    I'm trying to buy a tablet PC from the MPC website, and these two look pretty much the same to me. I know the E-295C is essentially the same as the C-140X. Specifics-wise, the S-7235C looks pretty much the same (ie T7700 processor, ATI Mobility Radeon X2300 graphics card), but it costs $400 less maxed out.

    So are they the same?

    Thanks in advance!

    They are the same, but labeled differently for the different sectors. We alway suggest you compare pricing across the models to get the best deal

    The E-295C is the business model. It comes with the Trusted Platform Module security chip installed. I'm not positive, but the BIOS may also be different to provide the security start-up supported by the TPM.

    The C-140 does not have TPM. I don't know about the S-7235C - but it may not have the security hardware/firmware.

    What is this TPM, and do I really need it? I mostly plan on using it for taking notes and playing games.

    Also, I did a side-by-side comparison of maxed out configurations, and the price difference actually came out to be about $300. Part of the increased cost (about $170) is because they force you to take the 3 year Notebook Value Service Plan with the E-295C. Even if you downgrade to the 1 year plan, they don't reduce the cost.

    the business has some more security features and the hard drive is better protected in a fall.

    Overall, the differenes are minor, and the basics are the same.

    if you get the ATI card, you will need the 90watt.

    And are you clumsy?
