You don’t need a tablet PC to get the benefits of a tablet PC.  If you have Microsoft Vista or Windows 7 you can enable the the tablet functionality.

However, to get the most out of the tablet functionality, it helps to have a tablet.  In the demo below, I hooked up an older Wacom tablet to see how it would function in Vista with PowerPoint 2007.  As you can see in the demo below , it works well.

The tablet functionality gives you a lot of neat features and capability.  One of the things I like is being able to add a personal touch with handwritten text and hand drawn arrows and circles.  It’s a great way to draw attention to the content.

I bought a used Wacom tablet, but you can see that the prices have come down.  It’s worth the investment.
