ViewPad 1000

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 18 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

On my way through security, I saw a guy (I’ll call him Ben) who had a ViewSonic ViewPad 1000. I almost took a picture of it, but decided against it because TSA doesn’t like people taking pictures on their turf.

I asked Ben about it. The conversation went something like this:

Andrew, “Is that a Tablet PC?”

Ben, “Yea, it is.”

Andrew, “That’s cool. What kind is it?”

Ben, “It’s a ViewPad.”

Andrew, “Do you like it?”

Ben, “Yea!”

Andrew, “How old is it?”

Ben, “It’s a little old. 900MHz, 30GB Hard Drive, 512 Ram, WiFi. But it’s solid.”

Andrew, “That’s cool.”

Ben, “ViewSonic is actually refurbishing them now, too.”

Andrew, “Really?”

Ben, “Yup.”

Andrew, “Yea, I have an M200, Toshiba M200.”

Ben, “Cool.”

Andrew, “Yup. Well, thanks!”

In case anybody cares, Ben was having his bag wiped down for a mass spectrometer test (because everyone knows what that is;-)).
