    <<...No Pen it seems...>>

    ...And without a pen, it's not very close...

    Hopefully, somebody will hack the drivers for use on the HD 500 GPU.

    My fear is the dumb down of the software industry:
    Adobe Photoshop CS5.5 Meets iPad - PCWorld

    If that software had being made for WP7 or Android, Jobs would go on stage to mock the rudimentary and unsophisticated nature of "drawing with fingers". And his yes-men in the press would all agree.

    I like the concept and interface(for the most part) of the Acer, but the lack of the a pen is a no for me. Now somebody needs to bring out a Fusion(Zacate E-450 would be awesome).

    The Latitude ST looks good. Except for the digitizer, which I agree, will probably be N-trig. Healthy competition to the Slate 500.

    Wishful thinking... I did not see anything Wacom related. Also, since this is not a Wacom size panel, this is likely either N-trig or the same manufacturer as their upcoming Win 7 Slate. The 'active digitizer' in their upcoming Win 7 slate will be neither Wacom nor N-trig but a 3rd party manufacturer.

    Hmmmm. Too bad. All of the comments were discussing a Wacom digitizer. Maybe the third-party digitizer will be better than the N-Trig solution.
