HP TC1100

The TC1100 is a versatile, full-function, mobile PC with increased power and performance that incorporates the low voltage Intel-based, low voltage Pentium® M processor and new wireless capabilities. This processor offers higher performance with lower power consumption, giving users an industry-leading battery life of up to four hours.(

The Tablet PC functions both as a tablet and a highly portable notebook PC. When used as a tablet, the device captures digital ink as it flows from an electronic pen onto the PC’s screen. When typing is preferred, users can simply attach a lightweight, removable keyboard – which is shipped standard with the offering.

When combined with its innovative docking solution, a full-size keyboard and a monitor, the new HP Compaq Tablet PC transforms into a functional desktop PC. The flexible docking solution also lets users place the Tablet PC in a more natural, comfortable position to write directly on the screen.

HP has released a ruggedized slate model as well.  For more information on the tr3000, please click here.

Because the Tablet PC’s innovative design provides greater flexibility, users can efficiently accomplish common business tasks such as taking handwritten notes in a meeting for later reference or conversion to text, annotating documents or presentations using digital ink, reading electronic magazines or books, or even discreetly sending handwritten messages during meetings.

Measuring merely 0.8-inch thin and weighing slightly over three pounds, the HP Compaq Tablet PC TC1100 delivers performance and features typically found in a functional Windows® XP Professional ultra-portable notebook. The Tablet PC also includes: 10.4-inch TFT display featuring a wide viewing angle, hardened cover glass and NVIDIA GeForce4 Go 420 high-resolution graphics; fast infrared, built-in Bluetooth and 802.11b wireless LAN capabilities; up to 60-gigabyte SMART 5,400 r.p.m. hard drive; integrated secure digital slot and USB 2.0 connectivity.

Additionally, the HP Compaq Tablet PC incorporates user-friendly features such as fully programmable launch buttons and a one-touch jog dial to launch preset programs and navigate and scroll through applications. The Q menu allows for quick access to common functions, such as display brightness, internal wireless control and video-to-projector controls.

The next-generation Compaq Tablet PC TC1100 is packed with new features for mobile professionals on the run. Intel Pentium M and Celeron® processors up performance, while sparkle-free glass, improved graphics capabilities, increased memory, and an SD (secure digital) slot for removable media enhance the mobile experience. Measuring only 0.8-inches thin and weighing slightly over three pounds, the new tablet offers these features:
