Motion M1300 TabletPC For Sale Sold

This item has been sold. Thanks for your interest!

Last week I was in New York for an analyst meeting and spent some free time catching up on emails and RSS feeds in Bryant Park, taking advantage of the free Wi-Fi. I find myself using my tablet outdoors more and more (which might have something to do with the beautiful spring we're having in Austin) and wishing I had a daylight-readable screen. So I've decided to take the plunge, sell my trusty M1300, and buy a View Anywhere model.

I'm planning on listing my machine on eBay, but thought I would offer it first to the readers of my blog. I'm not sure what a fair price is, so I'll take offers. If I don't get any that seem reasonable, I'll go ahead with the eBay listing.

The machine itself has the following specs:

  • Motion M1300 TabletPC Model T002
  • 1GHz Pentium M
  • 768MB RAM
  • 40GB HD
It also comes with a full set of Motion accessories:
  • Hardtop Keyboard
  • Mobile Keyboard with Touchpad
  • Leather Executive Portfolio
  • Hardtop Cover
It also has a full complement of software, but I need to check my licenses to make sure everything's kosher to sell. I bought the machine as a refurb model through the Motion Friends and Family program. It's in excellent condition, and as an added bonus I can give you the home and cell phone numbers of Motion's support manager. Haha, only kidding, Jay.

Update: After my original post, I got a lot of emails asking how much I want, but since I'm not sure of the market value, I've listed the tablet on eBay. You can view the listing, and bid if you're interested, at:

Motion M1300 and Dell 2405FPW!

Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW 24" Widescreen LCD for $999 shipped: "The new Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW 24' Widescreen LCD monitor costs $999 at Dell Small Business. (To find it, search for 'T6133'.)" —dealnews

This one, unlike the 20" widescreen model, can be driven by a Motion M1300. Mmmm. Megapixels.

Motion M1300 and Dell 2005FPW?

I'm finding myself wanting even more screen real estate than is provided by my tablet's display plus my external 15" flat panel, and lusting after the 20" Widescreen Dell 2005FPW (now available for $487 shipped). I'm concerned about this warning though:

To optimize this monitor's performance, your system must be able to support WSXGA+ resolution (1680 x 1050)
1680x1050 isn't listed as one of the supported resolutions when I go to Display Properties on my M1300. So I'm wondering, is there a way to get my machine to output the proper signal for this display?
