What's the difference between a Tablet PC and Laptop?

Asked by seVen (3472points) August 14th, 2008 from iPhone

Is there any besides one you can flip the LCD screen and write with a special stylus pen?

nope, because it’s essentially the same, only a tablet pc has a tablet built into a laptop…

Usually the tablets are laptops with keyboards and swivel displays that rotate 180 degrees and fold down to resemble a pad of paper; the displays are touch sensitive, as compared to non-touch displays of conventional lappies.

I would never put them up there with ‘tablets’ though. To me, to be a tablet, it must be capable of pressure sensitivity and tilt sensitivity. Otherwise its useless to me.

No, but I do have 9X12 Intuos from Wacom. I’d just about KILL for a cintiq.
