This is a great post at the Penny Arcade showing how the Surface Pro works for artists using the pressure sensitive pen. Yes, the pen could be better quality, but the fact it works this well has some real benefits over the finger-tappers. Many people are visual learners (me). We don’t like typing very much and we don’t like reading in a linear fashion. We like to draw and sketch our ideas. It seems interesting that the Surface Pro and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 are pen-devices. Mentally, I feel better when I have a pen (especially an ink-nib pen) – and to be brutal, I hated that Apple reduced me to a finger pointer.
