Hi folks, was looking at these things lately. A tablet form of the PC is a great idea if you need to pack something like that around. Unfortunately the designers keep Shooting Themselves in the Foot. A big weekness with Laptops was the "Hinge" which breaks more likely sooner than later. Rather than eliminating the "Hinge" the Tablet makers have made it even a "Bigger Nightmare".....

All a Tablet really needs is some kind of slide on/off hard cover like a pocket calculator has. The rest of it could be only one part.....When was the last time your pocket calculator quit working/fell apart???? :) :D :rolleyes:

That is a good idea, thouse sliders did get loose after awhile...but it took some serious use.
Thou, tablets are still problamatic...they NEED solid state data HDs to go anywhere..additionaly they should have a front lad mini or full size cd rom...without thse they will fail worse then the FX5800 ultra
hahah :)

Well Tablets have at least 1 USB port so you can easily add an external Hard Disk or CD ROM when needed. Can use the new Keychain Flash RAM modules for storage as well... :) :rolleyes:

They are like oversized PocketPC's that run Windows XP not Windows Mobile 200(1,2,3)
