Hi and thanks for your question!

The definition of a tablet is still in the works technically. The best way to think of a tablet is anything that looks like an ipad. CNET has an article on What makes a tablet a tablet? And in that article they take you to a thorough breakdown of the different categories of tablets. If you're looking for a tablet that has characteristics of a laptop then Lenovo Idea Pad, and Asus Eee T91 are items to consider. If you're looking for tablets designed like the iPad then the Archos 9 (Windows based), iPad (Apple Based), Joojoo (Web only tablet), or an E-reader like the Kindle and these are just a few. Each of these have there pros and cons which is shared through the CNET article provided for you. You may also want to consider the Entourage Edge which is an Ereader/tablet. 2-n-1, sweet.! This was adpated from the Laptop Mag Top 10 ipad alternatives(I get the magazine but they had the article online too).


These tablets aren't mainstream yet (per se): HP Slate, Joojoo, Dell Streak(wireless carrier has it in the UK...) Dell Mini 5, Notion Ink Adam (due out this summer...?) and MSi Dual Screen tablet.

You may want to wait a little longer since some of these are coming out this year. If you have already fallen in love with one of these then feel free to purchase! I hope this helps!

PS In the article it mentions the Lenovo (great company) IdeapPad U1 was due in the second quarter this year but I couldn't find it under the U Series but rather the S series. You can customize! =)

Hi there.  I've found you a few tablet PC's.  Unfortunately they aren't really cheap.  I recommend the ASUS Eee PC T91SA-VU1X-BK Tablet PC.

Revolutionizing the world renowned Eee PC series, the Eee PC T91 delivers ultimate portability and simplicity with an easy-to-use touchscreen that enables user to effortlessly navigate applications and the Web at a press of a finger.  As big as a paperback novel, the lightweight Eee PC T91 is the world’s smallest and slimmest touch PC. Plus, it boasts long-lasting battery life with the energy-efficient Intel Atom Z520 processor, exclusive ASUS Super Hybrid Engine, and LED-backlit display, so you’ll be able to easily bring the thin and light Eee PC T91 whenever and wherever you go. The Eee PC T91 is built for ultimate mobile versatility.  Conduct on-the-go meetings, read e-books comfortably in tablet mode, show-off your photo album to friends, or jot down some important notes using the stylus writing tool, whatever you choose to do the Eee PC T91 makes it easy.  The preinstalled Touch Gate software makes surfing the Web, navigating through folders and accessing your favorite applications simple and time-saving.  You also get  easy, on-the-go access to your treasured data with a shock-resistant 16GB SSD hard drive, complimentary 16GB SD Card, and 20GB of Eee online Storage**.  The Eee PC T91 is built from the ground up to be your multi-purpose, mobile companion for all your needs.
