Laptops and tablets are useless for taking notes especially at the speed I need so I'd far rather just print the power point and scribble over it.
If it can download and handle power point files, gets a kindle "app", possibly allow me to hack it and use as an input device for my pc (just for doodling when bored). I'd defo get one. I can always just get a new phone for wifi tethering (our uni needs a software download to access the wifi) and all media necessities for travelling in and out and it leaves my netbook for when I'm actually sitting programming.
Problem I have with a tablet is it overlaps many phone and laptop features but doesn't do them well enough to replace the need for me carrying either device. The only thing I would say a tablet device is better for is larger viewing area for media and easier to use on the bus than a laptop but other than that a phone and laptop does everything. At least the eee note removed the need for pens and paper and helps keep things neater. I'm torn too if I should get this........time to play with it in shop I think

Iv been using mine at Uni and I'm so used to it now that I cant go to a lecture without it. lol
As for PC input, you can do that now, but with app you have to buy.
oh yeah and something the smartpen has over this is the wow factor people see it and they freak out and think its magic :D

Do you need a type of notebook with all those drawings in the botton to make it work correctly? Because i live in brasil and importing notebooks would be a pain. How potent is the microphone? do i need "to smell" the teacher to record something he is saying?
Anyway, I will buy one of these two, so any help would be nice. Thanks ;)
