    I'm looking for a pen tablet that I can take to class with me, jot some notes down, come back to my room, plug the USB into my computer and load up my notes on my mac.

    So basically the tablet needs to have some sort of storage.

    I know wacom makes a lot of good pen tablets but I dont think they make any that have built in storage. Do you guys know of any?

    you jot notes on pda which converts to drawings or text, you sync pda with computer.

    Why not just write it on paper and use a scanner? Most good scanners come with some form of OCR software.

    I'd rather not waste the time every night scanning in my notes. Plenty of other things to do.
