That is interesting.
I've found that my "killer application" is being able to write on
powerpoint slides as I am lecturing. It turns powerpoint into the
equivalent of an overhead projector with a grease pencil to write on
your prepared foils (nothing like lots of technology to go back to the
good old days).
I've been a tablet PC user for years. Based on my usage, I strongly
prefer the slate form factor versus the convertible, however, I suspect
other users may find exactly the opposite to be the case. Of all the
slate tablets I've tried, I prefer the Motion Computing platform. For
convertibles, the Lenovo X61 seems to be closet to the top of the heap
(although I must admit that I haven't seen the latest HP convertible).
