    hehe.... I voice dictate on the L950XL. Works good. Cortana is reliable for voice dictation. However, can't voice dictate while doing diagramming or mindmapping, I'm afraid.

    Yeah, the keyboard still rules for anything of length since I touch type. For now, I just use dictation for short emails, texting, and short notes in OneNote when using phone or tablet, if my alternative is the on-screen keyboard.

    I'm still on the Note 2 w/ the Wacom pen.
    It was the perfect companion for the first
    Surface Pro that also had the Wacom pen.

    Now I have the Surface Pro 3 and the NTrig pen.
    Requires 2 different pens to carry and use the phone/computer.

    I wish they would offer a Wacom option on the Surface Pro models
    for those who like the active battery-less digitizer..
    It would be worth the additional ounces for the convenience.

    This is not all Microsoft's fault. Wacom apparently can be a tool (not in the drawing sense) and didn't even want it to be known the Surface Pro and Pro 2 were using Wacom EMR. Of course, Samsung owns a part of the company, thus we get the great (and tiny) S Pen to go IN the Note (properly) and the even better regular size pens, for their devices.

    Notebook = Case
    Sections = Court documents, Affidavits, Depositions, Witness statements, Prior rulings...
    I'm assuming you have a paralegal or intern that will scan all the paper documents and put them in the appropriate notebook section for you.

    But then again, INL.
