If you don't see a stylus, they did it wrong. Unfortunately given the Windows 7 on here, I would expect to be able to use the input panel with a stylus to take advantage of that particular 'Tablet' feature built into the OS. The tablet entry panel is really not designed for finger input, though I believe you can enlarge it. Most all of the Office products are 'ink' aware, and work quite well with a stylus. Not so much with a big fat finger, or the typical capacitive screen stylus. Those are much like working with a crayon, if you are trying to write.
I think it is a shame that the iPhone philosopy has permeated touch thought as much as it has. It is a great concept when really mobile, to not have to pull out a stick. A finger touch interface makes sense in that environment. It is also convenient for gross selections, in a media centric scenario. For detailed interaction on a larger scale, most folks are comfortable with a pencil or pen. Been doing that since first grade, or before. But I guess if Jobs says everyone wants to fingerpaint, it must be true.
Really wish there would be more choice in the slate style Windows Tablet with respect to pen input. AFAIK the HP Slate is the only one, and I believe HP is the only one making convertibles with (Wacom) pen support.
