Which Convertible Tablet PC??
      05/16/12 03:52 PM

I've been checking out all the MTR videos on Youtube, I've even watched some of them multiple times!
They have got to be the BEST review videos I have ever seen! Keep it up!

I'm looking to get a convertible tablet PC (running windows) to use as my main computer and for taking notes in my engineering classes using Microsoft OneNote. Multitouch and a wacom digitizer pen are a must! I might also do a bit of cad work and some light video editing occasionally. So I think a mid-range Intel Core i5 with the Intel HD 3000 graphics is fine for my needs.

I saw the MTR review for the HP 2760P, I didn't really like that one (seemed sort of chunky and heavy looking).
I liked the Lenovo X220 more though. I watched some other videos to get a sense of what the tablet version (X220T) is like, but itís hard to know if intense note taking on that small 12.5" display at 16:9 will be possible, it sounds small and narrow to me anyway.

I really like the Fujitsu T901 which I saw in some other reviews but it's quite a bit more expensive; however the 13.3" display at 16:10 is more what I am used to on laptops. It also seems more like the size of a sheet of paper in portrait mode.

I've never had a tablet pc before, so I donít know what size is suitable for note taking. Iím hoping someone can here can help me, none of the retail stores carry convertibles so I canít try before buying. Iím open to other models too, I just had a hard time finding any recent convertibles at all.

Thank You!!!!
