Could I play World of Warcraft on a tablet pc such as Motorola Xoom?
The Xoom and Playbook are pretty much the same, just different brands. And no, you cannot play WoW on a tablet. Get a razer switchblade gaming PC for virtually any games. It has LED keys so when you play WoW, it shows your commands on the keys, not the screen.
Is there software useful for programming on a tablet pc?
Although hand-writing recognition is very-good to excellent on TabletPC's you'll find writing "code" to be somewhat clumsy.
You're using non-standard words and grammer so recognition is more difficult. You could use the Tablet Input Panel (TIP) in letter recognizer mode, but that will be slower than keyboard.
I, personally, don't know of any software that will help, but you may find an better answer to this on either of these 2 TabletPC forums:
What is difference between a Tablet PC and a Wacom Tablet?
A tablet PC is a type of computer, with all bells and whistles, with a touchscreen as an extra. You can look at it als a PDA on steroids :-)
A wacom tablet, is a usb device, wich you connect to a computer, where you can "draw" on with a pen, like a digital paper. They exist in many sizes, depending on your budget and needs..
Can I use a Tablet PC as an input device on a desktop computer?
You probably could do this, but it would likely be too clunky and slow for any real use.
Because the TabletPC is a full computer in itself you cannot use it as an external device.
You could, however, network the 2 computers and the TPC could run the desktop through various desktop extension applications that are available...but there would likely be unacceptable amounts of lag between the two systems.
You CAN do it, but I don't reccommend it unless you have a really steady hand because plastic on the LCD monitor moves a lot more than your regular pen/pencil on paper, so finer details are harder to do. If you plan on drawing just basic things, yeah sure, but for detailed works, paper works best.
I would try the flash drive. If no workie then I would buy cheap external CD unit.
I used Norton for years and was the best at stopping everything bad. But never tried the 360 program but I imagine it is as great as other Norton products.
Which tablet PC comes with a pressure sensitive pen?
The Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook T5010 which I have has a pressure sensitive pen. It is based on a Wacom active digitiser, as are most modern tablet PCs with active screens. Purely passive screens i.e. those that can be operated by your finger, don't have pressure sensitivity, I gather.
I believe the Toshiba Portege range also uses Wacom active digitisers with pressure sensitivity. The Lenovo I don't know.
You can use any type of card you want. you can use expensive ones or cheap ones like index cards. The card is only a medium, what's important is the message inside. If you would like to buy some index cards, you can use this link.
I'm pretty sure that Gateway TabletPC's use Finepoint Technology screens.
This means the pens probably have batteries in them. So it's likely the batteries have died. Open the pen and replace the batteries and you should be good to go.
Is it true to use Tablet PC or Virtual key board on screen can protect you to steal your personal inf?
It is to an extent...
If a keystroke recorder has setup a windows callback then running a Virtual Keyboard and using that instead will bypass the keystroke logger.
The same software could also be doing other things to steal your information though, like enumerating all visable windows for boxes that contain bank names and the contents of the boxes, etc.

How much does a slate tablet PC cost and where can I buy one?
Unless you've actually used a slate tablet PC before, it is advisable to go to a store and try one out.
Tablet PCs are manufactured by several companies such as Lenovo (IBM) & Fujitsu. They are very nifty and handy when processing orders and walking around or simply drawing and can recognize single touch gestures as well as pen input. Like the Lenovo ThinkPad X201 Tablet, it works like a laptop and the screen swivels and folds into a tablet and has a wonderful hand writing recognition software that reads even script letters! Unfortunately, these tablets can get quite heavy after a few hours or a long day carrying it around like a thick notebook. It weighs about 3 pounds and that's without a media (CD/DVD) drive. They can also be expensive as in the range of $1,500 to $2,250.
Is it worth it? It depends on your needs and requirement. Is it necessary? Only if you have an application that requires a tablet computer.
You can always try a multi-touch laptop. These types of laptop have multi-touch screens like the iPhones/iPod Touch. It recognizes multi-finger gestures as well. Check out Lenovo S10-3t at only $550. It has a small 10.1" display that pivots and swivels like a tablet and recognizes multi-finger gestures but doesn't recognize any pen inputs.
Good luck and I hope this helps.
What is the difference between a tablet PC and a notebook PC?
Actually, both of the laptops you mentioned are tablets. A couple of differences between the two laptops - R400 has no optical drive and has worse performance than the m700, but its lighter and it looks much bettter. I personally own a toshiba m700 and I find it easy to use and fast (with its 2.4ghz intel core 2 duo). Get the m700 - its definitely the better deal.
What is the best type of Tablet PC for a college engineering student?
Don't worry so much about the processor speed. If it's 2.2ghz or higher, it will fit the specs recommended. They give that 2.2ghz as a minimum for the software they will issue you to use. Also, if it has more RAM than is listed, that's fine as well.
What is the best place to order some tablet pc online?
