Having a Tablet PC Post-School

For my studies I obtained (with the help of my generous parents) a HP TouchSmart TX2z tablet:

During school, even with all its supposed drawbacks (see here if you need some examples), this computer served me well and I took many a set of notes for class with it.

I’ve graduated now, however, and I don’t take notes anymore. What more can I do with it? I’ve tried keeping a journal with it but if I’m at a computer then the temptation to type is large, especially when you can use Notepad as a very useful, private journaling tool. I’ve tried using it as an engineering brainstorming device but it’s easier to use CAD software or pencil and paper where I can use devices like a ruler or a protractor. I’ve even tried learning to draw on it but software that can use the pressure-sensitive screen is expensive and even then the control is not as great as with say, paper and colored pencil/crayon/markers/paint/etc.

At this point I’m at a loss for what I can do with it. Maybe I should just sell it so that I can use the funds to purchase a better laptop that doesn’t have important features that I will never use. I could effectively trade the tablet capability for a laptop that can watch videos without stuttering or maybe even play games.

That sounds like a lot more work than I’m interested in at the moment though – do any of you readers out there have any idea what I can do with a Tablet PC?
