HP Compaq TC4400 Tablet PC Convertible - Review (pics, specs)


The HP TC4400 convertible Tablet PC is a refresh of the popular TC4200. The TC4400 exterior casing remains essentially the same as the TC4200. The new TC4400 is a solid business-class machine. The design exemplifies durability and endurance, yet hints...

Solid construction, compact design ; Excellent security features ; 3 year warranty

Single external speaker ; No built-in optical drive

The HP TC4400 is backed by a 3 year warranty. For this review, I placed my "traditional random support call" to HP at 1-800-474-6836. I called the number at 8:31 a.m. (PST) on a Friday morning. I went from the recording to an actual human being is 1...

Great productivity tool


If you are shopping for a new notebook, and are in front of clients frequently, you must look at spending a little more, and get a huge return. I use my Tablet 7 days a week, and take my entire client meeting notes right on the device, using the pen...

Small, Lightweight, and long battery performance

Great Condition, Terrible Stylus


I bought this after missing out on the $99 tablet craze. I'm fairly satisfied with it with the exception of the low quality pen. I guess I should have known beforehand, but its certainly not a good replacement for a tablet since it requires a stylus...

Cool pc tablet


I bought this over a month ago. My previous processor was a q6600, which I've owned for almost four years. I've been waiting for a processor with the right price and performance to compete with it. The 1100T is absolutely the perfect replacement. I was...

I use for a professionnal data acquisition with disk, versatile pc, low cost pc tablet windows xp pro compatible with my national instruments DAQ program

that's ok

Awesome Tablet PC!


This is a really nice Tablet PC. It is light enough to be what I call a "one-hander" and I've been getting about 4 hours on the included battery. I immediately installed 2G memory since it's running Vista and I use Dragon Naturally Speaking voice...

Light, long battery life, Vista Business

Fingerprint Reader is almost worthless

Worked great for a year (tc4200)


Even though I owned the tc4200, the battery/warranty/chassis are nearly identical. Worked well enough for one year.

Great pen response. Small. Long battery life (3-4 hours). Quick enough for its purpose

Battery completely died after almost exactly one year. While the tablet swivel is quite durable, pen holster broke after about 4 weeks and latch was broken after about 4 months. ***My initial warranty expired 4 days after receiving the laptop because...

Just Not TOUGH Enough


This mobile unit was everything I hoped it would be - except long-lasting.  The guy who had it before me didn't get much life out of it either.

Extremely useful for either mobility-impaired, or just plain busy, users

Easily lost, stolen and damaged
