IT'S HERE!


My new HP laptop arrived today. I haven't had a chance to do anything but charge it and try out the handwriting. But how amazing is that-- with my total crappo handwriting, it instantly selected each word correctly. goodbye keyboard, hello little tablet friend!

I simply don't understand why you haven't had a chance to do anything but charge it and try out the handwriting! Laziness, I suppose. (funny joke).

Sally, this is exciting. But what do you mean when you say: "my total crappo handwriting, it instantly selected each word correctly." Do you mean it transcribes your handwriting into type? I like this: "goodbye keyboard, hello little tablet friend!" Tell more about drawing & writing directly on the screen and how that is.

Yes Linda, as I wrote the scribbly word the typed word appear without any suggestion from me. I'm just installing the free version of Painter now and will try drawing later today.

Who hoo!
Welcome to Club Tablet.
The handwriting-to-type thing is pretty cool. One of those wow, it really is the 21st century! things.
One warning- it gets confused with foreign and nonsense words. Most of my password are the latter, so I'm glad it comes with a keyboard too!
Looking forward to what you draw today...

A mouse is bad for drawing, a tablet is super for drawing....

But Sally? Don't sell your friend the Keyboard short just yet! :)
