The link below has a virtual demo where you are "trying out" the Tablet
PC.  So maybe you can figure out your answer.  Otherwise, head over to
your computer retailer.  They should have one in stock.  Come to think
of it, there is probably no "answer" to your question since each
computer vendor (HP, Acer, Fujitsu, etc.) implements the TabletPC
differently.  I wouldn't think all of them would make the mistake you're
talking about.

...again, veering off topic, but did anyone who saw one happen to notice

whether it still uses the quaint 'scrollbar' paradigm that the Newton
didn't need? I ask because my Pocket PC has been designed to be
unusable in that in order to use the scrollbar, it involves totally
the screen with the whole of your hand, so you don't know where to stop.

Unless you're right handed, I suppose, but I wouldn't know about that
sort of
