It used the Transmeta Crusoe processor. Unlike many other tablet PCs of its time which can only operate either in traditional laptop configuration, or with the keyboard folded behind the screenthe display is fully detachable from the keyboard.
Design Awards The TC has won numerous industrial design awards. The switch from Transmeta Crusoe processors to the Pentium M and the ability to add memory was welcomed after numerous complaints about the poor performance of the TC The TC was the last version from HP in this style of tablet.
Design The TC has a It has a design often referred hc1000 as a hybrid tablet, as it has the properties of both a convertible and slate tablet. All the necessary hardware components are stored within the casing of the display and digitizer. This allows it to wor The following is a partial list of products manufactured under the Hewlett-Packard brand. The Crusoe is a family of xcompatible microprocessors developed by Transmeta and introduced in Crusoe was notable for its method of achieving x86 compatibility.
Instead of the instruction set architecture being implemented in hardware, or translated by specialized hardware, the Crusoe runs a software abstraction layer, or a virtual machine, known as the Code Morphing Software CMS. The CMS translates compa code instructions received from programs into native instructions for the microprocessor.
In this way, the Crusoe can emulate other compxq set architectures ISAs. This is used to allow the microprocessors to emulate the Intel x86 instruction set.
Transmeta demonstrated Crusoe executing Java bytecode by translating the bytecodes into instructions in its native instruction set. The addition of an abstraction layer between the x86 instruction stream and the hardware means that the hardware architecture can change wi Transmeta Corporation was an American fabless semiconductor company based in Santa Clara, California. Code Morphing Software consisted of an interpreter, a runtime system and a dynamic binary translator.
Among the features were support for general speculation, detection of memory aliasing and detection of self modifying x86 code. This is a list of tablet computers, grouped by intended audience and form factor.

TC is controversial as the hardware is not only secured for its owner, but also secured against its owner.
Such controversy has led opponents of trusted computing, such as free software activist Richard Stallman, to refer to it instead as treacherous computing, even to the point where some scholarly articles have begun to place scare quotes around “trusted computing”.
Others needed hardware modifications such as a memory expansion or modification, new boot ROMs, or the addition of a floppy disk drive. Pointing stick on a Lenovo ThinkPad Detail: Soft Dome, Soft Rim, Classic Dome, Eraser Head discontinued A pointing stick or nipple mouse is a small joystick used as a pointing device typically mounted centrally in a computer keyboard.
Like other pointing devices such as mice, touchpads or trackballs, operating system software translates manipulation of the device into movements of the pointer cmopaq cursor on the monitor.
Unlike other pointing devices, it reacts to force or strain rather than to gross movement, so it is called an “isometric” pointing device. IBM introduced it commercially in on its laptops, under the tc1000 “TrackPoint”.
The pointing stick senses applied force by using two pairs of resistive strain gauges. A cojpaq stick can be used by pushing with the fingers in the general direction the user wants the cursor to move.
The velocity of the pointer depends on tc1000 The driver software balances the workload between the cards. SLI-capability is limited to select members of the GeForce 6 family; and above. Nvidia PureVideo Technology Nvidia PureVideo technology is the combination of a dedicated video processing core and software which decodes H.
SM3 extends SM2 in a number of way The PowerVR product line was originally introduced to compete in the desktop PC market for 3D hardware accelerators with a product with a better price—performance ratio than existing products like those from 3dfx Interactive. Rapid changes in that market, notably with the introduction of OpenGL and Direct3D, led to rapid consolidation. PowerVR introduced new versions with low-power electronics that were aimed at the laptop computer market.

Over time, this developed into a series of designs that could be incorporated into system-on-a-chip architectures suitable for handheld device use. PowerVR accelerators are not manufactured by PowerVR, but instead their integrated circuit designs and patents are licensed to other companies, such as Texas Instruments, Intel, Children being taught how to use a hc1000 personal computer; an older s-era desktop personal computer’s CRT monitor, keyboard, and mouse are visible in the background.
