Evenin fellas.

A Convertible Tablet Laptop was, kinda the new thing, some years ago. It's a laptop with a twistable screen that you can draw on like a wacom tablet. They were underpowered, over priced, heavy, prone to overheating, and a tiny tiny battery life. On the other hand, they were absolutely perfect for me.

In need of both a new computer and a new tablet some years back, I saw these babies and knew it was perfect for taking my work and drawings anywhere I went.

Nowadays, the whole computer industry seems to be moving towards slate tablets like those iPad dealies you might have heard about. That and coupled with how this convertible tablet laptop never seemed to catch on, the industry seems to be abandoning my style of Lappy. And quite often, I'm finding that updates to my OS will occasionally disable my ability to use it as a drawing tool.

And, well, then you get issues that happen when I have to get a comic done and me complaining sometime last Friday about computer issues. So that's the story.

Oh well, I'd like to thank my friends again for all their help. And everything you guys do everyday to show your support.

ps... now how do I go about changing this comments section...

I think miniaturization is the way of future! It'll all be tablet one of these days. >:3

I hope so since I intend to purchase the Dell Inspiron Mini Duo for college purposes.

I have one! I bought it about 6 months ago. It has all of those downsides you say, but to a lesser degree. When I went shopping for them, I could only find TWO MODELS! I was flabbergasted...

I always used to want the Intel Powered Convertible Classmate PC. I was like that kid wanting the specific BB gun in Christmas story. Kind of glad I never got it, I'm waiting for when the Android platform gets more tablet friendly.

I hope so, they sound great. All i have is a Mac and Wacom Intos 4, so if I could get that all in one package...

If I were to buy a tablet PC, it would have to be pretty cheap, because I'd also want a PC for gaming. I doubt that 3.0-4.0 GHz CPUs and gaming quality video cards will be miniaturized enough for gaming on a tablet PC for a while, so I'd want it to be pretty cheap for me to afford both.

The niche you describe is currently nicely filled by the srface pro 2, which also, with the right apps allows variable line weight when drawing and snap on keyboard.

So long as the niche is there, someone will provide. There may not be a massive selection, but it'll still probably exist
