    I bought a Tablet pc last year with Windows XP os - but I also want to use
    Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook software on the computer. I don't know
    which application package to buy - is there a specific Tablet pc version of
    these applications or can I use a standard Windows Office suite?

  2. Any program that will run on a Windows XP machine will run on a Tablet which
    is basically Windows XP with the Tablet bits added. Having said that, for
    an Office application, you would want Office 2003, for the additional ink
    awareness that it has. Good luck.

    The Office 2003 version is the best, but which flavor you want depends on
    your needs. You can check out the choices here:

    the OneNote program, which is part of the Office "family," is not part of
    any Office suite and would be a separate purchase if you're interested.

  5. Is it just Windows XP, or Windows XP Tablet PC Edition? What is the
    model of the Tablet?
