A superb review easily one of the best balanced ever posted here, having making daily visits here since 2003 running!
I am acclimating currently to my third tablet bought here two weeks ago, the legendary HP TC1100. Fortunately, even four years old, it's a superb experience with countless nuance differences from my venerable Motion M1300 slate, sorting those out then verbalizing details takes time, as you know.
I can say without hesitation already, the TC1100 as artist's slate tablet, now also commonly found used around $400-600 won't disappoint. It runs Vista very well, with careful tuning. I'll add comments and deep details to thread soon.

Here's elegant, professional, exceptionally well-made, all real leather, full zip-around protection folio case made by Samsonite that M1200-1400's just fit inside (with cover) as if was custom designed. It's no longer product line active, but still found here for just $20:
One can even cut bottom slot where legal pad slips into and substitute cover inside tabs facing upwards to snap the slate onto so acting as locking dock. The folio left inside is all soft and won't scratch LCD zipped up, by leaving pockets empty besides papers. Perfect compact case, not padded bulk style. Folio case slips into better protection suited for the serious traveling.
