If this is actually capacitive, it may finally be worth looking at a small convertible tablet.

^ Yeah, until you want to ink on it. What's the point of a tablet without it?

Microsoft need to sort it out. Tablet products without a tablet OS because OEMs are passing on the cost of the upgrade to the consumer. This is the worst possible outcome. The aim surely must be to get the most hearts and minds focused on the positives of Win 7 rather than the negatives. MS really need to sort this farce out.

Hi Jkk, I am repeating a comment that I made on umpcportal:

A really helpful article will be a classification of touchscreen technology: resistive vs capacitive, active digitizer vs passive digitizer, single vs multitouch and so on. There are so many touchscreen products coming on to the market but its difficult to know for a general consumer like me whether they suit their use case or not. Some people are interested in taking notes, some are interested in digital drawings, some are interested in just general application usage using touchscreens. But not all devices are appropriate for every usage and its really difficult to know the difference :(

For example, if I want to take notes, which one should I buy : Archos 9? S10-3t? T91? T91MT? Gigabyte touchnote? Which operating system should I look for? Vista? W7 Home Premium? W7 Starter? Its just so confusing :(

How's the inking experience on this thing? Does it even come with a stylus, or is it strictly targeted at entertainment?

I know this is late, but all the items you listed are absolute crap for taking any substantial amount of notes. Especially this device, if the screen is capacitive and doesn't come with a dual digitizer, then it will not except stylus input.

Do some research for yourself, google it. Plenty of places have explinations. If you want a good inking experience, you have to step up to something with an Active Digitizer. The cheapest solution I can imagine is the Intel Convertible Classmate which has a single touch resistive screen that only accepts sharp point input so it naturally rejects your palm (one of the main benefits of an active digitizer). The other main benefit is that your pen input will be followed faster and more precisely with an active digitizer.

You SHOULD NOT Expect So Much From A NETBOOK!!!

just purchased one, and it's reasonably nice, but the basic model comes with Win 7 starter which doesn't support full tablet capacity... they have a Lenovo layer which allows for some functionality, but not enough. Great keyboard, nice screen, 10 hour battery life, but needs win7 home premium and 2 gig ram.
