If you're not a "techie" there are a bunch of new tablet PC's coming up on the market. I'm not a "techie" but heard that they are coming up big time now. On the radio they mentioned tablets (becuase there's a CES [consumer electronics show] going on) and they wondered if they would overtake the PC.
So if you think about getting a tablet, look into seeing if it will allow you to take shorthand on it. And read shorthand on it.
"Gregg Shorthand had achieved the most extraordinary success ever attained by any system in the history of shorthand." John Robert Gregg, 1922
