Jade Ohlhauser, the Jaded Developer, revealed why he wouldn’t be buying a Tablet PC. I have been pretty keen on a Tablet PC for myself in some future life although, having read Jade’s post, I am reconsidering. Jade mentions factors such as price and performance as reasons why he ultimately bought himself a laptop rather than a Tablet PC.
Kathy Sierra discovered the potential of Tablet PCs in the context of mind maps and there is really little doubt that you can do things on a Tablet PC you just can’t do on a laptop. If only the silly things weren’t so expensive and underpowered compared to their more fixed cousins. Of course, this whole discussion is a little pointless because I don’t have the money for a new computer, whether it be a laptop or Tablet PC and if I did have cash to burn, I’d probably go for a Powerbook anyway!
