    I'm running Vista Build 5384 on my tc4400 (RA301AT), and it reports as Vista compatible on Microsoft's Vista Advisor. It gets a 1 rating overall, however, likely due to the crap shared Intel 950 graphics.

    As for why the tc4400 over the m400, well, here in Canada the tc4400 retails for $1899, and the m400 is $2699... way out of proportion to prices stateside, otherwise I would have picked up the m400. With the money I saved, I picked up an extra 512MB RAM and an external DVD burner. The RAM is especially worth it if you are going the Vista route. As well, be aware that Vista does not retain a lot of the functionality of Tablet XP; I have lost the fingerprint reader, Q Menu, display control, etc., but the handwriting recognition is a hell of a lot better.

    Does anyone know if this is an a brick and morter yet so I can try it out? - I am a lefty and need to make sure the product is still ergonomic.

    HP.ca policy is 30 day return with no restocking fee (unless stuff is missing).
    They supposedly send returns out as refurbs (who knows for sure tho), great buy if you can find one.
