Tablet PC

All good points.... The tablet PC's I've seen are touch screen and/or stylus (pen) driven so I don't think the pointing device would be an issue... and you *could* actually use it as a remote desktop to a computer (laptop) down below... even wirelessly... oh man... how cool can it get!. but seriously, would I want to depend on a setup like that???

It might work well if you had a remote display on-deck and the main computer below decks (but you might not have control of the functions unless you could rig up a wireless handheld pointing device; or trackball.

I'm trying to decide which way to go also...[/quote]
