Re: Just purchased a Lenovo ThinkPad tablet... got some questions
Let me start off by saying that I bought it to replace a Windows 7 Tablet PC with Wacom digitizer. The tablet certainly cannot replace a full blown PC, but since I bought it I haven't carried my PC with me anywhere. Anything that cannot run on the tablet, I simply use Splashtop HD as a remote desktop connection. Other than one time that my power at home turned off rendering my PC unreachable, it has worked out very nicely. So far I have primarily used the remote desktop functionality to be able to do programming with visual studio, as well aas some Photoshop and illustrator work.
For taking notes i use Writepad Stylus. It is designed for writng with a stylus and has calibration built in. Also, it has palm detection. I should note however that in any app using the stylus disables any touch input. You have to have the stylus touch before your hand, but after that as long as the stylus doesn't move too far from the screen all touch input is ignored. The app has had 3 updates in the month I've had the device alone, with many great features added.
Overall I have been extremely happy with the device, and I'm looking forward to when the keyboard folio is available. It certainly can't replace a PC, but while not at home the remote desktop access has been more than sufficient.
