    I am in real estate and want to be able to pull up contracts and have my customers sign them on the tablet. From there I will email or print them out. Has anyone had any experience with this and what tablet would you recommend?

    Is the HP or the Toshiba a better product?

    I think the tc4200 is the best value and is a good fit for you given the need to be thin and light. The X41t is probably not worth the additional cost for the way you're going to use it.

    I am in real estate too and waiting for the IBM x41 review, which I thought might be out today. I am concerned that the hard drive on the IBM is only 4200 RPM and the chip speed isn't blazing fast and what that will do to performance.

    I think I am on the fence between HP and the IBM but really want to see that review.

    The IBM X41 is no champ in speed. If a balance of performance and portability is what you seek, the HP is the best bet. If you are looking for an extremely lightweight and thin model, the IBM X41 is a great choice, but does compromise performance to accomodate the small size.

    I was going to try the HP but then found out it did not have internal CD. I'm leaning towards the Toshiba now.

    Have you looked into using the tablet for real estate contracts so they can be signed on the tablet and emailed away?

    Would be appreciated if you have more info about using tablet in RE.

    What do you think of the Toshiba T-15. I'm shying away from the HP due to no internal CD.

    I honestly would go with the Toshiba M200 since it is much more compact. The R15 or Tecra M4 are just to heavy to carry around in your type of work (in my opinion). Regarding your handwriting, E-signatures and digital ink needs as a Real Estate agent, check out this company's website:

    I believe that they also resell Toshiba's as a package deal with their sofware.
