    Upgrade
    AFAIK tablet PCs have horrendous battery life. I've never really looked into it so I have no recommendations.

    I wouldn't buy it, but I'd imagine about £600.

    Why wouldn't you buy it? The processor looks poor, is it? All I understand about processors is the GHz bit.

    It doesn't suit my usage, I like power! :teeth: It's one of those ULV(Ultra Low Voltage) processors - low performance, high battery life. It's probably no better than a netbook processor.

    What would happen if I put the EICAR test file string in my signature? :holmes: :teehee: Oh, looks like it'd have to be an actual .txt file, not just embedded :sad:

    Looks smart. Someone I know at uni has a tablet PC like that, old Toshiba one. Bought it four years ago, still working today. :sexface:

    :sexface: I do have a laptop but it's a bit "out of service" at the moment. Slow, no proper Windows installation, falling to bits. Maybe I'm finding excuses to buy this one.. :erm:

    I can get it for about £700 :beard:

    £700 would also get me 20 years of TSR subs and still have about ~£40 left. :lol:
