Help us pick out a digital notepad
January 4, 2006 8:38 PM   Subscribe

My partner is looking at buying a digital notepad/tablet, but we don't know much about them. Specifically she is interested in the ACECAD DigiMemo 692 from Google suggests that it's a decent piece from a crappy company. Does anyone have any experience with this (or other) digital notepads or this (or other) Canadian suppliers?

I'm on my second Toshiba TabletPC and I've loved them both. They're durable, powerful, and they've got a great gee whiz factor.

Verify that TigerDirect is an official reseller of that device in Canada. I bought a Rio Karma from them a couple years ago, and when it came time to get warranty work done, Rio tried to back out of their end of the bargain because TigerDirect was a "Grey market" retailer. TD has GREAT prices (usually)w, but pretty horrendous service. However, none of the other online retailers I know of in Canada (, seem to have that device.

Becareful with shipping too. I've tried to order smalish stuff from them only to discover than S&H would be more than the item cost (for a $45 dollar item). I've found that it's often cheaper to buy from the States and pay a broker, duties and US shipping than to buy from Tigerdirect in Canada.
