This statement from the author, Mark Kellner, concerns me though:
I’m not sure how many applications there are that can take advantage of all the pen-input capabilities a Tablet PC should offer, and I’m still a little uncertain as to whether it’s worth the hassle.
Mark – shoot us an email or come visit us at GottaBeMobile.com and we would be happy to fill you in on tablet pc feature support. In addition, you can take a look at all of our software video reviews that showcase tablet pc software in action. I think you’ll find that the pen is definitely worth the hassle!
From the WashingtonTimes:
Spend about $2,000 for a notebook computer and you should expect some things.
One of the interesting surprises of the Lenovo ThinkPad X60 is what comes with it: 1 gigabyte of RAM, a 120 GB hard disk drive and the tablet display, which is activated with a pen-stylus device. All this in a package that weighs less than 4 pounds and has five hours of battery life — enough for a flight across the continent.
Now, that might not seem like an incredible value, but remember, there’s still an IBM logo on this thing. You are paying for image, style and cachet. Not to mention some pretty cool engineering.
