I don't know if this is a good solution or not, but I was recently
given a Bluetooth 'i-pen' that can add handwriting/sketching to any
PC. I haven't tried it yet, but it might be more cost-effective than
buying a tablet PC.

doing Prototyping?

As many others on the list we use ppt for demos/prototypes, often building
the screens by combining photoshop images with ppt's own text elements &
But we would like to use ppt for concept sketches too: can anybody recommend
a way to get that sketchty appearance without having to use Illustrator etc?
Is there any "plugin" that would enable the regular boxes in ppt to look
hand drawn? Is the inking feature of tabletPC's a way to go?
