    Anybody know about this unit? Is it a real tablet pc or is it just a touch screen?

    And the screen doesn't fold down, so you can only "poke" at it. Shame; with a swivel hinge and a digitizer it would be pretty nice, a less rugged but more elegant alternative to the CF-18.

    I know this thread is inactive but with the new santa rosa model T7 it got interesting again. I have read about using the touchscreen in "book" mode, so also inking might be possible. This could be quite a good approach and maybe even better than a swiveling hinge which to some extend sacrifies stability and weight.

    I just don't get the appeal of this laptop. It has a touchscreen but everything about its specs pales in comparison to my Fujitsu T2010. Same weight, slower processor, no active digitizer, worse screen, lower resolution and it probably costs a lot more than the $1400 I paid for my convertible. It's a "tough" book but so what? The T2010 in the bump case is probably just as tough. An optical drive would have been its saving grace but I don't see it listed on its specs. I don't want to sound like I'm here to bash a product that certainly has some purpose, but this once cutting edge product seems outdated even by tablet standards.
