Tablet Confusion for Lecture Capture
January 20, 2011 - 8:45pm

Please help.

What I Need:

The ability for faculty to write on PowerPoint slides during lecture capture recording sessions (ECHO 360 and TechSmith Relay).

What I Think I Want:

A cheap Windows 7 tablet computer with stylus. I just purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3 Laptop for $359. I trust Lenovo, and want a stylus capable Windows 7 Tablet at somewhere around this price point.

Why I'm Confused:

Seems that the iPad has changed the game of what a Tablet is all about. All the development seems to be on iPad killers, instead of the integrated Tablet functionality provided by Windows 7. Everything new seems to be touch screen, not stylus driven.

I can't find any reputable and recent reviews and recommendations for a new netbook Tablet with a stylus.

What I Want to Know:

Are there new netbook Tablets (stylus capable) coming out of CES 2011? Is there a good and cheap netbook Tablet that I should buy now, or is a big crop of these devices about to arrive?

Is there something I'm missing?

Do you know of a better way to capture annotation on a PowerPoint during lecture capture sessions? I don't like the little mouse tools, I want to be able to use a stylus..
