Can you recommend an affordable tablet PC that has an exceptional screen for outdoor viewing?

Senior Editor Narasu Rebbapragada responds: Look for tablets whose screens have options for extra brightness (measured in nits) and/or an antiglare coating; screens with these options generally cost a bit more than standard screens. Companies use different naming conventions for their premium-screen technologies--Fujitsu's term is Color-Enhanced Crystal View, HP's is BrightView, and Sony's is Xbrite. A couple of recommendations: HP's Pavilion tx2000 tablet with a BrightView wide-screen display starts at $1300. Fujitsu's Stylistic ST5100 Tablet PC comes with a reflective, front-lit display that's optimized for outdoor, daylight viewing, but it starts at a pricey $2649.
