ThinkPad Tablet 2: Inking in Windows 8 (video)

Summary:The Tablet 2 from Lenovo has a pen option that brings inking capability in Windows 8. This video shows how well inking works on the tablet.

The ThinkPad Tablet 2 is a great tablet running Windows 8. It rivals the ipad in size and weight yet brings full Windows 8, including inking with the optional pen. 

The video below shows a walk around the hardware that makes up the Tablet 2 and demonstrates using the pen. The demonstration shows inking in Windows Journal, OneNote, and Microsoft Word, along with using the pen in place of a mouse on the desktop.

The Surface Pro from Microsoft is now available for purchase and comes with a pen. Inking should work the same on Microsoft's tablet as it does on the ThinkPad Tablet 2.
