    For a long time I browsed this site then I stopped when I bought my e1705 notebook, so I used notebookreview.com more frequently, I recently came back to these forums and was like Where the hells Discussion? Oh its tablet pc forums. A little confusing for sister sites that also seem to seamlessly link between one another. Why not make notebookreview.com and tabletpcreview.com uniform by calling them both discussion or both notebook/tablet pc forums? (notebook forums for one, tablet pc forums for the other)

    Hi, I'm a member at NBR as well, they recently changed to Discussion to invite more newbies in(some don't know what forums are).
    It might be a good idea to change Tablet PC Review's to Discussion, to be more uniform and more newbie friendly.

    As far as I can see the only significant difference is in the grey navigation bar text, "Tablet PC Forums" vs "Discussions". I don't know if that falls under admin purview (i.e. whether we can change that), but I'll let the admins know.

    "Discussions" confuses an old timer like myself. I prefer "forums". That said, I've been here long enough that as long as the link is still in the same place, I'll probably click it many times before I notice a change.

    I personally prefer the "forums" label too since I know what they are; "discussions" makes it seem more like a comment-enabled blog post. But in any case, Tiffany says the site might be undergoing a makeover (as can be seen from the Digital Camera Review and PDA Review sites), so it might be renamed then.

    Thirded for forums. I get the opposite effect as mas5acre: on the odd occasion I go to NBR I spend a second looking about for "forums" and then finally remember that they don't call it that over there.

    Whatever floats your boat I guess. We'll see what Tiffany does with the makeover then.
