ACT! on Win7 Tablet without the Web?

I would like to run ACT! on a lightweight machine (lighter than a laptop) but I don't want my information to leave my hard drive, or flash drive, etc.

 

Does anyone have any thoughts on how to do this?  With a Windows tablet, maybe?  80% of what I do offsite involves reading large PDFs and working with ACT!.

 

 

TIA,

 

Michael

Handheld Contact on the Ipad with EverNote  (evernote will sync out the pdf files

 

Or Citrix hosted ACT on the IPad with Evernote (for the pdfs)

 

I can give you a demo of the second option if you want.

Thank you, but I prefer a fully implemented ACT!.  If I use a Windows 7 tablet, would I be able to install the full version?

I don't know anyone who has tested with one or how it works with the touch screen

I have a number of clients now who have the Acer WIN7 tablets and the full versions works fine on this but what brand and model are you looking at as these devices are WIN7 64bit with 8Gb of RAM and solid state drives?

Thank you for your replies.

 

Mr. Buchtmann,

 

I have just begun looking for a make/model.  I thought I would carry my laptop everwhere, but I do not and I think a tablet would be lighter.  Do you have a suggestion?

 

TIA,
