Summary: The TC1000 looks identical to the TC1100, with similar specs. But they are very different in performance. It's Crusoe versus Intel, and Intel wins big. I have two TC1100 and one TC1000, and I love them all. If you decide to get the TC1000, here's a few tips. Upgrade the HDD! The TC1000 is a bit sluggish with a 4200 RPM drive, but works nicely with a 5400+ RPM drive. The RAM can be maxed to 1GB, but it's not easy.
Excerpt: It is a good product, but very slow with windows XP, the battery lasts only one hour at best, so I am using it now with Linux and its running faster, but it now has no pen function, if anyone finds the function(in Linux)tell me at email@example.com. Thanks!
