    Hello, i am computer science a student and i am looking for the best tablet for handwritting. I would like to replace all those notebooks with a tablet, i should be using it in lectures. So i am not looking for tablet with handwritting recognition software, just the one which has a good screen to use with stylus. Also i don't need some fancy 23ghz quad-core proccessor with 4096 nVidia gfx that can run the fanciest fart app lol. Just something that's best for handwritting! Also i am still not sure about the size, 7" is of course better for portability, but 10" might be better for all that writing and sketching of electric / logic circuits etc...Any sugesstions or comments?

    EDIT: lol sorry about the 'handwriTTing' typo, English is not my native language.

    I would think you would want a tablet with a digitizer layer such as the new Lenova Thinkpad tablet or the HTC Flyer (which is a seven inch tablet and the price was recenty lowered from us$499 to $299)

    i'd suggest you to buy something you really in need, just as what you said, a 10" might be better for writing... and undoubtedly, you need to buy a tablet PC with better capacitive touch sreen.
    hope you can find what you want!
    PS, we have a big sales promotion for android tablet PC recently, you can have a look! Good luck!:)

    Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet do pretty good job converting english writings. But it is quiet expensive and locked down. Also some apps crashes with errors...

    I have a Flytouch3/Superpad II, which is a Chinese pad with a resistive screen. Why resistive? Because you can get fine-point control with a stylus. I'm an artist, and drawing/sketching is important to me. For a long time I've had a retractable pen/stylus combo (Pilot Pentopia), which works very well. The big secret, however, is not the tablet but the SOFTWARE. I have finally found the app that handles writing very well for note-taking: Maple Paint (and it'll also take keyboard input for quick typing - I have a USB keyboard/case.) Also, a paint/drawing package that does very well for sketching is Canvas Pro. Hope that helps!

    I would recommend an actual WINDOWS PC Tablet -- Gasp!

    Something like this:



    The reason being is you get what you pay for.

    I know you stated you don't need something this powerful, but if you can afford it, the review highlighted why a lot of digital artists prefer this tablet to anything Android has to offer at the moment. Also, it would be a good long-term investment if digital art is your main occupation vs. buying a cheap tablet and having to upgrade later on.

    Just my two cents...
