    I like the note 10.1, I had one a few months ago but had to return it due to personal funds at the time. I'm looking in the market again for a tablet the same as or similar to the note 10.1, which means it needs some sort of active digitizer for input. I would consider a windows tablet as long as it isn't too much more than my budget and is very light weight.

    There's not much else out there on the Android front, but Toshiba recently announced their new Excite lineup including the Excite Write which includes an active digitizer/stylus and a 2560x1600 display.

    You can do a little research on it, but here's a basic overview video:

    Interesting....I didn't hear about the Excite Write yet. Can't tell if that's a Wacom pen or one of the newer N-trig pens. but it looks like it has an eraser would indicate Wacom.

    Aside from that...the only tablets that would really be comparable to the Note 10.1 price and size wise are the Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2 and the Dell Latitude 10. Both are 10.1 screens like the Note...but they use a 16:9 ratio instead of the Notes 16:10.
    Lenovo X-61 Tablet - 1.6 ghz, 4 gb ram
    Gateway C-120X - 1.06 ghz, 2 gb ram (dead)
    Hp TC1100 - 1.1 ghz, 1.5 gb ram
    Ls800 - 1.2 ghz, 2 gb ram
    Eee PC T-91, 1.3 ghz, 2 gb ram
    Ipad 16gb Wi-FI (it does count as a tablet)
    HP Slate 500 - 1.86 ghz, 2 gb ram
    Asus Ep121 - 1.33 ghz, 4gb ram
    Samsung Series 7 Slate - 1.6 ghz, 4 gb of ram

    That's a Wacom pen for sure. In fact, it looks exactly like their Tablet PC pen they've been using since 2005, right down to the clip.

    I'll be interested to see how much A15 does for the pen responsiveness over A9, even if it's a bit moot since even if A15 bring the pen responsiveness up to par with Clovertrail Atom, the art software available will take years to catch up to what's available in Windows...

    If you would like Windows, don't overlook the Surface RT now that they're dropping the price (16gb $349 or something like that). I tried out a Surface Pro for a couple days and, while it was a bit too heavy for a tablet and a bit too small for a notebook, the RT I believe is lighter weight since it doesn't need the power of the Pro. It's either 10.6 or 11" 16:9, and I have to admit I even liked the Touch cover (no moving parts on the keys) quite a bit. Of course, the Note 10.1 is still great so you could just grab another of those!

    Looks like "stylus required", kz Note 10.1 has one.

    My mistake, I suppose I didn't realize the Surface RT didn't have the Wacom; I just thought it ran a lighter-spec processor and a less powerful version of the OS.
