Very popular with the aged rellies who could never get the hang of using a mouse to move the pointer on the screen (probably why fondle slabs are popular with the same age group - when they can pry them off the grandkids!).
I used it as my travel machine for years and I've still not found a better way to give presentations - facing the audience drawing on the screen to highlight important points. It was still functional when we donated it to a IT charity shop five years ago (although Windows for Pen had not been updated very much...)
