    It's a convertible so it has a keyboard, HA!

    It is quite nice to have for data entry that does not express itself easily to a keyboard and too damn slow for a trackpad or mouse, such as a table or flow chart.

    Good buy though. I've wanted one of those for that reason for ages, however my handwriting is atrocious!

    (yes, I typed all this out on my keyboard)

    My handwriting is horrendous as well, but for some reason it looks better on the tablet than on paper.

    One thing it does well is, the longer the word, the more accurate the conversion. It matches everything you enter across the language's dictionary. That wreaks havoc for URLs, e-mail addresses, code, etc., though, because it tries to guess from the dictionary instead of more intently reading your handwriting. It's also quite overzealous with spaces, especially if it doesn't recognize a word. You can edit each individual character in the word but there is no easy way to quickly merge words together.

    It's not meant for long input, though (and I don't use it for that), only quick notes, mouse-only comfortable browsing, and entering data not easily done through a mouse or keyboard.

    Plus it has INKBALL!
