First: I've been lurking and reading the posts on this thread for a while now, and want to thank all the contributors. I feel like the posts here are really helping me weed out shady deals that I might have jumped on.
On to my question: I'm a grad student and would like a tablet to take notes on during classes, and markup .pdf docs. I know that the programs exist to do these things, however I played with a couple of capacitive screen tablets at best buy and staples, and the resolution of the touch pick-up is terrible (Xoom, iconia and dell streak). I could only write legibly if the lettering was 3in or bigger using my finger, and from all accounts the capacitive styli aren't great either.
A little internet searching lead me to the conclusion that the traditional solution on windows laptop style tablets is to use an active digitizer, but that a resistive screen might work in a pinch. Further research led me to the conclusion that the superpad/flytouch is probably the best of the resistive tablets out right now.
I'm hoping that one of you helpful folks has some experience or can test out how handwriting on the flypad works out using the stylus? I'm hoping to write in the 1/4 to 1/2in (.6 to 1.3cm) letter height range with reasonable clarity.
Any other input or thoughts would be welcome.
