There are two tablet form factors that I know of. The one being used at
UVM is not one I would recommend to anyone.
The form factor os the traditional laptop with the swivel screen makes
more sense and is something I can see having serious impact.
Why is it that the two seem to be used synonymously when they are so
The "slate" is a nice toy for people with lots of money to throw around,
the "convertable" is something a user can really get a lot out of. Why has
UVM seemingly adopted the "slate" standard? (I believe that's what's
offered at the Depot)
