Hey people No I'm still around
Yes Yes Yes !! A Wacom would have been great but very tuff to do easily I'm working on it, but nothing is fast, cheap or easy. No the touch screen is not such a problem, and don't forget for a lot of folder manipulation, or editing and viewing photos which is what I do, I can get by using my finger. As far as writing if I keep the inkwell input window at the bottom of the screen my arm resting on the screen is not a problem.
