IBM Thinkpad TransNote Compatibility ????

Discussion in 'Tablet PC' started by Richard Lidbom, Jul 6, 2003.

  1. I have an IBM ThinkPad TransNote which runs XP Pro and has
    the Cross Pen software interface. Does anyone know if XP
    Tablet PC Edition will run on this system? Any major
    issues? How would I upgrade from XP Pro?

    The Tablet PC Edition is only fully compatible on OEM Tablet PCs, Richard,
    because they're built to strict hardware compliance for the features. One
    of the critical features of the Tablet PCs is the sample rate at which Ink
    is recognized, that being more than 100 samples per second (with a
    recommended minimum of 133 per second), whereas older systems or even
    desktops using a mouse for inking only sample the strokes at around 40 per

    Also, the Tablet PC Edition is available only two places (1) on OEM machines
    and (2) with a subscription from MSDN for developmental purposes only.
