    Mainly hardware advances, improved CPUs and better graphics capabilities.
    Plus better screens, too. :cool: You might want to check the overall
    comparison charts on Tablet PC MVP Terri Stratton's web site;
    http://thetabletpc.net for a look at what has been available and what's
    around the corner.

  3. Hi,
    The 3rd generation of Tablet PCs use 1 GHz or faster Pentium M or better
    CPUs. Also, there outdoor screens as an option and there are up to 14"
    displays available. BTW the definition of a Tablet PC includes slates and
    convertibles (units with built in keyboards).

    You can easily compare the features of the current generation of Tablet PCs

    It's Electrovaya's second generation machine. Each company may be in a
    different phase of development. Third generation machines are just starting
    to make an appearance.

  6. Roughly...

    Pent III - 1st Gen
    Centrino - 2nd Gen
    Dothan - 3rd Gen
    Solid State HD's, Fuel Cells - 4th Gen :)

    But then depends on the OEM phase of development too. For example, the
    Motion 1400 is considered 3rd Generation unto itself, even tho it
    technically is Centrino 2nd Gen.
