I currently use all Windows machines but am planning on switching at least part to Macs if not all to Macs. I have a laptop though that is considered a Tablet PC. I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with it but I don't think they are selling a lot of them but I have gotten so used to this I'd hate to give up the tablet features. Is Mac working on any type of Tablet notebook?

I heard any rumors on any tablet Macs. I wouldn't bet on one coming anytime soon. You might consider a Wacom tablet in addition to a Mac laptop. That may suit your needs exactly, and if it doesn't, then as of now, it seems that you are SOL.

To expand on what Tuoder is saying above...

I wouldn't count on a tablet Mac anytime soon. The fact that so few Tablet PCs are being made is a testament to the fact they just aren't popular (though just like you, anyone that I know that has one has grown to love it despite its lack of popularity). A Wacom tablet may help you out, but it will be quite different. I would say that the numerous other benefits of having a Mac would more than make up for not having the tablet option.
