I am a 37 y/o student, returning to college (major in Art, concentration in Graphic Design); have been diagnosed with Narcolepsy and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) for several years. I've been told that a TPC would be of great benefit for me in my struggles with alertness, attention and organization, as well as taking notes and keeping them organized. I've been researching the net for 4 months now, trying to gather general information about TPC's in regards to such... Also, I'm trying to determine exactly which TPC would be best suited for me.
Specifications I have in mind: convertible, large screen, CD/DVD, high speed & memory, weight & cost are inconsequent... So far, the best that I've found are Gateway & Toshiba (especially since I can purchase & have them serviced at a local store in Birmingham).
I need to gather as much information as possible, as I will be submitting letters soon to the Veteran's Administration and Vocational Rehabilitation, requesting their financial assistance in purchasing a TPC.
Thank you for whatever help you can offer. Feel free to e-mail me personally if you'd like.

Thanks for the suggestion... I looked up Acer's TPC, and you're right, it does look very good. After months of reading about TPC's, I finally got an opportunity to get my hands on one at the Gateway Country store in Birmingham... And I'm definitely hooked!
One question I have about Acer is its serviceability. That's one reason I'm leaning to Gateway --they have a local store to go to...
Also, Gateway may consider hiring me as a representative at my college... Have to speak with the store manager next week.
OneNote is an absolute necessity for me. Also considering Sketchbook Pro, to use with art and graphic design.
