Finding a comfortable way to use the tablet, I put mine up on an angle, I
have a V shapped desk and my tablet fits quite well on the desk edges and
the bottom rests on the keyboard ledge and it seems to be at the perfect
Its so much faster using a tablet/pen than mouse. I never used the mouse
that comes with the tablet, I prefer my logittech trackball, almost time for
a new one, my scroll button is worn out.
