I was talking about the Dell Latitude tablet PC. As for the 1330 and 1530, the Dell circle (on the exterior lid) is black, blue, red, or white, depending on the the color of the rest of the exterior lid. Maybe the 1330 or 1530 models that you seen in Best Buy were not in the black color (exterior lid)? Maybe that is why the Dell circle was not black.winoffice commented on Dell Tablet PCwinofficehttps://www.salesforce.com/00a70000004NEZXAA4<b><i>Merged Comment</i></b><br><br>Dell already offers a Tablet PC: the Latitude XT. If only the Dell circle on the lid was silver instead of black, and if the price were cheaper (its current starting price tag is $2499; it is too much when there are other Tablet PCs with comparable if not better features for much less), I might have purchased it.vijayn commented on Dell Tablet PCvijaynhttps://www.salesforce.com/00a70000004NEcuAAG<b><i>Merged Idea</i></b><br><br>A Tablet PC from Dell would ideally serve users who want to be mobile and prefer the touch screen and digitial notes advantage. The features should be append to and not replace the existing features of dell laptops.
A sleek design and one touch media controls will add to the diversity for this laptop.
A tablet from Dell that can be used by graduate students or professionals will be hot property and can capture the growing market using Dell's brand name.johnpro commented on Dell Tablet PCjohnprohttps://www.salesforce.com/00a70000004NE53AAG<b><i>Merged Comment</i></b><br><br>I failed to read tablet pc in your title. I just looked up that the Lenovo x61 tablet pc can be ordered with a 1400x1050 12.1inch screen. http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:category.details?current-catalog-id=12F0696583E04D86B9B79B0FEC01C087&current-category-id=274A47B518FC4D50B73CB568CE9D93CBjohnpro commented on Dell Tablet PCjohnprohttps://www.salesforce.com/00a70000004NE52AAG<b><i>Merged Comment</i></b><br><br>I am currently using an IBM thinkpad t40p with a 1400x1050 screen. I know Lenovo now sells the new thinkpads with even higher resolutions up to 1920 by 1200. This screen that I am looking at right now is the best screen I have ever looked at because of the resolution.kenjennings commented on Dell Tablet PCkenjenningshttps://www.salesforce.com/00a70000004NDmAAAW<b><i>Merged Comment</i></b><br><br>1280 x 800 would be a bummer. The motion Computing LE1700 (also sold by Dell) is SXGA+ 1400x1050.
If the XT isn't at least as good as the LE1700, then there won't be any new Dell for Christmas for me.naveed commented on Dell Tablet PCnaveedhttps://www.salesforce.com/00a70000004NEctAAG<b><i>Merged Idea</i></b><br><br>I'm anxiously waiting for the Latitude XT. Other websites list the resolution as 1280x800. This wide-screen fad is really bad for power-users who use their computers for tasks besides watching movies. But besides the wide-screen part, I really would like to see a higher resolution option - ideally 1400x1050.hjwasson commented on Dell Tablet PChjwassonhttps://www.salesforce.com/00a70000004NDKIAA4<b><i>Merged Comment</i></b><br><br>I think Dell is right to not jump into the true Tablet PC market, but I agree with the others here that a convertible notebook is far more sellable - it's a notebook PC that has a touch screen and a cool swivel hinge. Bonus! :-) Toshiba seems to have a winning design in their M400:<br><br>http://www.toshibadirect.com/td/b2c/nbsrch.jsp?stt=all&s=4294967002%204294966817&in_dim_srch=1<br><br>That would be a good place to start. Perhaps offer two different convertible tablets, a 12" light weight power efficient model with long run times, and a large display (15.4") power machine for those that want performance - and don't mind swapping out batteries. Sidenote: see my post regarding faster battery swapping:<br><br>http://www.ideastorm.com/article/show/66314/5_minute_battery_backup_on_notebooks_to_allow_fast_main_battery_switching<br><br>See also:<br><br>http://www.ideastorm.com/article/show/66391antonioavmelo commented on Dell Tablet PCantonioavmelohttps://www.salesforce.com/00a70000004NEcjAAG<b><i>Merged Idea</i></b><br><br>In the latests 3 years, the company I work for only buys Dell computers: High-end servers, Desktop computers and lots of laptops.

Mostly for business/education though.abstractrezn6 commented on Dell Tablet PCabstractrezn6https://www.salesforce.com/00a70000004NEcwAAG<b><i>Merged Idea</i></b><br><br>I'm very confused on why Dell hasn't joined the Tablet PC market...? I have an XPS M1710 and love it. I have always been satisfied with every single Dell laptop that I have owned. However the only thing that I wish that the M1710 had was a swivel lid and touch screen. That would make for the coolest gaming laptop. Even thought the laptop itself weighs 8 lbs it wouldn't make a good tablet only because of size, but I surely would use it as a tablet!
I really do want a Tablet PC, but I'm not for sure which one to buy because I've only really used Dell laptops and I want something thats REALLY fast, has a good warranty, and has a reputation of NEVER dieing!kara_k commented on Dell Tablet PCkara_khttps://www.salesforce.com/00a70000004N4h0AACChanged status to <span>**IMPLEMENTED**</span>.

Have you seen how much that thing costs for a basic spec!!!!
DA1 i really mean it this time. I really will love you if you buy me one. Why doesn't it offer Ubuntu as an OS option?
DELL CLEARLY ARE NOT LISTENING WHEN WE SAY WE WANT UBUNTU!!! Or at the very least a bare bones system. What part of the most popular idea on IdeaStorm is rocket science to implement? Seriously? I would like someone from Dell who takes these decisions to post either on IdeaStorm or Direct2Dell and explain to us why these things cannot be done!
We've waited 6 months since this thing was announced and now it's a Vista clad penthouse pimps joy-toy!
Just in case anybody at Dell didn't get it. I'm sorely disappointed and pissed-off.aikiwolfie commented on Dell Tablet PCaikiwolfiehttps://www.salesforce.com/00a70000004N2rDAAS:oD DA1POSTED AGAIN!!! I'm soooooo excited! I'll love you even more if you buy me one DA1 :oD
Thanks for the update ;o)jervis961 commented on Dell Tablet PCjervis961https://www.salesforce.com/00a70000004N2r8AACDell shot itself in the foot with the $2500 starting price. Multi touch is nice sounding but not for than money and a weak processor, integrated graphics and 1 speaker. People want power, functionality and portability at a reasonable price. I think my 13.3 inch Latitude idea is much better.

Icky! Having a good digitizer (and Wacom is the definition of a good digitizer) is essential with a system like this. I hope to get one of these for Photoshop use, and, yeah. If the touchscreen isn't pressure sensitive enough to interpret pen strokes, it's going to be breaking when I get mine.
I suppose other companies can do Digitizers, but... meh. I'm also hoping Dell reconsiders the Vista only route. Although Vista's much better for Tablets, I still love my XP...sprice82 commented on Dell Tablet PCsprice82https://www.salesforce.com/00a70000004NDtRAAW<b><i>Merged Comment</i></b><br><br>It automatically did that.sprice82 commented on Dell Tablet PCsprice82https://www.salesforce.com/00a70000004NDtbAAG<b><i>Merged Comment</i></b><br><br>awesomemarkvs624 commented on Dell Tablet PCmarkvs624https://www.salesforce.com/00a70000004NDt0AAG<b><i>Merged Comment</i></b><br><br>i'd rather have confusing ones than stupid ones.
