    Hi

    I now have one of these surplus to requirements a fujitsu pentablet c500

    Full details here if you have never seen one

    http://www.fujitsupc.com/www/products_pentablets.shtml?products/pentablets/stylistic_c500

    I have windows XP pro installed on it & a wireless network card. At the moment I am using it a glorified mp3 player streamed from my server & watching movies at work.

    Can I use this as a kind of remote control???? Is there software for windows xp to do this.

    Can you think of anything else I could use it for in an AV system????

    Like I say it is just surplus to requirements at the moment as I now have a DLINK DSM media player which means I can now watch all my movies from my server on my tv & play mp3s through it.

    Kind regards

    Gary

    Hi

    Yeah it does everything a pc can. I have installed windows XP on it. I also have a copy of media centre here I can dump on it. But apart from streaming videos, mp3s & surfing the net in my lounge with it what software would turn this into a full remote for all my devices etc. I find it handy as I can use it for a tv guide etc...

    Sorry I only have this one but may get rid if the price is right.

    Regards

    Gary
