220-like machine that's about 0.5kg lighter, possibly has multitouch (in both sense of the word - finger+pen, and multi-point input), expresscard, better battery life and of course not to forget a dedicated graphics solution. I know it's asking for too much, but one can always hope ;-)

    Until you said the words "dedicated graphics solution" I was beginning to wonder there for a few seconds........

    Well, by the time a tablet like that appears perhaps integrated graphics will be good enough for gaming... ;-)

    The reason I was wondering was because it was as if you had seen some of my notes.

    Well, the dedicated graphics card isn't so much for gaming (my xbox is still good enough for that), but so I can push the limits of dual/triple-display with a matrox dual/triplehead2go, else I wouldn't really want it at all.
