Yes, I want this. I was thinking of a laptop, but for now this will do:

http://www.amazon.com/SolidTek-DM-L2-DigiMemo-11-Inch-Digital/dp/B000LD25MC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=miscellaneous&qid=1221844714&sr=1-1

But Buy.com is cheaper, even though they don't have a picture (they are reliable, I've used them a number of times):

http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Solidtek-Acecad-Digimemo-L2-Digital-Notepad-DM-L2_W0QQitemZ180285907708QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item180285907708&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C39%3A1%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C240%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

There is a cheaper one, but it's pretty small and some people have complained about the size.

I think they have memory cards for that, though I'm no expert.  Cheesy I'll check out their site for all of the specs. I was thinking of getting a new Elo CRT on Ebay until I get this tablet going, but I thought this would be better for now since I'm used to drawing on paper.

These are the full specs by the company:

http://www.solidtekusa.com/dml2.htm

"A stand-alone device with storage capability that can be both the built-in 32 MB storage device in the digital pad and the expandable storage capacity by an optional Secure Digital (SD) memory card."

There are cheaper memo tablets, but they didn't get as good reviews:

http://www.amazon.com/review/product/B000LD25MC/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?%5Fencoding=UTF8&showViewpoints=1

Just a note, the hand written recognition software is extra and only a free trial is included. I already have a program from my scanner, so I'm all set with that.

In my opinion, 2 or 3 of the negative reviews sounds like they are from competitors (unfotunately this happens, and a few got very bad reviews). If you want to wait, I will let you know if it works well after I buy it.

My back is starting to act up again, so I might get the Elo CRT first. I'm busy with projects so I'm not sure how long the homemade Cintiq will take, but I think my back is tryig to tell me something, lol. When I get paid again I want to get this though. I need the Elo for my flatting and coloring by the way.

I'm waiting to get paid, so I just decided I would get the Digimemo. The 17" Elo I wanted was new, but they were sold (it was a discontinued item that's why it was cheap).  Roll Eyes

Well, it seems to get distorted while on the computer a bit. And when I draw on it there is a jitter. So I may just exchange it for a touch screen monitor. There weren't any reviews for the drawing part of it until recently, and he didn't like it as a tablet. But everybody else loved it for handwritting.

Though of course you do have to wonder if just buying a pad of paper and then scanning it afterwards might be as efficient.  Wink

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. Though supposidly they had software to help with the drawing, and it looked really cool, but was misleading. That was the only reason I bought it. I think some people like those things because they were portable though.

Buy.com was cool and they will let me get store credit for it.
