    Lightbulb touch screen monitor/windows tablet?

    Hi
    I hope someone can help please.

    We're looking for a product which will allow a tutor to handwrite comments on a word doc (or other office apps) and be able to save this information.

    We have SMART slates and this works ok, but you cant see on the slate what's on the screen. I also looked at graphics tablets, but the same applies.

    We had a look at windows tablets and found things like this (sorry i cant link as this is my first post) on amazon: Zoostorm 3310-9500 Will these allows annotations and will Word for eg recognise them?

    With handwriting recognition in office, i wondered if a touch screen monitor might be another solution. Would this allow a tutor to write on the screen and for this to be saved on the document?

    or if anyone else has any other solutions or recommendations for windows tablets, i'd be grateful.

    thank you

    On a talet PC running XPTablet edition with Office 2003 reveals a feature called "annotate" this will allow teachers to highlight and draw (so handwrite) comments and arrows underlines etc onto the word doc and you can show and hide this with the click of a button. I don't know how vista,W7 with office 2007 / 2010 will handle this. This was exclusive to xp tablet edition with office 2003 feature and could NOT be added to a normal xp machine.

    We have a few staff who like their tablets (proper pen ones, not touch screen). I swear by Toshiba's offerings, as they're tough and good value.

    I recently picked up another one from Ebay for £200. It's a Portege M400, with Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, 12" screen. Whacked Windows 7 Pro on it (which has all the tablet features of XP Tablet built in) and it's great. Annotating in Office 2010 is easy, and Journal works nicely for whiteboard work.
