   Why Buy a Tablet PC?
   The evolution of mobile computing

                           A more powerful and versatile mobile experience
                           The Tablet PC does everything that your PC or NoteBook does, without requiring
                           all the usual input devices, making it instantly more flexible and more natural to
                           use. Its portability surpasses even the standard notebook design, forming a
                           powerful mobile solution.

                           It runs the Windows XP Tablet Edition operating system which is a superset of
   Windows XP Professional with specific enhancements for Tablet PCs. This also means that you can run
   applications that are compatible with Windows XP, giving you access to the tools that you have on your
   desktop PC in a mobile and versatile computer.

   As well as the way that it aids using the hardware (like being able to rotate the screen) there are a whole
   host of advanced features that make up the Windows XP Tablet edition. The following are just some of
   them:

   1. Tablet PC Input Panel
   Input Panel is an on-screen keyboard and writing pad that lets you input text into applications (including
   Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint) using your own handwriting. It also gives you the option to call up
   the on-screen keyboard which you tap using the Tablet's digital pen.

   2. Microsoft Windows Journal Windows Journal turns your Tablet PC into a digital writing pad. Notes
   can then be taken directly onto your Tablet PC, so you don't have to enter them into your computer later.

   3. Microsoft Reader
   Read and annotate electronic texts during study or discussions. MS Reader is included with your Tablet
   PC, books can be easily downloaded from online book shops.

   4. Advanced handwriting recognition / conversion
   Flexible handwriting technology allows you to convert handwritten notes to text when want a formal,
   typed result. Alternatively, you can save your handwritten notes in Microsoft's Digital Ink format, as if you
   had written them in your notepad or exercise book in class or on a field trip, for example. As these are
   saved as Digital Ink you can search for words within your handwritten work, just as you would if it was
   text.

   5. Document annotation
   You can annotate directly onto documents with the Tablet PC digital pen - letting you mark up articles,
   assignments and homework with your comments before they are sent. Include hand drawn sketches,
   diagrams and drawings quickly and easily to any assignment.

   Use the online/offline working in RM Community Connect 3 to collect homework, naturally hand mark it
   anywhere, and return it to the network folder with your comments attached.

   6. Gestures
   You can use your digital pen to make "gestures," which are movements with the pen that complete
   common tasks such as pointing, clicking, selecting, and dragging. All this adds up to the most advanced
   operating system that Microsoft have ever produced, and one that works seamlessly with RM's range of
   software titles. It really does allow you amazing functionality in a ultra portable design. Computing will
   never be the same.......

Top ELEVEN Reasons to buy a Tablet PC

There are at least 10 reasons to buy a Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 today, but I just discovered a significant
11th one.

Let's start with the first serious 10:

1. Use Microsoft's Most Advanced Operating System
Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition is a superset of Windows XP Professional so it
provides the power of Windows XP with no sacrifices. Tablet PC Edition has the full
capabilities of Windows XP Professional, plus additional features for tablet pen–based
computing. And, because it uses the Windows operating system, Tablet PC will run Windows
XP–compatible applications.

2. Extend the Way You Work with Your PC.
Windows XP Tablet PC Edition lets you interact with your PC in a more natural way by
incorporating the convenient and intuitive aspects of pen and paper into the PC experience.
Using a tablet pen and Tablet PC Input Panel, you can write directly on the screen and save
your notes in your own handwriting—or convert them to typed text for use in other
applications. The pen can also handle common mouse and keyboard tasks like opening
applications, selecting text, and displaying menus. Or, if you prefer, you can still use a
mouse or keyboard with Tablet PC.

3. Work from Anywhere with the Most Mobile PC Ever.
Tablet PC provides everything you expect in a mobile PC, but in a form that allows you to be
productive in more situations—at your desk, in the hallway, at a meeting, or on the go.
Tablet PC comes in two basic forms: the "convertible," with an integrated keyboard, and the
ultra-slim "slate tablet," which has innovative docking solutions for easy access to the
keyboard while at your desk. Tablet PC supports grab-and-go removal from a docking
stationand has a fast resume-from-standby time. These capabilities, combined with wireless
network support, give you greater mobility and immediate access to the full power of your
PC.

4. Take All Your Notes Electronically.
Windows XP Tablet PC Edition comes with Microsoft Windows Journal, a note-taking utility
that lets you create and organize your handwritten notes. Windows Journal makes it easy to
capture the text and drawings you would normally create using pen and paper. Advanced
handwriting recognition technology lets you search your handwritten notes to quickly find
what you need.

5. Collaborate Easily and Effectively.
Windows XP Tablet PC Edition lets you integrate electronic "ink" into your everyday business
applications such as Microsoft Word 2003, Microsoft PowerPoint® 2003, Microsoft Office
OneNote 2003, and Microsoft Excel 2003. Ink integration is native to Microsoft Office 2003
Editions.¹ You can then share these handwritten documents with other PC users—even if
they are not using a Tablet PC. PC users with computers running the Windows 2000 or
Windows XP operating systems can read your handwritten documents with the free
Microsoft Windows Journal Viewer.

6. Personalize Your Experience.
Using Tablet and Pen Settings controls, you can customize your Tablet PC: calibrate your
pen, optimize your Tablet PC for left- or right-handed operation, and program the hardware
buttons of your Tablet PC to complete specific actions, such as opening an application or
changing screen orientation from landscape to portrait.

7. Extend Your Applications with Digital Ink Handwriting.
Windows XP Tablet PC Edition is a powerful platform for developers and the foundation for a
new generation of applications with pen and ink capabilities. For example, Windows XP
Tablet PC Edition has powerful but simple ink controls and application programming
interfaces (APIs). These APIs allow software developers to extend existing applications with
pen and ink capabilities and to develop new applications using this technology.

8. Deploy and Manage Easily.
Windows XP Tablet PC Edition includes the advanced deployment technologies and policies
included in Windows XP Professional, making it easy to deploy and manage Tablet PCs in
the corporate environment.

9. Provide a Global Business Solution.
Windows XP Tablet PC Edition is localized into English, German, French, Japanese, Chinese
(Simplified and Traditional), and Korean. In the future, more languages will become
available.

10. Get High Levels of Protection for Critical Data.
Windows XP Tablet PC Edition offers all the security features of Windows XP Professional,
including the Encrypting File System (EFS) security feature and the access control feature.
Tablet PC also supports secure log on to a network using a single CTRL+ALT+DEL hardware
button.
