Does anyone on the list have any experience with Tablet PCs? I know
many of the Tablets have guides to installation on Gentoo-wiki. Does
anyone have a personal story to share? Any suggestions of a good,
sturdy, Tablet that I should consider to buy?
I primarily am looking for a device to help note-taking in class. I
can touch-type in LaTeX quickly enough to catch up to most lecturers
using blackboards, but using a conventional laptop there is almost
no way for me to enter diagrams and simple illustrations. I won't
need handwriting recognition that much: I can still do my notes in
vim with LaTeX, and just have a macro that opens a small canvas for
free-hand drawing and embeds the saved image automatically in the
Mainly what I am looking for is some sort of
pen-mouse/tablet/touchscreen interface that makes drawing diagrams
simpler (compared to a touchpad or the little dit that sits between
the g,h, and b keys on a laptop). So if anyone knows of a laptop
with this kind of built-in interface, it will also be good.
I guess my question is: if I am looking to buy a tablet pc, and am
intending to run gentoo on it, what specific things should I look
out for (assume I know zilch. I'd rather have redundant information
than missing information)? Are there any particular brands or models
that are known to work extremely well?
