It's BS. They will fall like a blind roofer. They are destined to go the way of the Sega Saturn.

a friend has a fujitsu lifebook 3000.

it's not perfect; the viewing angle is a little restricted and digital ink is only just getting off the ground.
but overall i'd say it's one sweet piece of kit, much more ergonomic than a laptop (which the lifebook 3000 also doubles as), the digital ink works superbly well.
the format is only going to get stronger, wireless surfing on a tablet is the most natural browsing experience. i'll definitely get one in a couple of generations.
they're a bit damn pricey atm, he paid £1170 + vat.

The thing is they have been around for years now. I remember working on them in 96. Why all of a sudden they are the future?

4-5 hour battery
1.4 gig pentium-m (= approx 2.3 gig p4)

100hz sampling on the pen = behaves like pen and paper

operating system designed for it (xp tablet)

802.11b/g/a

essentially they're reaching maturity now. although still expensive and a little way to go on battery (with wi-fi) and screen.

given the choice between a similarly priced laptop and tablet, even if the tablet had inferior specs, i'd probably go with the tablet. in terms of what i use my current laptop for (reading e-books, wireless internet, and misc work away from my main desktop) a tablet would be far superior to my current laptop. right now though, $3-5k price on these things is way more than i'd be willing (or able) to pay.
