Thanks for the opinions evryone. what do you think, I should go with the tc1000, or the 1100 with a Celeron 800 for $200 more?
Well, I'm surprised that Chrissss is happy playing movies on TC1000. I haven't tried it myself, but multimedia capability is supposed to be a weak point of the Crusoe processor - relevant processor functions are either missing or slow. I think the Celeron will be better, although I'm not sure how much - the early desktop Celerons didn't have multimedia extensions either, I think. But Celeron is just a brand name now, like Centrino. Celeron used to mean Intel-on-a-budget, hence missing multimedia functions. For those you paid full price. But that doesn't necessarily describe the feature set of current processors.
Perhaps you should test this out if it's important - incidentally, how do you intend to get movies into the machine? DVD player on USB? I guess, too, for this use, you should look closely at the screen quality.
On the other hand, you could approach this purchase on the basis that if you like a Tablet, you'll upgrade quickly. There are machines on the market now that blow both of the Compaq Tablets away. But they cost.
