    Hello all,

    Couple of questions:

    1. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what brand/model Tablet PC would be
    the best to use on an Educational Multimedia media cart to be used by college
    teachers in classrooms?
    2. What is the largest screen size avaiable for Tablet PC? Which
    manufacturer has it?

    Thanks for any help i can get on this.

    Tough question, Nabeel. Depends a lot on how the teachers will be using the
    Tablet PC. For configurations on Tablets, their screens, etc., you may want
    to check Tablet PC MVP Terri Stratton's comparison charts at
    http://thetabletpc.net .

    As for classroom usage, you might want to check the eight case studies under
    the Education section here:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/tabletpc/evaluation/casestudies/default.mspx
    Those should give you some insight into the present deployment everywhere
    from Massachusetts Institute of Technology to an elementary school in
    Aurora, Ontario, Canada.

    One solution that might work well is combining a Tablet PC with an
    interactive whiteboard. This would allow people to write on the board and
    write directly into a computer. This would avoid having to get a huge
    screen for the Tablet since a large number of people can see the interactive
    whiteboard. Also, someone can drive the Tablet by writing on the screen yet
    people watching can see the projected display without a hand in the way.
