I'm currently using a thinkpad x41 to do my research to buy a mac. It would be a nice machine if it didn't have winxp tab ed as the OS. I love the ink function and I'm hoping to get a wacom tablet for my mac when my bank account has recovered from buying the mac.
My Googling mostly found articles from 2006-2008 and mostly ink didn't seem to work that well and when it did it worked like the ink function on my old Palm - it only recognized print rather than cursive script. Has anyone used a wacom w/ 10.6? Apple was supposedly hiring an ink engineer to fix things.
Also, what applications are ink-capable or ink-ready? Word and a photo program were mentioned - don't know if that's word for mac or word running in a VM. Are iWork programs ink-ready? Text editor?
