A netbook tablet PC (or convertible netbook) sounds like an ideal ebook reader, note-taking device and if the graphics can handle it (as well as the battery) a portable TV/movie viewer. Gigabyte’s TouchNote comes with Windows XP Home and it should be brisk enough for most of these tasks. The surprise is the diminutive 10.1-inch but with a 1366 x 768 resolution–plenty of pixels for your viewing pleasure, though the TN LCD technology brings down the pleasure notch a bit. The US$599 asking price is a bit on the high side but if tablet functionality is important to you in a netbook, it would be difficult to find a cheaper one.
