    Introduced last November, the Intel/Fender Telecaster marries the features of the venerable solid-body electric guitar with a Hewlett-Packard TC1100 tablet PC. Equipped with 1.25GB of RAM, an Echo Indigo I/O sound card and Intel's Centrino wireless technology, the tablet allows the guitarist to play the instrument while listening privately through headphones, record a demo, e-mail the demo to friends, tap into online resources, and use the guitar-PC's Webcam.
