Looks like I've got to send my Sony desktop replacement notebook back to Sony for a warrenty repair. That means I've got to get another machine to get me through the 2 weeks of wait for the machine to come back.
Insead of just getting a second, and ultimately redundant, notebook I wondered about getting a Tablet PC. Then when my main machine is returned I can use the Tablet as a notetaker, etc.
Question: can the standard slate-style tablets run programs like Outlook 2003, and Quickbooks okay? They don't have to run fast, just reliably. What has been your experience?
BTW, I'm looking at the NEC and other small format Tablets. They have a Pentium 3 processor and about 20G of hard disk.
