Liz Lawley writes over at mamamusings about her six month experience using a tablet PC:
The tablet-specific features of the operating environment are really very slick. I particularly like the Zinio magazine reading software, which lets me read a variety of magazines (purchased one copy at a time, or via subscription) on the screen, and allows me to annotate the pages as I go. Very nice implementation, and ideal for reading on the go.
My primary machine is currently a 15″ Apple Powerbook – at work I use this as well as a Dell laptop that’s about five years old, a Compaq (HP) iPaq and alot of notebook paper.
Tablet PCs appeal to me – I’ve played with a few of them at the FranklinCovey store and some other retailers, but still haven’t found one that really works for me the way that I would want. Besides, I’m pretty attached now to my powerbook and love Mac OS X.
I see down the road though that Tablet PCs are going to outpace laptops in terms of usage — at least it’s my fervent hope that eventually I’ll be able to get rid of my piles of paper and be more electronic.
