Marc's editorial note: Ryan is a new Weblogs, Inc. blogger writing for the growing team at The Unofficial Microsoft Weblog. Occasionally, he's posting to The Tablet PCs Weblog and The Office Weblog as well. I think all my talk about how great the Tablet PC is has inspired him to seriously think abut taking the plunge into pen-based computing. Help the guy out and give him a recommendation.
So, forgive me, but I still don't own a Tablet PC. I think they are an awesome idea, and I would love to get one. I am thinking about getting one soon, but I don't know that much about them. I was wondering if any of our readers have great recommendations for someone who doesn't know that much about Tablet PCs. I want to get a good balance of features and price. I don't need anything top of the line by any means, but I would like some upgradeability, and some low to mid-range specs. Are there certain things to look for; are there certain models or manufacturers to avoid? Any ideas, thoughts and opinions you have would be greatly appreciated. I have read reviews of Tablets, but I trust the people who have actually used Tablets for work and every day life more than any article.
