My new computer arrived yesterday. Well, technically it arrived on Monday, but I was out of town, so our UPS guy left it with our next door neighbor. I didn’t actually get to fondle the thing until noon yesterday.
As a reminder, I got the Lenovo X61 and so far it is everything I wanted. It’s got a very comfortable keyboard and is smaller than my Kowal Portable, but doesn’t feel smaller. The best part though is the tablet function. Oh. My. God. I may not be able to go back to a regular computer after this. It’s so easy to just grab something and move it on the desktop.
And then there’s the handwriting recognition feature. It is amazing. The interface is totally transparent and required no training. It can even read my cursive. I let my neighbor play with it while I was working on some prop things and he said that it felt almost like writing in a regular notebook.
I’m really impressed with it. I can’t wait until I get to try drawing on the thing.
