Chapter 10. Using Office on a Tablet PC > Office 2003 and the Tablet PC

Office 2003 and the Tablet PC

Since the introduction of Windows XP in 2001, Microsoft has released a number of special-purpose editions tied to unique hardware designs. From an Office user's perspective, the most intriguing is Windows XP Tablet PC Edition.

In design, a Tablet PC is a notebook computer with a few hardware twists. The most obvious is the input device—a pen-shaped stylus that takes the place of a mouse and allows the user to select and manipulate text and objects, make menu selections, and click buttons. The pen also serves as a way to draw lines, sketch diagrams, and tap out text using an onscreen keyboard. Most importantly, you can use the pen to scribble your own notes, just as if you were jotting them down on a piece of paper.
