More on the tablet front...

It looks like the most cost-effective option would be a Fujitsu Stylistic 3500 tablet. Well-outfitted machines are listing on eBay with a "buy it now" of around $350. The Stylistic 3400 tablet is another option, it's a little older and quite a bit cheaper.

I'm waffling over the idea of getting one, installing Linux, VLC media player and a decent slide-show program. That would make a pretty hot (and relatively cheap) media station to run at a fan table.

On the other hand, I've also got a line on a local Stylistic 5010D, for quite a bit more money, but with quite a bit more capabilities.

I like the idea of installing Linux and VLC player.
Also I ahve been playing around with Ubuntu Linux distrobution and found it comes with a very nice media player already installed.

Eitehr way let me know, I like the idea of a tablet PC for this use.

Re: linux
I've been digging and Ubuntu has been mentioned as working with the Stylistic 3400 and Stylistic 3500...

It seems pretty nice and unlike alot of Linux distro. It has some good documentation. I have only been playing with it for about a week now, but I like what I see, except they get a little to "Microsoft Vista" with there GUI
