A Tablet computer is better than a laptop for several reasons. It’s the next generation of notebook computers.
- A Tablet PC / Tablet computer is the best mobile PC solution
The announcement of a new Apple Tablet is maybe the best solution for Apple computers as well. Tablet PC is compact and convertible which allows you to use your computer in places it would be awkward to use a laptop. You can even use it while standing up. With wireless Internet support, a Tablet PC is extremely convenient to use while being about town.
- Write notes rather than type
You can interact with people sitting across from you while writing notes, rather than having a computer screen between you. It’s great because you can use technology and still have that personal interaction with others.
- Taking notes — easier in meetings or classrooms
Tablet PCs are especially great for students, or in a classroom situation. They are also great in meetings. You can quickly write notes — and then organize and search your notes later. You can even include audio files or presentations with your notes.
- A Tablet PC is more personal
Write emails using your own handwriting. Send messages to friends and family (even those without a Tablet PC.) It brings back the personalized touch of handwritten cards, rather than the impersonal feel of regular emails. Your family will love it.
- Make comments easily
Tablet PCs make it easy to make comments (like sticky notes, and highlighters). Personalize what you are reading. Make notes in margins. Draw right on the screen while making presentations.
- Convert handwriting to text
Once you have your handwritten notes — your Tablet computer can easily convert those notes into typed text.
- Search handwritten text
You can also search your own handwritten notes. This is the coolest feature. You will be the envy of your friends once you show them how you can write their names and then find it just by searching your notes.
- Windows XP Tablet PC Edition
Windows XP has a version just for Tablet PCs — with some additions. Get all of the security and features of Windows XP — and carry it with you on your Tablet PC. The new Apple tablet will likely have customized functionality specific to the new platform.
- Tablet computer software
The cool thing about a Tablet is you get the cutting edge technology of the latest software. There are hundreds of third-party software applications for the Tablet.
- Multi-Language Capability
The Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 comes in 20 languages. No specific announcements on the Apple Tablet but based on past performance from Apple, we are certain to see multi-language capability.
