Hard to swallow - Upgrade - Reviews - Technology - smh.com.au
A good, “call it as you see it” report on the tablet PC, using Toshiba's R10 as an example.
Many new technologies are so heavily hyped that when they finally hit the shelves we cannot help being disappointed. The Windows-based tablet PC rode high on the hype wave and was dumped hard when the first under-powered and over-priced models hit Australia more than two years ago. Since then, Microsoft has polished the tablet PC operating system and manufacturers such as Toshiba have improved the balance between price and performance.
But tablet PCs are yet to redeem themselves in the eyes of users and Toshiba's Satellite R10 is a good example of why.
