    title edit: tablet bought, looking for software)

    well after a long time I've finally decided to buy myself a laptop. It would be extremely useful for school, plus the fact that I constantly need to move around makes it harder and harder to rely on my ipod or cell phone for mobile productivity.

    after a little bit of searching, and a 5-minute test at a local costco, I think I've decided on this:

    I've looked at some reviews and its supposed to be a pretty good device, and I've customized the specs online to what I would get. I still want it to be cheap (cheap as in not much more than $1000, which is why its great that I got a student discount...) and I definitely want it to have a touch-sensitive screen, considering how much photoshop and 3d cad work I'm doing for home, school, and my "secret" project (which you will hear about in a little while)


    EDIT: ok so I bought the tablet, will be here september 16. in the mean time, does anyone know of any cool tablet-specific software. (I already know about physics illustrator)
    anyway please vote and if you vote no, maybe recommend some changes or a completely different device.

    I have that computer and it is very good. Actually, before I bought it, I was thinking about buying a Macbook, but I decided to get because of the touch screen. I don't regret it at all. Handwriting recognition works very well. If you have more questions about check the
    tablet pc forum. I use it with Origami and it very cool.
