The TC1000 is good for the price, but pay a little more and get a TC1100.

  • 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 edgypyro@gmail.com. Thanks!

The Best of a Dying Generation

Meshek, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Introduction ------------ Tablet PCs where officially launched on November 7th 2002 with a Keynote speech made by Bill gates in New York. The basic principle was to combine a laptop and graphics tablet, so that it is in effect possible to draw or write notes directly to the screen. Despite the initial good press and hype surrounding it however sales of these devices were sluggish and are only now beginning to pick up.
  • Pros: Tablet PC, Light, Quite Good Battery Life
  • Cons: Hinge Fairly Weak, Second Generation Tablets Available

Compaq Tablet Pros And Cons

Cloud_cir..., Ciao
1 April 2003
  • Excerpt: I have been using a Compaq Tablet for the last four weeks for my work. My first impression was "wow", then it was, ok and how do I use it? The PC features handwriting and speech to text, use in portrait or landscape mode and a digital pen to write with. It comes with XP Pro Tablet and uses Office XP with a tablet add on. You can also remove the keyboard from the unit completely and use it solely in 'pen' mode. It has inbuilt network and modem ports.
  • Pros: Very portable
  • Cons: Slower than your average new laptop
