Im doing most of my Tablet PC shopping (or any shopping for that matter) online. Mostly because the local electronics warehouse stores dont carry the tablets Im interested in, but also because who wants to go through the hassle of the crowds and less than knowledgeable sales people. That said, I found an older Toshiba R15 and Gateway (not sure which one) at Best Buy. The sales boys didnt know specifics about them but assured me that they were very cool. Now to the point. For whatever reason they were in different sections of the computer department, so it wasnt side by side comparison, but the Gateway just felt better, more solid. I noticed when I opened or adjusted the screens, the Toshiba wiggled and rocked a bit before stopping, where the Gateway just stayed. Also, the screen lock on the Toshiba seemed loose to me. The Gateway just felt better built. My question for you is: how much should that matter? On top of that, given the nature of the tablet pc, should I even consider a model I cant handle first? Thoughts?
