I just bought the Examples and Explanations 1st year pack, per PSII instructions. Should I buy Gilbert's first year pack too? Is there a real difference between E&E and Gilbert's Law Summaries?

Exactly how I feel.

Sticky Note is a new windows thing. It comes with Tablet Edition. It's basically like post-its for your laptop, which is way cool, because I'm a post-it note freak--I have them plastered all over my desktop monitor.
Once you get your tablet, go to Microsoft's website and download the "Tablet PC Experience Pack" and the "Tablet PC Power Toys". These are all free, Microsoft-sanctioned items that will really add to the computer. The Experience Pack has an awesome art program, free crosswords, and a program that let's you write on your desktop, like it's a chalkboard. The Power Toys include a lot of free games.
I've got a Toshiba Satellite R10. I also ordered it off the internet without ever having seen one, and I am soooo happy with it. I've only had it about two months, but I take it everywhere. It is seriously the best computer I've ever owned--it does so much!
I'm gushing. Good luck, and let me know what you decide. If you haven't already, check out www.tabletpcbuzz.com.

No, GoBinder does not have the recording feature built into it, but if you're getting a Windows Tablet Edition with your Tablet, then you will have another program that's built in to Windows, called "Sticky Notes," that will let you record audio, even if you're in another program. That's what I intend to use to record my lectures. It records pretty smoothly, and I've found that when I record with OneNote while taking notes, the recording tends to be glitchy.
The only drawback is that OneNote will let your record video rather than just audio, but I don't have a digital video camera, so this isn't an issue for me.
What kind of Tablet PC are you getting?

I totally take it back.
I just downloaded GoBinder's trial. It will sync my notes with my Palm! I can't believe it!
I'm going to use it for a while on the demo, but I think I might recommend this. It's just going to be hard to justify buying it when I already have OneNote for free...

My Tablet PC came with OneNote, and I love it because it integrates so well with all of the other Microsoft Office Features. I can put things I'd like to look at when I'm studying in my calender or To-Do list in Outlook, and then sync them directly to my Palm, so I don't have to worry about transferring stuff between different places all the time.
I guess it's just personal preference. I've never used GoBinder, so I really can't compare the two.
How's Washburn? Do people like it? I just got in...
Also, does anyone know anything about when they give out scholarship decisions? My acceptance letter didn't say anything about it, and I'd be disappointed if I didn't get anything.
