Is sort of a cross between a laptop and a pocket pc. It is the size of a laptop with a keyboard, but you can turn around the sreen and lay it down so that it is a large pocket pc.
The tablet pc was supposed to be the next big thing but it never caught on.

Noun. A notebook PC that lets a user flip the screen around and lay it down on the keyboard so they can use a pen to navigate about the computer's GUI and write or take notes directly on the screen using their own handwriting.
I just bought the Toshiba Portege Tablet PC. It's okay, but I wish it had a Centrino Bundle at 2.0Ghz instead of a crappy Pentium 3 at 1.33ghz. And 802.11G. And 4 USB2.0 ports instead of 2. and I want it to be half as thin. And weigh half as much. Is that asking too much?

A funny concept priced for the well-to-do corporate crowd. A computer that comes with WindowsXP Tablet Edition and is in two formfactors - a swivel screen notebook and a clipboard type thingie.
Microsoft's latest money making scheme is the TabletPC, meant for the rich.
