    After looking at the tx2500, I've decided it's entirely worth the extra $280 I'll have to save to get it, even though the cx2756 does have Wacom.

    be warned the tx2500's run warmer and you might want to consider a fresh install to maximize performance.

    If you are going to pay $800 you should get a 2710p.

    Why should I go with the 2710p? It's slightly cheaper and has a clearer screen, but it is older, less powerful, and doesn't have a touchpad or optical drive, as well as a few other things that are less important to me. I think slowness and not having a touchpad would annoy me more than having a less than perfect screen.

    You might want to look into it further, from what i can tell from these forums the 2710p is more reliable performance wise than the TX2500z, and certainly superior in build quality.

    Touchpad, i guess that would be annoying..

    less heat generated, longer battery life...

    After researching both those tablets I decided that neither was what I wanted, the tx2500 has far too many problems, and the 2710p is just missing too much.

    I've decided that my final decision is between the Fujitsu T4220 and the T5010. I can afford either of them now, but the T5010 is at least $200 more, and I'm not sure if it's worth the price. Do you think it's worth paying extra to get the T5010?
