Mobile PC Wiki is about Tablet PCs more and less

Supporting You with Your Mobile PC Technologies

This is a place where you can find, add, and edit knowledge about your Mobile PC Technologies. The initial focus is on Tablet PCs, Ultra Mobile PCs (Origami) and Media Center PCs. As various technologies converge, we may see articles on other gear, but for now our focus will be on Windows Tablet and Touch Technologies (the software) and Mobile PCs (the hardware on which it runs).

Let's get back to the business of living.

Technology should be a tool, not an obsession. If we help each other to find ways to use it well, then we can get back to reason we consume technology, to have a better life.


To give users of personal computing technologies a place to collaboratively build knowlege about those technologies.

For some thinking about the implementation details see Why a Wiki?


  • To facilitate the building and sharing of knowlege.
  • To clearly distinguish between facts and opinions, while honouring both.
  • To create a site that is worthy of your participation
