What's in a name? What's the difference between a notebook and a laptop? If you don't know, join the majority of us.

Generally speaking, a laptop has an optical drive while a notebook attaches a drive via a cable. Usually, notebooks are lighter than their laptop counterparts. Some use the terms interchangeably, and if you're one of them, don't worry about it. Odds are, the person you're talking with won't know either.

For more information about notebooks and/or laptops, click the Notebooks tab above.

Tablet PCs

Start with Windows Vista or Windows XP Tablet PC Edition for superior stability and compatibility, add specialized software like Journal, Sticky Notes, Pen Flicks and more and you have a computer unlike anything you've seen before.

All Tablet PCs include the revolutionary screen that allows users to write directly on the screen. Handwriting recognition allows us to use our computers as never before. The screen mode can be changed from portrait to landscape with the touch of a button or simply changing the position of the Tablet. One model can even be used as a touch-screen as well as using digital input.

Small, light, fully functional with a variety of options for operating systems, netbooks are being introduced by many manufacturers. Intel's Atom processor is giving a big push to these tiny computers. I've wanted something that works like this for a long time. They're perfect as a travel accessory. You'll find mine in my purse almost all the time.

Ultra-mobile PCs

Whether it's spelled Ultra-Mobile, Ultra Mobile or Ultramobile, an ultra-mobile pc is a small computer that allows you to take your information with you everywhere you go. You can connect and communicate while on the bus, in the car, on the beach or just lounging in the back yard. It's one of the family of writable PCs!
