My HP TC1100 Tablet PC


This is probably as sad as it gets but I’m writing this blog on my new (to me anyway) TC1100 HP tablet. Having only ever experienced handwriting recognition on a PDA the accuracy of the tablet is incredible!

Unlike most tablet pc’s which are just a laptop with a swivel display, the HP is a hybrid as it has a detachable screen so works like either a laptop or a slate. This makes it ideal for meetings etc as you don’t feel like a fool carrying a full laptop into the room.

Couple this device with Microsoft OneNote and you get real productivity and having just upgraded to office 2007 I can use the rather neat new feature of sending the content of any office document straight to this blog.

If you’re in the market for a tablet PC I highly recommend the HP. Although this particular model has now been removed from the product line and replaced with the TC4400. This has a higher hardware spec but it’s not a hybrid so I think the TC1100 has the makings of a classic. Pick one up on ebay now whilst you still can!

If you would like any more info on the HP, feel free to get in touch.




…and welcome to my blog!

Allow me to introduce myself. I’m a senior software developer from Birmingham in the UK. I work purely with Microsoft technologies, which for pretty much everyone nowadays that means .NET. Most of my development is done in C# producing bespoke business applications. For the last five years this was for an IT services company but I’m now working in the IT department on some exciting work for a large UK institution. I’m not going to name them here as although the majority of this blog will be about the projects I’m working on and the knowledge I gain (and mistakes I make!) with them they are entirely my own opinions.
