    I'm sure everyone here is familiar with the HP TC4200 Convertible Tablet. As you all know, when a tablet convertible comes out, the discussion and review emphasis is placed on its abilities as a tablet. But what about its evil (or not so evil) twin, the notebook portion? Does anyone know anything about its utilization as a thin-and-light/performance notebook?

    Astro, in the TC4200 review, I went into great detail about the performance, hardware features, keyboard, mouse buttons, stick navigation and screen visiblility which apply to the model as a laptop as well as a tablet.

    Please if you have any additional questions about this model don't hesitate to let me know! I am more than happy to provide further info. :)

    I remember reading that the TC4200 does come with a 3 year warranty, however, do you think the comp would endure four years of college?

    There's little reason to think it won't, physically anyway. If you're wanting to run Windows 2007 and Office 2010, you might have problems, it's a little hard to see into that crystal ball though.

    Yeah, physically the TC4200 is very well-built. Unless you drop it down a flight of stairs, I think it will last. ;)

    How is the tablet writing experience with the TC4200? Does it feel natural, or require a lot of adjustment?

    Astro,

    The TC4200 has a nice coating on the top layer of the screen that allows for good traction with the pen without compromising visibility. I personally found the writing experience to be above par on that model. Sorry about the late response, I took a half day off for my birthday. :)

    A half-day is perfectly acceptable. BUT NO MORE! ;)

    Happy Birthday!
