I’ve been pretty vocal in the past about PC Magazines consistent lack of tablet pc coverage, so I was quite pleased to see PC Magazine’s Michael J. Miller write about Toshiba’s M400 Tablet PC on his blog today.
Overall, he gives the M400 a good thumbs up, although he still prefers Lenovo’s X41.
For the past week, I’ve been trying out the new Toshiba Portege M400 convertible, Toshiba’s first small tablet upgrade in a long time.
I’m a big fan of both small notebooks and tablet computers. I like my laptops light, because I’m a train commuter, and carry my laptop a lot. And I like tablet computers mostly because I like reading on them (with the screen in a vertical position), and for occasionally annotating notes and documents with the pen. Thus far, tablets have been mostly successful in vertical markets, such health care and insurance, where form-filling is very important, but lately they seem to be getting some traction in education as well.
