Hi everybody, I'm new on the forum, but I've been reading Tom's for quite a while now.
What brings me to my topic: tablet pc.
I saw 1 guys using this kind of laptop at school and wish I could have one too. So here it goes, I wanna buy a new tablet pc and I'd like to get any feedback on makes, models people here prefer. I already read some threads about that topic.
1_ budget max 2000$
2_ In tablet pc, as far as I know, there're all coming in 12 to 15" flavor. So I'd say 13-15 would be good.
3_ Resolution: I don't want HD, it's useless, so any descent one around 1250 or 1440.
4_ I need if to be portable, I have a really good gaming desktop at home, but I'd like to use my laptop at school and in the train.
5_ Battery: that's a big point for me, I'd like to have 3-4 hours + and even more if it's possible. I don't mind paying the price for a good battery life.
6_7 As I said before, I don't want to play any game on my laptop. I might, but if I can't that's not a problem. As long as I can run vista correctly or windows 7 if it is less power hungry... I might watch a movie once in a while, but again, that's not a big criteria. I'll surely play with some photo and otherwise, use the tablet for office type of work and web.
8_ Don't need too much HDD, I have enough in my desktop, so 80-160go would be more than enough
9_ one bug issue that I'm also concerned about is heat dissipation. I understand that in laptop there has to be some heat going out in some way, but I'd rather get a laptop running cool and with good ventilation spot, not under or toward me.
10_ Finally, I know there's some tablet pc capable of detecting both, fingers and pen. Is that good ? working great ? any problems or issues with that ? For sure, I'd like to get a nice screen, since with a tablet pc that's what it's all about.
thanks for any suggestions or comments.
Also I'm canadian, so if you wanna post prices, that could be cool if they'd be in CAN $, but US is all good.
