Tablet Slate

I am a really big fan of the Tablet PC slate format,  its so quick and easy to pop it into my rucksack and drag it out again a in a meeting, in a cafe, on the beach, by the pool etc.  In these environments I don’t want to be typing away, I just tend to read, listen, watch and review/take notes so the slate format is perfect.  Of course I am lucky that when I get back home I have a high powered desktop for my writing work, and have a dock for the Tablet.  This hybrid situation works very well.  I was promoted to write these words of support after seeing this post – also in support of slate mode – on the Student tablet PC blog.

    Hi Steve I too am a fan of the Tablet format. I have a Toshiba – so still clinging on to the keyboard! I use it in conjunction with a more powerful desk based laptop. The Tablet is great for meetings and generally taking notes and annotating documents. I like the idea of the slates, just don’t know if I could go “cold turkey” and do away with the keyboard! For that reason I like the idea of the TC 1000 and 1100 which of course they have not stopped making. However with its detachable keyboard it seemed liked a good “half-way” house!
