Tablet_osFrequent visitors to jkOnTheRun are aware that I recently have received the honor of an MVP award from Microsoft in the Tablet PC category.  The award is greatly appreciated and one I take very seriously, in the spirit in which it was given.  Receiving MVP status has created a personal dilemma for me because I do not have a (real) Tablet PC, which makes me uncomfortable.  Finances being what they are I have decided to sell my Sony U750P and the extras I have purchased so I can purchase a Tablet PC.  I would like to sell it here to save eBay fees so if you are interested in a great UPC this is a good opportunity.  Here are the specifics on the Sony U750P and the extras I am selling as a package (I will not sell items individually):

U70_pics_019 Sony U-750P- 512 MB RAM, 1.1 GHz, 20 GB HDD, standard battery (3.5 hours) 

  • Fin stylus
  • Carrying case for U
  • PDAir leather case (fits standard battery only) ($50+ item)
  • Carrying case for folding keyboard
  • English folding keyboard
  • Dock- 3 USB, 1 firewire, ethernet, VGA out
  • Ethernet/ VGA dongle
  • Headphones w/ remote control
  • Extended battery (5.5 hour- $300 item)
  • PCGA-DDRW3- CD/DVD burner (bootable in the dock) ($400 item)
  • VGP-CKU1 case with integrated stand
  • Billionton CF Bluetooth card and s/w (will work with any Bluetooth keyboard, mouse, and cellphone as modem)

U70_pics_017This is an excellent opportunity for someone to pick up a Sony U750 (which are very difficult to find) that runs perfectly and has been properly maintained from someone you know  will be around after the sale.  Overnight shipping is $90 and the sale will go through PayPal and I will ship it once the transaction is verified (US only). If you are interested please email me with an offer for the above.  I am looking to sell it quickly so you can have a Sony U750 in just a day or two if your offer is the right one.   I intend to immediately get a Tablet PC when the sale is complete, probably an HP tc1100.

  2. I have to tell you, the HP TC1100 is an incredible tablet. I’ve tried out a pretty good number of tablets and I think it’s the best true tablet out there. It’s hard to count it as even a hybrid for me, as the keyboard is off 95% of the time. As a slate, nothing feels better in my hands.

    Get me rewrite! This adds an entirely new spin on PODCAST: THE PLAY.

  4. I second Mike’s comments re: the HP tc1100. I’ve owned the tablet for about a year now, having closely looked at the Fujitsu slate and the Motion Computing M1400. What I love about the tc1100 is that you can have your cake and eat it, too; you don’t have to give anything up. You need a traditional laptop experience, no problem; wanna work in slate mode, no problem. Don’t know how you want to work but don’t want to carry around a separate keyboard, no problem. The tc1100 covers all scenarios!

    And if you’d like to keep your tc1100 package as small as possible, I highly recommend the case by Piel Frama.(See here: http://www.pielframa.com/compaq_tablet_tc1000.htm). Yes, the case that HP provides works, but it is sooo big! The Piel Frama case packages the tc1100 in a great-looking form-fitted case. See this review by Tablet PC Corner for size comparison: http://www.tabletpccorner.net/revue_28.htmlseTC1x00. And the Piel Frama case mates very well with the Profile 12 shoulder bag from Brenthaven. After buying 3 different bags for my tablet, I settled on the Brenthaven b/c its the smallest one I found that accomodates the tc1100 in the Piel Frama case. I carry my tc1100 with me everywhere, so I wanted the smallest total package I could find.

    It’s too bad you’re selling your U, James. You know that you were the last thing that made me totally convinced to get one? (And I do ;)).

    If you’re thinking about selling the billionton card seperately (I am looking for one at the moment), please contact me.

    For the English version of a review of the Piel Frama case (which I too heartily recommend) goto http://www.tc-one-thousand.com here: http://81.5.185.34/tc-one-thousand/reviews.html#PielFramaCaseTC1x00 :-)

  7. Very nice case. Looks like it fits perfectly, like Piel Frama cases usually do.

    Oh boy… I’m so excited! Now your show notes will look so much better, right? Seriously – it will be a great ongoing story for our podcast buddy. I’ve told you before that the HP was the only other TPC I seriously considered besides the M200 – you’ve made a great choice. I know you’ll be sad to see the U go but hopefully it will find a great home.

  9. Marc, my show notes will look the same just on bigger pages. :) Anyway, I have to sell the U first so we’ll see what happens.
