1. The Motion angle is preferable but not critical to the way I use a TPC. Specifically, I hold and use the TPC so that I am looking straight on and the visual perception is the same as the Motion when in this position. There are times when I am glad that someone next to me can't see what I am doing (HIPAA) and there are times when I do place my TPC on the table and wish I could see it better.quote:Originally posted by JDG
Two potential advantages of the Motion over the Scribbler:
1. Viewing angle. This gets rave reviews on the Motion forum. Can anyone comment on the Scribbler 2100, in comparison?
2. Fan. Motion is fanless. My Fujitsu 4110 fan goes all the time, which is tiresome when using it 10 hours a day. Also distracting in meetings. If using wireless and using speech heavily, how frequently can I expect the Scribbler fan to be on?

2. Fan noise doesn't really bother me as long as it purrs and not rattles. Electronic components get hot and the faster the components the hotter they get. Motion has no fan but gets physically warm. Scribbler has a fan but perhaps does not get as hot. Unless there is some new heat dissipating material or liquid in a TPC, faster units will have a fan. The compromise is yours ;)