I just ordered my very own Google Android 7'' Tablet PC eBook Reader WIFI UMPC M002 Netbook Apad iPed iRobot MID at this site for only $105.00: http://www.tomerep.com/google-android-7-tablet-pc-ebook-reader-wifi-umpc-m002-netbook-apad-iped-irobot-mid.html
They offer free shipping to many destinations worldwide.
browse here, they have some of the best tablets...
By using it as a regular computer what do you mean? Like a big, touchscreen laptop? You arn't going to be able to find one of those unless you find a major discount on amazon or ebay or something. (As a side note, a "tablet" that can be used as a regular computer isn't even really a tablet, even so they have somehting like that on their site...)
Unless you meant you want to be able to use it for navigation on your computer... then there are many tablets they have for that, I may be getting the Intuos4. Just saying.
Hope this helps, best of luck ^^
What is an inexpensive tablet pc that can handle drawing and making art well?
They do exist but whether they are 'better' than a laptop is debatable. There are a number of laptops that can also double as tablets, the screens either fold back over the keyboard or can be 'flipped' over and some that just have touch screens but still function like normal laptops (they dont fold back/flip)
Both the art programs you have mentioned are Windows based so you will need a windows based tablet PC (rather than android tablet or an iPad). The cheapest I've seen are refurbished or second hand units starting from £160-200 but they tend to have smaller capcity (either SSD or HD). The full price units are obviously more , expect to pay £500+ ( some are closer to 1K) for a high spec one. Look at the Fujitsu Stylistic ST5112 , Viewsonic ViewPad, Archos 9, ASUS Eee Pad or Acer ICONIA ranges. There are also numerous 'cheap' nonbranded resellers on eBay.
No, it is NOT a TabletPC.
Vista has all the "extras" for TabletPC's built into the operating system but they are only active on a TabletPC, so that's why the folder is there.
You might be able to run Sticky Notes and "write" onto them with your mouse. Also, you might be able to use Journal (which is a note-taking application) but you won't be able to hand write anything into it.
The Input Panel is strictly for TPC's and should not run at all.
Will all the vista tablet pc components work in XP or ubuntu?
No, they will not work in either XP or Ubuntu.
Linux, I have heard, does have *some* tablet support apps floating around but they are nowhere as comprehensive as what is found in XP or Vista.
MS made many changes to the TabletPC apps in Vista. TabletPC components are now integrated into the Vista OS and are definitely superiors to the XP versions.
In XP, you got WinXP Pro and the TPC components were "shell" apps that ran on top of XP, external to the OS.
On a TPC Vista is definitely the OS to run. Vista is actually quite good. The problem is the third party software developers who have not cleaned up their code to run efficiently or correctly in Vista. And many 3rd party hardware manufacturers have made absolutely horrible device drivers which cause all sorts of problems. I guess that's what you get when you pay someone in Bangalore $1/hour to write your drivers...
And you state you have the 64 bit version as well. Way too many software developers have ignored the 64 bit system and stuck writing apps only for the 32 bit OS. That will be your biggest problem...
If you do want to downgrade to XP Tablet Edition you need to know that XP TE was OEM only. You cannot buy the TabletPC version of XP anywhere except from the manufacturers.
If you're a true geek you can load XP Pro and find all the required apps to create a TPC, but it's a very difficult task to do so. It's much easier to contact HP.
My suggestion would actually be to wait for Windows 7 to arrive and upgrade to it. It will fully support the multi-touch screen on the TX2 which XP will not.
Buying a used tablet pc to use as a digital sketchpad and idea book?
I don't suggest refurbished or used tablets because they can be troublesome in the future and reselling would be hard.
I think ViewSonic 10 inch tablet what you are looking for. It is much cheaper than other tablets such as iPad, Galaxy Tab etc.
Here is the link for your review: http://amzn.to/gJx8xW
What is the difference between Graphic tablet and tablet pc ?
A graphic tablet is a computer accessory specifically designed for graphic works. With one, you can manipulate line weights very much like a pencil or a brush (press hard for larger lines and light for finer outlines, turn the pen around and you will have a virtual eraser with the same degree of functionality). In addition to that, it feels much more responsive and natural, and they don't run on battery power. However, most models force you to look at the screen and draw, and not your hand and paper as you would normally do, so you will need to practice coordinating your hand-eye movements for a while, but after that, graphic tablets are handy.
On the other hand tablet PCs are not designed for artists, mostly they have a touchscreen functionality. Some are entertainment machines (like the iPads) and some are business machines (like the small Thinkpads, HP, etc.). Unless you opt for the iPad, you will have a complete computer to draw on but they are quite expensive and the screens tend to be small and colors are off because of the extra touch layers on top of the LCD (and viewing angle).
