re: Sorry, Galaxy Note 10.1: Tablet Owners Slam Stylus
I am currently trying to get another ThinkPad X#t series tablet (Windows based tablet). It was another one competing with the Fujitsu Lifebooks and the HP Elitebook (all of them sold WAY before Apple "invented" the tablet). All have handwriting recognition. and you can swap batteries.
I lost my Lenovo because I change jobs a while back and it was given to me by my employer and of course once I quit I had to give it back (go figure). In any case, compare to any of the current tablets, even the X41t (the really old version) kicks the butt out of any of the newer thin tablets except for weight. I could swap batteries and pretty much run for ever (as I charge the other batteries) and batteries would last around 6-7 hours (with my workload). So NO, the iPads, Android, Blackberry, webOS tablets are TOYS compare to Windows base computers. The computing power of even your old Fujitsu does not compare to the latest iPad since it is much more powerful. What they have improve is weight and screen resolution. But you can get a full out Windows 7 tablet that can run 100x faster than the best toy tablet can connect to almost ANYTHING. Yes you can attach a 3G, 4G card to it and there are options to run the tablet up to 16 hours. The difference is weight. You can get them with 1TB of hard drive space (plus attach as many USB drives as you want), they can have 8gb of RAM (as oppose to 2gb for the newer Android tablets or 1GB for the newer 10" iPad since the mini still has only 512mb). So the Note 10 is not a better replacement to the Fucjitsu just lighter.
