I'm going to college in the fall and im having some debate between laptops. First Issue is: Laptop PC versus Tablet PC: -I like the fact that you can write onthe screen (beats using paper notebooks and have my notes saved automatically) -I like that it can be used to view movies more easily. -But mostly because of the fact that i'll be taking serious notes and I need the simplicity of having a tablet feature. I was eyeing HP's Pavilion TX1000 http://labnol.blogspot.com/2007/04/hp-pavilion-tx1000-convertible-tablet.html Around $1200 I need good advice on tablets. I've read lots of reviews and its a break down the middle. Second Issue: I found an unbeatable deal on tigerdirect on a laptop : http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3119152&CatId=1897 around $800 with extended warranty. This is an amazing laptop. a friend of mine who's going to college also just got his for graduation and it's stunning. 2GB of ram w/ 160 GB HDD and it comes with XP media center (not vista, hooray) For that price it's awesome I'm definately eying it. I need some more input on tablets vs. this. Tech experts help me out! i'm torn!
