I currently use a Toshiba M700 Portege tablet PC with a 64bit 2GHz Core 2 Duo processor and 4GB of RAM.
For those not familiar, the M700 has a Wacom screen, meaning I can draw with a stylus and it's pressure sensitive. I use it with Photoshop for professional work in both animation and comics.
But it is getting a bit long in the tooth so I'm looking to maybe upgrade and want to know the best options.
For my needs a stylus-based pressure sensitive screen is a must. If it has touch screen capabilities I need to be able to block that or turn it off because my hand rests against the screen as I work.
It has to run Photoshop. So, no android or iDevices. I'm looking for a tablet PC or a slate that runs Windows.
It needs to be at least as portable as my M700, better battery life would be nice (I currently only get like 3 hours on a full charge).
It does not need to be a super computer, but if I can enable the 3D functions in CS5 extended to paint textures on models, that would be totally wizard.
Not setting my lap on fire or leaving me sterile after extended use would be a nice bonus.
Having a keyboard attached isn't necessary if I can use a wireless or USB keyboard with it, but I imagine it would need buttons on it I could bind to basic keys (like delete, ctrl, alt, shift, etcetera).
I've been looking at more recent tablet PCs as well as the slates I've seen at http://www.motioncomputing.com/
Any suggestions, advice, or first hand impressions would be much appreciated. Thanks much!
