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. So, I have 10 boat anchors here in Baghdad until I can find the "multibay" Cd dvd unit that inserts into an empty drawer of the docking station.
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. You can write on the outside of the cover when it is closed. You use a stylus pen which pops out of its own little compartment when you gently press down on it.
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. The actually usefulness of voice recognization was a complete surprise. The biggest downside is it is still running Windows. So rebooting evey few days is to be expected.
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
Summary: I have been using the tablet for a month or so. It is a nicely designed machine, both as tablet as well as standard laptop (i.e., with keyboard). Wireless and bluetooth were surprisingly easy to configure (nice to access the web through bluetooth phone while on the road). The main flaw I can find is in the keyboard -- nice but very very delicate. I am already at the third one. Have to admit that HP tech support has been *excellent* in providing quick replacements.
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. All of them have their strong points, but what I like best about the Compaq is that it runs in silence. Except for the fan popping on every once in a while, you don't even know there's a computer behind the screen.
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. I just cannot understand paying so much for the iPad when I have a computer that does so much more.
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? One year later, I have purchased one and I love it. HP makes the lightest convertible tablet pc available. The Tablet PC is now reaching critical mass for usefulness.
