ok so I've never really cared about iPods or iPhones or anything like that but the recently release of the iPad has got me thinking... if it was more like a PC it might actually be useful
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)
-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.
