Tablet PC, anyone?

I'm considering getting a tablet PC for use in the following roles:

- Development in .NET (Windows Forms, primarily). _Not_ as my primary development computer-for that I have a nice IBM Intellistation.
- Giving presentations.
- Perhaps being able to replace a notepad at meetings.

A regular notebook computer would work for the first 2 roles, definitely not for the third.

Any thoughts, recommendations, are greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Has anyone used a tablet PC for software development? Any gotchas?

My Toshiba tablet works great with VS.NET 2003.  It's obviously slower at 1.33MHz than my workstation, but immensely portable.  It only goes up to 1024x768 though.
