HP Compaq Tablet PC Tc1100

 

Convertible Compaq operates smoothly as both tablet and notebook.

Capable of working either as a notebook or a tablet PC, the HP Compaq Tablet PC Tc1100 mostly succeeds as the ultimate convertible unit. However, those who expect to use the Tc1100 more as a tablet may be put off by its stubbornness at accepting screen...

Small and light; long battery life; much faster than its predecessor; stylus doesn't need a battery.

Cramped detachable keyboard; docking station costs extra.

Despite its quirky, clip-on keyboard, this system is still one of our top tablet picks for the office or the home.

If we had a PC Magazine Most Improved Product of the Year Award, the HP Compaq TC1100 ($2,399 direct) would be a memorable winner. Usually, new revs of products fix only one or two of the problems we found in older versions. The TC1100 did the...

Ah, the tablet PC. This little model packs enough punch to hold it's own as an ultra-portable laptop computer, adding the ability to use it as a table PC is the icing on this very tasty cake.

Although still on the expensive side in my books it certainly is a strong competitor as a tablet PC. It gives the power you need as well as the convenience offered by it's tablet PC interface.

The Ten Commandments were written on two stone tablets, the Romans used them to writing on, and even Etch A Sketch from the late fifties was based on the idea. So it doesn't seem to strange that laptop manufacturers today are producing tablets. Put...

Delivers on space saving

At risk of being doomed to the niche

A launch price of over £1000-1700 with £260 for the docking station this product though well executed, will stay at business level for a while.

HP has spruced up its new Compaq Tablet PC TC1100, adding many of the improvements we sought in the original TC1000 model. Upgrades include a 1GHz Pentium M processor, which leads to better performance and longer battery life; a battery-free writing...

Though this device is pretty old, i would still consider it better than the ipad and its predecessors. hp really thought of everything, even some stuff you would even dream of thinking about, they put in/on this. Its 2012 and this is still the best...

very advanced, great size/weight/balance, great keyboard, great for art, very nice and loud speakers.

slow at times, docking station still costs lots a decade later.
