Tablet PC vs. Smart Display comparison
A number of people have become confused about what a Microsoft Smart Display is, compared to a Tablet PC. My friend Christian Verdonck has created this useful comparison table:
|Tablet PC||Smart Display|
|Runs Windows XP Tablet PC Edition||Runs Windows CE for Smart Display|
|Complete (actual) computer||Remote Desktop for an existing Desktop Computer|
|Mobile, can be used anywhere||Needs to be connected to WLAN that's conneted to a PC|
|Not as light as S.D., contains all computer components (HD, memory, etc)||Very light, flat display and battery|
|Good Battery Life||No hard disk or powerful CPU means even better battery life|
