I spent all day yesterday shooting a commercial for HP and Intel. I was interviewed about my mobile computing habits, the benefits of WiFi for mobile lawyers, and my use of the Tablet PC. I got to use one of HP’s Tablets during the shoot instead of my Toshiba M200 (not better, not worse, just different).
During the shoot I showed my Tablet (as well as the HP) to the sound guy. He had just bought an Apple iBook, but said he would have rethought that purchase had he gotten to use a Tablet first. I can think of no other Microsoft-based product that elicits a similar envious reaction from Apple users. Can you?
That leads into my resolution for the day:
Before you buy your next computer, try a Tablet PC. Use it for fifteen minutes or so. Once you experience the “magic” of using ink on your computer, you will have a difficult time with that boring old Dell or Thinkpad.
Trust me on this one.
