Tablet PCs have been out for a while so I figure I could pick one up pretty cheap.
Scenario 1: the home theater room
-Has an IR port so I can use it like a remote control (not really a NEED but it'd be cool to play around with)
Scenario 2: the garage
-Read PDFs so I can lookup FSMs and other documentation
-Support for IE6 or higher since all the GM FSMs require it (sad but true)
-USB and or Serial port so I can hook up my OBD scanners and run diagnostics/program the computer
Basically something I can easily carry out to the garage to look stuff up or tune my car.
onboard Wifi is a deal breaker, and I'd like a battery life that lasts at least an hour.
Anyone have any recommendations?
I like the idea of a tablet or at least one of those flip-screen convertibles over a traditional laptop.
I'm not looking for anything fancy... a Pentium M based machine with 512MB ram and a 40GB HDD would be adequate for my needs... I'd like to spend around $100 on a used rig maybe $150 if it's a good deal.

I don't know of any models though, that meet your criteria in your price range.

looking on ebay the X41 tablet seems to be the most common IBM tablet and available between 100-$200
even if used in a garage it wont really see very much abuse... mostly just sitting on the bench or on the passenger's seat like digital paper.