If you are an art student, I will recommend getting a Wacom tablet, and a small one at first as they are cheaper and you can test if they are right for you. The current range includes the Intuos4 and the Bamboos, with the cheapest being the Bamboos that cost around $100 to $300. Or perhaps you can have a go at the iPads, I heard someone drew portraits on it with a digital pen so I think they are not that bad, only don't expect much in terms of software and computing power, catering for animators.
If you are serious, I haven't seen any studio not having the D (DTX, DTZ, DTK etc) series from Wacom with which you can draw right on the LCD screens, or at least large, professional tablets. Expect $1000 plus though. Or you can buy a laptop that has a Wacom screen, like the Thinkpad W700 or X220. I can't find the details on the W700, but I think you can still get them elsewhere on the net. Of course, others like Toshiba and Fujitsu had Wacom enabled tablet PCs in their range, but a search on the net yielded little new information on these machines, I'm sorry.
But it all boils down to how much work you will do. Animators tend to draw a lot (on 2D animations) or zip around with models (on 3D animations) so I think you should have an idea before getting either ones. However, a solid approach has always been with a graphic tablet and I'm sure that they work on almost every laptop, as long as it has one free USB gate and runs XP or higher.
There are some features I consider before choosing a tablet pc. Such as-
-Processor generation and speed.
-GPU on board.
-Camera and other features like gps etc.
Last but not least- MOBILITY.
What is the best tablet pc for drawing and making art?
The XT2 does have a pen digitizer in addition to the multitouch screen. I have a HP tx2z which is very similar to the Dell XT2 and it's great for most basic to high intermediate level graphics work. If you do a lot of advanced graphics I would recommend Wacom Intuos 4 tablet. I use one on my iMac with Creative Suite and it works great. It would work great on any Mac or PC that can run the advanced features that many graphic programs have. Some programs like Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter require a graphics tablet to use some of the features. Make sure whatever you get has dedicated graphics.
what tablet pc is good for drawing but still good for computer use?
I personally like the HP TM2 Tablet PC, and recently I've also been hearing lots of good things about the EEE Slate. Concept artists in the games industry who were formerly using Wacom Cintiques are now preferring to switch to the slate because of it's portability.
I personally use the TM2 - It has good battery life, good pressure sensitivity and has a decent graphics card for Photoshop, 3d and games. I used to work for Activision as an art director and used this computer for all of my art related tasks. Another good thing about it is that it's fairly small, so easily fits in my backpack and I've traveled a lot with it overseas, and had no issues. This is the best computer that I've ever owned, and the only thing better may be the EEE Slate mentioned above because it's even smaller.
One small issue with this computer is that it doesn't come with a CD/DVD Drive built into it and you will need an external one, but so far I've never had any need for a DVD drive.
I've included a link here with a video I made about different drawing tools that I use (including the TM2) - if you scroll to 2min 56 seconds you can see the info about the tm2.
What is the best tablet PC for CREATING Powerpoint presentations?
Tablet PC? I know a free android office, works good on android tablet. Kingsoft Office. a freeware. The ability to create PPT will be available on its 4.5 version. Which will be released this month.
Tablet PCs are made more for mobility, small size, and light weight than performance. High end gaming is probably out of the question, but simple games should work fine. Chatting and surfing should work too. Just remember, if people use their work computers at home, you are more likely to see spyware and other problems because of more entertainment usage.
A tablet PC is a notebook- or slate-shaped mobile computer. Its touchscreen or digitizing tablet technology allows the user to operate the computer with a stylus or digital pen instead of a keyboard or mouse.
A user can input text using the built-in handwriting recognition, on-screen (virtual) keyboard, speech recognition, or a physical keyboard (if available). Shorthand-like entry methods, which enable pen-driven input at touch-typing speeds, are also available, including AlphaTap and Shark.
Tablet PCs that include a built-in keyboard are called convertibles or hybrids. Ones that are only a screen with pen are called slates; they can use external wireless or USB keyboards.
The most popular convertible tablet PCs are the Acer and Toshiba. The most popular slates are the Motion Computing/Gateway Computers, Fujitsu, and HP/Compaq.
Many Tablet PCs use a Wacom digitizer, which delivers pen-position input to the computer at a fast rate. Tablets with these digitizers project a small magnetic field above the screen that interacts with electronics in the tablet's stylus. The user therefore is able to rest their hand on the screen without affecting the image or mouse pointer; only movement of the stylus affects the mouse pointer. (However, due to interference from other electronics within a tablet PC, many models suffer from "jitter", which makes some tasks difficult, e.g. slowly drawing straight lines, or writing small characters.) UC Logic and Finepoint make similar digitizers.
Tablet PCs became available to the general public with the introduction of Microsoft's Windows Tablet PC Edition in the fall of 2002. Before then they were used in small markets in industry, medicine, and government. Now they are used by students and many professionals.
Most of the tablets you can buy now are convertibles, meaning you can use them as both a notebook and a tablet. They can do anything a typical notebook can and more. Look for the new SantaRosa chipset to get the better on-board graphics solution, also a built in optical drive is a plus to.
