Tablet PC

Tablet PCA tablet PC is a fully functional, notebook sized PC that allows you to input data in several different ways. With a specialized version of Microsoft's Windows operating system a tablet PC becomes a writing pad that lets you handwrite text and drawings into the computer.

This custom version of Windows also has speech recognition capabilities that can convert your voice into text. So you can use either the pen or your voice or a standard keyboard and mouse to control the computer.
