If you’ve been following The Tablet Review, you’ve learned who uses the Tablet PC and about the pros and cons of a Tablet PC versus a laptop computer. Now it's time to look at the cost of pen computing and link you to further information on specific models.
The Dell Latitude XT is a convertible Tablet PC that starts at $2,500 and has Dual -Mode Pen and Touch Technology which lets you choose between using your pen or your fingers to write and manipulate your onscreen cursor.
At $2,500, the Sony Vaio UX Micro Tablet PC is the smallest Tablet to be featured in this review. It weighs just 1.1 pounds and is the height and width of a postcard (something I had to see to believe). It features a 4.5 inch LCD widescreen monitor.
Fujutsu has been in the pen computing market since its conception. Starting at $1,000, the Fujutsu U810 is tied for the least expensive Tablet PC in this review. The U810 is a convertible model that comes with a built in .3 megapixel camera and weighs under 2 pounds.
Gateway has always made a good product for a good price, and the C-143X Tablet PC is no exception (my mother is a personal fan). Starting at $1,200, the C-143X Tablet PC features one of the largest monitors on the market – an impressive 14.1 inches.
Starting at $1,000, the HP Compaq 2710p ties the Fujutsu U810 for the least expensive Tablet PCs in this review. The 2710p is a convertible computer that weighs 4 pounds and comes with a fingerprint sensor and Kensington Lock Slot. Options such as a built in camera and Bluetooth technology are also available.
