Question for readers...
I have a question for the readers of my blog:
For those of you who own a Tablet PC, is your Tablet PC your main computer or is it a secondary computer?
I still use the desktop for my main PC but the talet for any time I'm out and about or slobbing on the sofa ;)
I'm thinking I might re-purpose it as a media server or similar, just so it gets used once in a while.
When in the office, I control the LE1600 via RealVNC, so effectively run both machines simultaneously with different things on them (mainly Outlook and MindManager).
I'd like to hear you comments on the m200 vs x41 for a machine that would be about 80% notes and 20% Visual Studio development.
I also use an Apple iBook as I work in K-12 education and need to test and teach using both platforms. How I wish Apple would make a tablet!
I use the port replicator when in the office to connect to the network, and external USB backup drive, and an external keyborad and trackball. I used an external display for a while but have ended up using just the built-in display on the Gateway becasue it is so sharp andf easy to stare at all day long.
I do everything on this machine - web and graphics, Flash development, podcasting, and more standard office doc work.
You got some good blogging going on here and I wanted to respond to your question. For both Lynette and myself our TC1100's are our primary computers. They come with us everywhere (as most of you know. That is the beauty of it, one computer, one email programme wherever you go! We both have docking stations at work with flat panels and key board / mouse combos.
We do have a desktop in our office and we use it to
1. backup our TC1100 data (then back it up to a dvd from there)
2. process digital pictures
3. I sometimes do my day job on it by using our network to pull up files from tc1100 and make use of the bigger flatpanel (esp when working on mindmanager)work on it for work)
For those of you who use your tablet as your main computer, are you using extended desktop or just mirroring your tablet display? what issues (if any) are you experiencing?
