    I notice on my XT that the pen only gets about 10px from any edge of the screen.

    Just Curious. Thanks!

    That's a flaw across all active digitizers. Mine _will_ go to the edge, it's just inaccurate to the point of being useless.

    Cool. Just a curiosity.

    I keep going off my screen protector thinking the pen is going to go further :rolleyes:

    i'm not sure that's accurate dmlerner, when i put my pen on the edge of my screen on the x61 tablet i see the representation of the pen, the diamond is split by the black lining surrounding my tablet, and i can write at the very edge if the page extends there.

    I agree with DrTigerlilly - I can use the pen accurately to the very edge of the screen on my Gateway C-141x.

    Full screen snip. Maybe a Dell Latitude XT limited issue then?

    Try writing the letter "a" right at the very edge.
