Toshiba Tablet PC

A few years ago I picked up a Tablet PC for a really good price. I did not have any real use for it at the time, but thought it would be cool to play around with, plus I use it with Photoshop, to help me “cut out” images. Well, I just recently got it back out of storage, dusted it off, and decided that I would really start taking a good look at it.

Since the machine is pretty small and lightweight, it is perfect for traveling with. I don’t really do much traveling, but when I do it would be great to have a machine I can take with me. With small dimensions (11.6″ x 9.8″ x 1.5″) and weighing in at only 4.4lbs, this machine is very portable.

I performed a System Restore on the PC, to get everything back to the factory settings. Then I went through the system and removed all the extra software & trials which I do not need or want. I installed all of my “standard” applications (Anti-Virus, Home Server Connector, etc) and got an initial backup created.

I have to say, I am really liking this machine. I can’t believe I let it jut sit for so long, and not gt used for anything more than the occasional Photoshop edit. I have been playing with the Inking feature, and I am loving it. Inking allows for me to write on the screen of the laptop, and then either convert my handwriting to text or leave as is in the document. While I am still finding more and more extensions, add-ons and software geared specifically for the tablet PC, I am realizing that this machine is an integral part of my armory of machines and tools.

Now, if I could just get it back from my girlfriend…
