Hi there, I am currently trialing a hp 2710p. I'm typing on it right now actually I've got a week to decide whether I like it or not, if I can't get it doing what I want I'll be sending her for a refund. I like this tablet very much and I did get a good deal, but I need some advice after Google'ing and searching these forums for the better part of an hour. I will preface these points by saying it is currently running Windows XP (Tablet Edition). -I went through the wizard that popped up on start-up which taught me how to single click, double click, right click etc. What it didn't tell me was how to erase text. The HP pen provided has an eraser on the end, and also a button where my thumb lies. I've had no success using either of these to erase, in any of the programs currently installed (wordpad, built-in on screen keyboard, etc). So much as I've surmised, the thumb button occasionally acts as right click, and the eraser is the exact same input as the pen nib. How the heck do I erase what I've scribbled? -2710p shipped with Vista and I've seen people had success with Win7. Will this XP install do everything I need to do? I just need it to take notes at Uni, so whether that be adding handwritten notes to PDF/powerpoint/word docs, mostly pdf I imagine. Should I be changing the OS or will XP suffice? -When in "slate" mode the screen is stuck in portrait mode. There is a switch that looks like it is meant to change landscape <-> portrait. This does nothing. Is this due to XP, or should I be thinking the physical switch is broken? -I guess this last one I could look up, but thought I would add - suggest me some "must have" tools as a first time tablet owner! Something to write on PDFs, cool little games that use tablet input, etc. Thanks guys!
