In this video review, what we are now officially calling ““ Hardware InkShows ““, I take a look at the TC1100 Tablet PC. Since its intoduction in November 2002, the TC1x00 has maintained an almost cult-like following due to its design and flexability. The TC1100 has also been a favorite in Hollywood, being featured alot on shows like 24 and Alias. It was a sad day in Tablet Land when HP announced that they were discontinuing the TC1100 in favor of producing ““me tooÃ¢â‚¬Â like designs in the TC4x00 series.
In this review, I take a tour of the tablet in keyboard and slate mode, the ports and buttons, the docking station, modular cd drive, protective cover, the built-in legs, the QuickLook utility and other software utilities.
The lighting in this video turned out better than my previous two videos, but I think Dennis and I are going to have to invest in some mini spot-lights to ensure the best lighting possible.
By the way, I found it really interesting when visiting HP’s site to read how they describe their Tablet PCs: The ultramobile PC that adapts to the way you work. Hmm..I don’t think I would describe the 12Ã¢â‚¬Â TC4400, the only Tablet PC they produce right now, as an ultramobile pc. They also use a thumbnail picture of the discontinued TC1100 to represent their Tablet PC line. Pretty ironic, huh?
