including the price of pressure sensitive stylus and I'm off my budget. Maybe I should wait for the price to drop. Not sure how long that will take.
Anyone know much about lenovo thinkpad? It comes with a stylus and I think you can get a keyboard but not sure if it has a USB port though. Not sure how it compares to the transformer
Hello. I see you and I think a lot alike
Why are old models with digitizer going for a high price? Probably because they are Windows monstrosities, for more detailed info check my thread "Writable tablets". I think that the drivers for those types of pens were already available ( Windows ) so that's why you see them there.
The Thinkpad has a keyboard/case from what I've seen ( online ) comes close to the Asus. I agree that the Asus would be perfect if it came with a digitizer.
Here is a warning. The way a digitizer generally works is that there is a signal sent between pen and writing surface. So you will not be able to buy a digitizer and have it work with a tablet unless the tablet is designed to work with a digitizer.
I think in the coming months many tablet makers, including Asus, will be adding digitizers to their tablets. I have no real knowledge that they will, but I think the biggest untapped market for tablets are those that want digitizers. Low hanging fruit--so to speak.
So if you are willing to wait a little you may find many more.
