Tablet PC’s Rule!

I’m writing this in “ink” on an IBM/Lenovox 41 Tablet and it’s a surprisingly pleasant experience!

I’m running Windows  7 (build7068- gotta love those torrents hehe!)  and I’ve given it no training at all for my almost Doctor-worthy scrawl and it is amazingly good at getting my scribble!

I was forced to upgrade from the beta (build 7000) by a lack  of video drivers – it would work until Windows  update ran. . . . then it would freeze…. I pinned it down to the Vid / Chipset drivers. A load of google-foo  later, I discovered some posts that implied that  support was improved in newer builds  and they were right!

Support in this build appears superb –  I have screen rotation, and the box doesn’t freeze!  Way to go Microsoft / Intel…….


More things I like :-)


I’ve sold my big Acer laptop and the cash has been put towards a new toy 🙂

I’ve ordered a HP Mini-Note 2133 from E-Buyer (their UK pricing was considerably better than even HP themselves!). In order to keep it all shiny and protected I’ve also ordered and sleeve-case from Waterfield Designs and I have to say it was one of the best examples of customer service I’ve come across in years!

I placed my order, it’s simple as all things on the web these days are… and a few hours later I got an e-mail from Gary (the founder) asking for some more info about my address (apparently "British Isles" doesn’t count as a proper country in the States 🙂 ) after a quick explanation that UK or Great Britain would suffice, it was all good. 

I’ve had a couple more messages back and forth with them since then, confirmation of exactly what was ordered and a dispatch confirmation. All in all I have to say, I am extremely impressed! I’ll post more once it arrives – but I have no doubt that I’ll  have nothing but positive things to say. 🙂
