This is interesting.. in the brochure which you can see here.

http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/product/pdf_files/detailed_specs/portege_M200.pdf

It mentions that it is capable of displaying 16Million Colors.. that'd put it at 32bit color... but in the specs section on the lower end it says that the resolution it's at 16bit color... which is no good at all...

Now the only thing we still need is "Windows Server 2003 Tablet PC Edition", right?

A 4.6 pound Tablet PC? That's pushing credibility, I'm afraid.

4.6 pounds isn't bad. It just means all nerds will now have to get in shape.
