    @Stompbox You should also keep in mind that larger devices are sometimes too big for economy seats on trains and airplanes. On cramped flights I've often had to butt the Surface Pro 4's keyboard up against my belly in order to be able to tilt the screen to the right viewing angle. Just opening and rotating a 15.6 inch convertible laptop can be an adventure in economy class.

    @surfaceproartist thankyou, that's sound advice. I think I should probably start out on the train with the ep121 first for a bit and then go from there. I don't want to be ejected from the train by my fellow commuters with the inspiron wrapped around my head.

    One of the things with this new job is it's public service and they have salary packaging as an incentive, and you can put money pre-tax towards a laptop. So I'm wanting to make use of that benefit, if you like as part of the trade off for the con of travel time on public transport. The idea of a larger stylus tablet has always appealed, and the 7568 because they seem such good value. But @Marty makes an excellent point about EMR vs AES.

    Thanks for the warm welcome @Marty. I was a long time lurker in the ep121 sub-forum. Thankyou also for the real estate comparison images. I understand the top one but not the bottom one, OH WAIT I JUST GOT IT! The bottom one is a 12.5" compared with the 15.6", right? Are there any particular 12.5" tablets you would recommend are worth looking into?

    Another thought that comes to mind is perhaps I should use the ep121 on the train and salary package a beast laptop to use at home as a desktop replacement. There was a monster lenovo I think mentioned in this thread but now I can't find it. A desktop would be good but leveraging the tax incentive on a beast laptop might be an idea (the salary packaging is specifically able to be used for a laptop, not desktop.)

    I'm embarrassed to say that I'm currently using the old faithful ep121 as my home computer (shameful I know).
    I would be using the desktop replacement laptop for shooting stop motion in Dragonframe and some after effects, video editing, that type of thing. No 3D I don't think. It would not necessarily need stylus, although it might be neat to have it for grease pencil planning in Dragonframe - but this would not need to be EMR. So a bit of grunt would be good and large screen, with option to plug in another 2. Anyway thoughts advice and comment welcome. I'd be interested in good value for horsepower rather than most costly monster.

    I just picked up one of these 7568 laptops second hand, and the stylus is super jumpy. If I go in certain spots it jumps from the middle of the screen to the top of screen, also the hover doesn't work very good. Is this screen broken? Should I just return it or talk to Dell?

    Thanks.

    If the cursor jumps from one part of the screen to another, it's likely defective. Make sure to update the firmware and pen driver and install fresh batteries. If it still happens, return it.
