i have searched the forums thoroughly on incoming OL laptop info, and have no clue why you bought a tablet. From my best guess you are spamming or a moron?
No need to be a jerk -- and I am neither of what you say. To answer your question, I really
liked the implementation and use of OneNote here:viewtopic.php?f=22&t=127496&hilit=Onenote
This specific PC has the multitouch pad, which I really liked, which is plus imo since I'm not to fond of the small touchpads included on the majority of current laptops. I do really like the touchpad on the MBP -- this is another factor that led me to the x220. Actually writing notes, instead of typing them, seems to help me remember material better. The downside is I hate using paper (and always throw away the notebooks). This is why the usage of Onenote in the above post really impressed me. In fact, I never used one note till I read that thread. Since then, I have started finding ways to use it within my non-profit. Linking to all the relevant cases and information in there has been a huge time saver.
I've been married for almost six years. My wife agreed to work while I go to school, however, she basically informed me that much of my time 'researching' will have to be done at home instead of in a library. At home I will have access to dual screen 24" monitors etc. that will certainly make it easier to do the work (so far as I am not distracted). There are a few responses to tablet in this thread. However, many of them in response to tablets more like the Ipad. I guess I could better direct the question to the only thing pressing me right now. How important do you think it is to view documents side-by-side when conducting researching and typing in
class, and if you could not do this, would this break the deal on your laptop purchase?
Additionally, I have plenty of other uses for this laptop. I still have a non-profit for civil rights to manage and a second job as a DUI investigator where the drawing capabilities would be awesome for documenting scenes.
