    Im at college studying graphic design and im looking for a tablet computer to take to college and work on work from, i've considered laptops but im starting to get obsessed with touch screens lol.

    I need something that looks good and is lightweight/thin, and id be planning to have books stored on it, so basically an e-reader sort of thing thats touch screen, but id also like to be able to annotate straight onto the screen and add notes etc

    Price would need to be £500-£1000, also i doubt i can have this but having photoshop/illustrator on it would be a plus, also internet browsing.

    This is where i need your help, with all these new tablets/e-readers etc coming out, i'm completely lost.

    Whats the best option for me to go in, i liked the sound of the MS Courior but thats mainly rumours and the apple tablet again is all rumours.

    so yeah where shall i look and what shall i wait for?

    if that made sense to anyone your help is appreciated.

    The HP TouchSmart TX2Z is a nice laptop. Keep in mind that this is a Tablet Laptop, so its small but not what i would call thin. ITs a real PC so you can but tons of books and editing program on it, as well as photoshop. Its got a multitouch display, so it makes full use of the new added features of windows 7 and some other cool stuff, its falls into the $800(usd) price area.

    There arent any ebook readers that will really get what you are looking for, this is probably the best bet for you.

    Ok thanks guys, ill have to check that out, i'm not sure how good the HP touch screen technology is (never really looked into it) probably cause i really like Apple products, but im open to everything really.

    Thanks
