    Although i prefer a convertible, the LE1700 was the only choise for me right now, for the case, if my 1400×1050 12″ Toshiba Portege M200 would get too slow or get lost or broken. Its gone now, and it was problematic in europe to get one anyway.

    Looking for future replacements,i almost thought of axiotron modbook.
    Heading to the website i see the 15.4″ version coming January 2010, and it has an wxga display, which in reality is probably 1440×900 as the original macbook pro.
    It costs alot and for a 15″ thats not a high resolution.

    But as i understand it will have pen and touch input, maybe the new wacom technology, since they use wacom panels in their products now.

    Maybe in year 2013 they make a 17″ 1080p tablet.
    Or if you pay a million they do it today.

    Must i say, i’m dissapointed in today’s tablet-pc trends!
    Must i say, i’m frustrated!

    So if any manufacturer is reading this, please make a ultra-thin convertible tablet-pc with a 13″ to 14″ multitouch&wacompen screen at the resolution from 1440×1050 to 1600×1200.
    Maybe, just maybe i could live with a wide-screen too.
    Thank you.
    (Seems like one has to make his own tablet-pc company)

    Ah, its gone now was ment for the LE1700. And my use case, if anyone is interested, is drawing directly on the screen, plus everyday websurfing too. Thats why i like convertible tablets.
