    Searching ink? That's Google's problem! Smiley

    Seriously, that's gonna be pretty tough. What we need to do is write text along with the .GIF for the search engines.

    Cool stuff.  I am in the market for a new Laptop and was thinking about the Tablet models.  However, I am worried about getting into a box with it.  I need VS and c#.  Will I run into SP issues or perf issues with a tablet, or is it just like XP with ink added?  Do you have to wait for special Ink Service packs or the standard XP ones will install.  Confused.  TIA!

    PS.  Anyone make a 17" tablet?

    XP Tablet Edition is a straight superset of XP, and standard XP service packs and patches work just fine. The only "Tablet-specific" service pack was released last year, and added a bunch of cool new usability features to the Tablet PC interface.

    For VS and C#, there are no Tablet-specific issues. I'd go for a beefy spec, just as I would for any laptop that I was going to do compilation on - lots of RAM (>= 512MB) and a fast hard drive (>= 5400 rpm). You can get both of those on a Tablet.

    I haven't heard of any of the major manufacturers making a 17" Tablet - anyone seen such a beast?

    Could you suggest some tablets Scoble? My laptop is about to die... so if I can get funding somewhere for a new laptop, I'd really like a tablet.

    Wow awesome. No forum has something similar - I need a tablet NOW!

    HAHA:
    You are not ink enabled!
    Please install the Tablet PC SDK (1.7) then come back and ink away!


    ...and ink away Big Smile

    I use the Toshiba M200 because it has the highest resolution screen.
