Thanks for that advice Ambrosia/Suzanne
I discovered another option from the site you referred me to which is
the Fujitsu LifeBook T4220 (2.2GHz Core 2 Duo) Integrated Intel(r)
Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 with Intel(r) Clear Video Technology,
up to 4GB RAM and 120GB HD. I have emailed them to find out if this
alternative chipset functions with 3D games applications. Still an
integrated Intel GMA chipset but specs suggest has superior graphics
capability. I have emailed them for further information.
I'll keep you posted!

Kind regards

Since you are still shopping, there may be more multimedia-friendly
tablets out there  now  ... 
Check out the HP tx1000 with NVIDIA GeForce integrated graphics:
And there is the newest Fujitsu tablet, the Fujitsu T2010,  with the
newer, reportedly improved Intel 965GM chipset:
Both of these are very attractive!

Hi Ambrosia and colleagues
I am going to purchase an Intel Mac laptop for primary use in SL (based
on very encouraging response from fellow SLED members) but I do still
want a Tablet PC for meetings and commuting between campuses. It would
be ideal if it could still run SL even if jerky so I can at least show
our courses to colleagues at uni on different campuses. I am now looking
at the rather slick Fujitsu ST 5112 tablet which I am sure will have the
same issues given it too has an integrated Intel(r) Graphics Media
Accelerator card but wondering if anyone knows whether these specs make
any difference?
Intel(r) Graphics Media Accelerator  950 with DVMT7
ml#f7>  3.0; low-power, high-performance 2D/3D graphics, video and
display capabilities at a max. shared memory of 224MB
I am planning to upgrade the standard 1GB RAM to 4GB.
Thanks to anyone who can help :-)

Kind regards
