    I say don't do it. go to your nearest retailer, and do a test.

    Have someone talk to you relatively fast, and try and write down what they say. Now, stop every once and a while, and draw a figure, like a pulmonary function curve, or a action potential, or do an equation. You will rapidly see the disadvantages tablets present. I only take notes with my iBook when the subject does not lend itself to drawing, or there is a power point I can annotate, as the lecturer goes.

    good luck, YMMV

    Thanks Craig, that was the idea I was getting from reading reviews about them, but no where did they advertise them for college note taking.
