    I recently bought a MBP and made the decision to loose the papers and go fully digital in the classroom. Notetaking has never been more efficient and fun, but there are a few issues I have to ask about...

    Often while taking notes in class, I find the need to draw certain things like graphs and diagrams. This is very cumbersome even with a bluetooth mouse, let alone with just a trackpad and your finger. I need a "stylus-like" pen device that I can hookup to the MBP that works with its trackpad to navigate the cursor. I don't need a 100-200 stylus+tablet. I only need a small pen like gadget. Do they even make this thing?

    unfortunately I don't think such a product exists :(

    However, tablets like the wacom graphire are under $100 and are relatively flat. I use my intuos tablet for notetaking sometimes (e.g. for math classes) when i'm using my MacBook as well.

    There is this from Logitech. But it is $150USD. I m sure there are similar products but I picked the first one google came up with. Just search google for "digital pen"

    Paper and pen my friend. I love my laptop, but it can replace a simple paper and pencil. I actually only use a computer in lectures. In seminars, etc, I prefer paper and pen.


    BTW, I never have room for a BT mouse in class anyway. Desks are tiny.
