Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Let's see what kinda info any of you guys have on this.
I am looking for a tablet-pc/netvertible. A netvertible, if you don't know, is a netbook where the screen can rotate/flip and become a touch-screen tablet-like appliance. My main reasons are for portability purposes. I am a college student, so I get more than a bit of online reading to do. Something like this would help so I don't have to sit at my computer and read or print an asston of paper (or pay for it if I'm on campus). I just cannot read long lengths sitting on my computer chair. I want to take something with me and sit down in a comfy chair, lie on a couch, etc, especially if I cannot find a computer to use on campus. Other big uses are similar, in that I also have an ever-growing digital comic collection. I want something that can read all these comics (in .cbr format, a program like ComicRack preferably) on the go. Being able to flip the screen into a handheld comic viewer is especially attractive to me. Other uses I'd have include homework, note taking, and other related things.
Other specifics that I'm looking for:
-Fast. Not expecting a speed demon, but something that won't take forever to load up or turn on the interwebs.
-Windows. I just like something familiar. No iPads, thanks.
-Good touchscreen tech.
-Large screen. Looking at 10-ish inches, for better document viewing.
-Price? I dunno. I don't mind paying a bit if it's sure to be what I want. Over $600 would be stretching it tho.
Can't think of anything else atm.
Or, if you can't think of anything specific, the little digging around I've done has yielded these two interesting ideas. A newer ASUS brand
or Dell Inspiron Duo (This one has been recommended, especially for running ComicRack, pretty much reason number one why I looked into it)
So what can you tell me or recommend me, if at all, H/A?
