I wonder how come there are not many options when it comes to scan or convert a device which could be connected to a laptop/desktop, which could -
1] Allow me to write with a digital pen on some special surface, which is connected to my laptop and thus converts my hand written notes to a pdf/jpg/word. (Microsoft's failed attempt at windows based tablet PC in past comes to mind, but not anymore)
Any such solution I can use with my laptop?
2] A document scanning device, apart from a flat bed scanner, integrated these days into multi function printers; anything that is portable enough to connect to my laptop?
