Mailed my rebate 8/6. Got my $50 check today 8/20. Microsoft $50 rebate ends 10/1. Amazon $79.99 delivered - $50 rebate = net $29.99. EverNote Plus - $34.95. Freebee version of EverNote available. www.evernote.com My opinion - OneNote wins easily. The ability to combine text and ink in a single note as well to hand write over text in note, the ability to clip any part of the screen into a note and then hand write over the screen clip, the ability to clip an entire web page directly into a note and then to hand write over the web page (as well as to have the URL automatically recorded), the ability to link to files from within OneNote or to copy files into OneNote (and execute original application from within OneNote) - priceless!
