I'm looking for a convertable tablet pc to get for my graduation from highschool. I've looked around a bit, but I'm having trouble finding ones with decent battery life, cpu, and video card (any good ones that I've found have those Intel Graphics crap cards).

Does anyone know of any good Tablet PC's that they could share with me?

By a Convertable Tablet PC, I mean a Tablet PC that double's as a laptop (has a keyboard).

ex.


Monitor spins around, and lays back down on the keyboard

those two look pretty excellent, but I'm not going to be hasty and go buy one right away; suggestions are still welcome!

I'm having trouble finding a tablet PC with better specs than that. Checked with ASUS, IBM/Lenovo, HP/Compaq, Sony, Fujitsu, Dell, Alienware, and Toshiba.

Toshiba does have a better tablet PC though, but only if you have $2,899.00 (canadian) to spend on it :p

Hmm, here's all the GeForce 6200 based tablet PCs on newegg.

I'm going to have to buy a laptop soon myself, so I've been looking around a lot :p I don't think I'll get a Tablet PC though. They don't make them as powerful as they should :p
