"Cool, make the switch"4.0 starson
Summary: I love the Tablet PC. I was a die hard laptop user and thought this was a good next move. The Compaq TC1000 has been very good. Great battery life and I like being able to snap everything together or apart. Forget the docking station and opt for a USB 2.0 device instead. Most of comments are around the software and not the tablet itself. I replaced the WI-FI with a combo A-B-G card and added Bluetooth. If they can only get a wireless power cord, I would be set. Office 2003 is going to be a must for any Tablet PC owner. I am glad I waited for this version of Office to make the switch to a pen. I can understand if people have a lackluster experience without Office 2003 or other ink enabled applications. Web surfing with a pen just sucks. I would rather have a scheduled recognition to keep writing and not do any recognition in real time. I added the max memory and shut down the virtual memory. I tweaked XP just like I would on a desktop and it added lots of speed. XP is bloated pig for speed and you have to tune it for performance. No change with that problem for this device. I switched from a desktop, laptop, and pda and will never go back. I will only crave more WiFi G and A connections to move everything around faster.
