Wacom Bamboo Tablet

So in the continuing theme of touch enabled/inking enabled computing I give you the Wacom Bamboo Tablet and Touch.  I think this is a decent compromise for the desktop as I get to ink notes, but don't have to give up the mouse if I don't want to.  I would find it important to keep the mouse nearby as I am not a huge fan of using a laptop touchpad all day for my mousing, especially since your hands would not be in a similar position as you have them when you are using a laptop.
The other thing I would like to try with this is drawing.  I am a perpetual doodler, and hate "drawing" with my mouse.  The motions are very unnatural and uncomfortable so this might give me an option to draw without the strange wrist positioning I find myself using when I try to draw with the mouse.
