    Hi, I’m thinking about buying a tablet pc but most of the ones I have seen so far have a low res (1024x768)

    Does anybody have a list of all the tablets that cab flip into laptops that have a resolution above 1024x768?

    Thanks

    I think the toshiba laptops can go to 1400 x 1050... I remember the m200 could and the M4 could've as well. Those're the older ones though, but I'd guess the newer ones should be able to as well?

    Most should be able to have higher resolutions then 1024x768, just look for the option SXGA and (WXGA which widescreen). But with a 12 inch tablet 1024x768 should probally be enough. The new Toshiba's normally have XGA or WXGA.

    I was about two seconds away from ordering the 4210 on the VT website when i decided to go test a PDF on a 12inch screen.

    So i just tested out a 12 inch with XGA resolution and scholarly PDFs are unreadable without squinting on fullscreen mode (in portrait mode)...yeah so i guess im not getting a 12 inch tablet, the text is blurry and all around unacceptable (this is even with cleartype in acrobat on). Since one of the main reasons I wanted to get a tablet was to annotate PDFs in portrait mode im afraid that this is only good for papers with larger fonts, which for the most part are not conference proceedings and scholarly papers.

    someone let me know when they have 14 inch thin and light tablets.

    just a FYI

    anyone know how to zoom in on fullscreen mode in adobe??

    There is only one 12" tablet with an SXGA screen and that's the toshiba M400. The only other alternative is to get a greater than 12" tablet.

    ok im going to give it a shot be right back! ok i think i love you.

    So question, if I wanted to annotate this said pdf...how would i do so? Could I do it right out of acrobat or would I import it into onenote?

    All of the sudden I am excited about maybe getting a tablet PC again.

    Under Full Page view of PDF files you can also use either the left/right trackpad keys to move up/down a page as well.

    If you have Adobe Acrobat and not Adobe Reader then you can. But if you don't then you either need to import it to Journal or OneNote to comment on it or to get another program that will allow you to comment directly to a PDF file.
