Summary: Wanted a tablet pc that I could use for work and wanted an ipad just because. Got a used hp tc1100 for about $130 and it is great! Because it is older it may not have the best specs but if you can upgrade to 1.5GB of memory, it works good for surfing the web. I also use it foe Netflix.
Summary: I just purchased one of these right here at Amazon. First surprise? No charger. Second surprise? The "Upgraded software" cannot be updated, i.e. PIRATED. Third surprise? The "Upgraded software" was too advanced for the unit, and knocked out most of the drivers.
Summary: I purchased my unit at [...] but I bought the 1GB RAM card, an extra battery, and a 160GB hard drive from Amazon. I also got Windows 7 Home Premium through a student discount. The total for my upgrade and unit was just under $500.00. This is an actual slate netbook.
Summary: I have used the tc1100 for a while. It is a nice tablet. Using in tablet mode the unit gets warm under your palm. Hand holding id very difficult without blocking the vents that dissipate the heat.The small keyboard is lousy
Has eliminated legal pads for my consulting company!!!

Summary: For all the people NOT using tablet pc's, I got to tell you that the HW and SW works great as a place to write extensive handwritten notes with searchable key words and dates. This is also a great basic windows xp machine with some of the best laptop speakers I have heard.
Summary: I am in the US Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq and we ordered 10 of these tablets to use for an anti-corruption agency in the Iraqi government. I also ordered the rather expensive docking stations, BUT DID NOT THINK TO read the fine print in the online ordering system that said there was NO CD OR DVD unit.
Summary: The last time I tried the tablet PC, I almost bought one. As an early adopter, I really like the idea, but I just couldn't justify the expense. I spent some time with it and it was definitely neat concept. Unfortunately, I couldn't justify the cost. Why not just scan you handwritten notes in?
Summary: I have been using pen-based input since Windows 3.11 for Pen Computing, mostly to avoid wracking my hands, wrists, and fingers with typing. I have also used a variety of the latest generation of tablets.
Summary: The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because one part was broken (which the seller described when I purchased it). Other than that, this is the best computer ever. And when I took it to school with me, others (who had purchased more expensive laptops) were going ga-ga over it.
