I just bought a tablet PC. That is, a laptop with a screen you can draw on directly with an electronic pen.
My hope is that this will be revolutionary in enabling a more digital workflow for my layouts, while freeing me from my little computer corner and my CRT. Or it might just be a big waste of time and money. But I did ask around before I took the plunge, and most people who have them seem to love them, so I’m giving it a shot. It wasn’t really any more expensive than just buying a regular laptop (granted we already have 2 laptops in the house — I’m just saying it’s not as extravagant as it might be). Another nice bonus: it will allow me to do drawing & painting demos on a projector for some of my larger school visits, and it’s lighter than the laptop I currently take on those visits.
