    I'm not exactly getting the issue with resting your hand on the screen of a Tablet PC like the LE1600, which only has a Wacom pen digitizer. Palm rejection clearly isn't the issue at hand here.

    Is it because of the friction that your hand tends to have on the surface, making it bothersome to slide around on the screen (not to mention sweating all over it when the system warms up, especially since it's a slate)? I've found that a SmudgeGuard helps a lot with that, though you probably don't feel like spending $17-19 on a partial glove.

    both, but i use the onscreen keyboard
    a little bit more. like for this post. its easier
    to correct. i really like the handwriting for
    journal and one note.

    I have used the onscreen touch keyboard a few times but 99.99% of the time I use the TIP and write with the pen.

    OSK for me for one simple reason. Speed. HR is cool and all but slow and cumbersome. But that is not to say I don't want HR availible as an option.

    I have Windows 8 on my Samsung Tablet and where I have always preferred to write on other tablets, the windows 8 tablet (or maybe it is the samsung on screen) is so much like my ipad2 that I am using it more often than before. I had always preferred writing to typing in the past. This Samsung or Windows 8 on screen keyboard takes up too much room on my tablet. I am still working trying to get used to Windows 8 so I expect to struggle for a while.

    The poll did not include Dragon NaturallySpeaking. I find Dragon to be the highest productivity way to run my T4220, in tablet mode, with stylus in hand. I use Dragon both for running text dictation (e.g. e-mail) and for starting programs and selecting windows.

    For one-liners (like this), OSK. For anything else, I eject the Stylus.
