You can google for Laptop and get a lot more information there. But, in my recent shopping for laptops I've found:

1) There isn't any noteable difference between a laptop and notebook (there may be a weight difference if you want to get technical). They both sit in your lap, they both open up and work like a computer, and they both supply enough heat to keep your coffee warm!

2) A tablet PC, OTOH, usually has the Windows Tablet PC version of XP installed, usually has a rotatable screen, and usually has a screen that you can write on with a stylus (and capture the writing).

Just my viewpoint since I did some searching recently for laptops. FWIW - I'd love to have a tablet PC - but decided that the extra cost wasn't worth it for me (since my laptop is a secondary system for me).

Can't find any ready information on this - but it's not a readily available OS on pricegrabber.com. Also, why install it on a laptop if you can't use the additional features?

Thanx for ur info.
I just want to see the interface and want to know about the features available in a Windows XP Tablet pc. That is the reason why I want to install it on any box .

As I understand it (this is all speculation on my part from the few times that I've seen tablet PC's) the only real difference is the tools for using the tablet PC (such as screen writing, etc).

Try a google search for Windows XP Tablet PC Edition or variations on that. Also, cruize to the Windows website at Microsoft.com and read a bit about it there.
