Hey Everyone! I recently decided to buy myself a tablet pc, now however I am in quite a pickle as to which to choose. My search through the wicked ways of the web led me to this site, which gave me some of the first decent information on the whole bloody thing. The contestants so far: Wait... no... let me tell you all a bit about what I'm going to use it for first. I''ll mainly be taking notes and doing some math. I need to be able to run programs like MatLab (with mable support), Mathcad, photoshop and similar stuff, so I need a bit of power from that CPU. I draw a bit, so it would be nice if it could be used for that as well, though I hardly expect it to outperform my Wacom Intous 3. Graphics are not that much of an issue, since my stationary machine should be able to handle this quite well without any outside aid. It would however be nice to run Vista with alle it's niftyness, but you can't have everything. On of my greatest concerns is the batterytime, it -must- be able to survive 2 hours of notetaking and 4 would be the best. The Toshiba Tecra M7-115: This one has the slowest CPU of them all, but it actually has a graphics card which obviously is a bonus. I'm wondering if the screen is too big for it to be good for notes though..... The Toshiba Portegé M400-105: This is NOT the version with an XGA screen, but rather the 1400 x 1050 version, which probably makes this the most likely candidate for the notes. The complete lack of anything even resembling a graphics card is ofcourse a minus, and it doesn't have quite as much juice as the TC4400... The HP TC4400: JUICE! We're talking the core duo 2 here, easily outperforming the two others (and probably my Athlon X2 4200 as well). The graphics are not much better than the M400, and the resolution is quite low, but I have no idea if that will be a problem or not. Also it seems neigh impossible to get any battery lifetime info on this baby. The unknown: There might be a fourth, completely unknown contestant that I had no idea would suit my needs. I wouldn't know, since I (as I just specified) had no idea it would suit my needs. So... any advice? If this is in any way a help I'm studying physics (Why would that help you ask? Well, one of these things might have "wave/particle duality protection" or something....). Ohh, and.... glad to be here! Also, all of these cost around 2000$/1000£, so if any of you happen to know a cheap european store..... (Why not american you ask? Well by the time it's been sent over the big sea and gotten through the hands of Evil Customs Officers (tm) any savings would be lost).
