View Full Version : I've been toying around with different ways to u
I've been toying around with different ways to use my TC1100 while sitting at my desk. I don't currently own a dock; while at my desk at work, I have the 'puter attached to the keyboard. I find that in the work I do, I need to both type & write, and switch quickly from 1 to the other (depending on whether I'm making an outbound call, or receiving an inbound call).
My question to the forum is: If I'd like to keep slate-format use, and simultaneously use a keyboard (bluetooth - if so which?, or USB), are there solutions you've used aside from the Dock sold by HP?

You know, I've found the best thing is to have two computers. Syncing files becomes a pain, but the tablet becomes the dedicated note taker, and the regular computer is for all the heavy lifting.

I have the dock, and it is is a wonderful piece of equipment. I have a few other machines though (slates) and I use a combination rubber-like shelf liner (to keep things from sliding around) and pieces of packing foam (wrapped in that rubber-like shelf liner) to put the Tablet PC in any number of orientations angles for inking. Then I've got a stationery copy stand (lightweight bookstand) to put the thing upright when typing.
As for Bluetooth keyboards, I've got a couple of full sized Microsoft Bluetooth Elite Keyboards (with mouse) and these are fine but big on the desk. I only use these for heads-down typing though, and rarely do a lot of that on a Tablet PC.
If buying today, I'd probably go for this one.
again - it's big but that's not an issue for me if I'm going to be seated and doing immersive, keyboard-required work for awhile.
