    This is a sample of the proposal I'll be sending to Tiffany. Please do take a look, and reply if you have any input. And also please vote in the poll so we can get an idea of the general level of interest in such a forum; no point pushing for it if there's only a bunch of us who wants it :p

    I know one things I'd like discuss is how we proselyte tablet's to our peers. Teachers and students are always telling me how awesome they think my computer is. I try to tell them why they should buy a tablet, especially why they should buy a tablet instead of a regular laptop, but at least one person bought a laptop. It's kind of hard to be an effective ambassador for tabletpc's when I don't have a place to discuss tactics with my tablet using peers.

    I look forward to seeing more on this idea.

    I first came to this forum when I was researching my Gateway C-140X, as such most of my time here was spent on the What Tablet PC Should I Buy? and the Gateway boards, with the occasional side trip to Hardware and Software. After my purchase, I stayed almost exclusively in the Gateway board. Given all the lively talk and the sense of shared discovery that going on as a result of the influx of new users brought by the C-140X, the topics at the time were hardly limited to a specific brand of PC. I always had the feeling that I was missing out on all the similar "general interest" topics that must be hidden in the other brands' boards, but I did not have the time to hunt around for them. I remember wishing at the time that there was a place where that kind of talk could take place and not get buried by technical questions and complaints about shipping delays and the like.

    I will be putting this to use. Soon this forum will be up and running and articles will be moved to it. As you can tell from our other sites we are undergoing site redesign and Tablet will be changing a little soon, like DigitalCameraReview or Brighthand.

    New design is here. I wonder if this forum is close behind.

    I see the new design, but I don't see a General forum.
