Not sure, but why don't you make a pair, climb a two story 12/12 pitch and do an analyses between the two.
Oh, and I'm sure you might win $100,000 if...

    What is the BEST tablet pc on the market today for our type of work (field adjusting)?  I am looking to purchase a tablet pc.  I am currently running Xactimate(24) software, but  I don't mind upgrading to 25.   Tablet pc's seem to be pretty costly and I want to purchase the right pc!  Thanks for your help!!

    I don't claim to be an expert, but I chose the Fujitsu Lifebook T series T4215 (the latest is the T4220). Reason 1: I can put a second battery in the DVD modular bay giving me about 4 real hours of working time. This was the most important criteria for me. If I plug in while driving, and I don't keep it on all the time I can get a full days work out of one set of batteries. Reason 2: It has the fastest chips to run Xactimate, Dragon Naturally Speaking, mapping software, etc. Others offer a lower voltage, but slower chip, but don't get much more battery time. Reason 3: Fujitsu makes a custom fit "bump case" that allows me to scope/write while I walk through the house. I wanted a way to carry the tablet even when I am climbing roofs. Reason 4: Fujitsu offers a useable indoor/outdoor screen - so I can work almost in any lighting condition. Other things I like: small easy to pack docking station, built-in SD card slot (for downloading photos immediately), Fujitsu's reputation, 4.5 lbs even with the second battery. Xactimate 25 runs easily on this machine.

    I have been activated in the military for the past 14 months and am finally coming back to work as an independent adjuster. I have previously used an ASUS 15" AMD 4GB DDR 250GB HD unit, however the motherboard crapped out on me (running pretty much just Xact and OpenOffice).
    This thread is pretty old... I am wondering what you all have been using since the last post in 2008? I'm interested to see if newer tablets/hybrids have cut the muster for field adjusting and using Xact. Can Xact Scope work on these systems or just iPads? Is it worth the trouble? Just looking for some advice/feedback.

    I am using a Lenova Yoga.  It is a convertible laptop and has been excellent for me during Sandy.  I can scope and enter into my software onsite.
