A [b]tablet PC[/b] is probably a laptop or notebook that has features where a [I]stylus[/I] and [I]touch screen[/I] or [I]digitizer[/I] can be used for mouse-like navigation. In addition, there are applications and features that permit the end-user to use the stylus to write on the screen as [I]digital ink[/I], [I]character recognition[/I], [I]stroke recognition[/I], and [I]handwriting recognition[/I]. Another common tablet feature involves (a)screen rotation from landscape mode to portrait mode, and (b) automatic detection of this change with a corresponding change in X11 and X-desktop geometry.
A tower or pizza-box workstation might have hardware that enables similar operation.
