Ixo said:Mine is very old, I've never quite got the hang of it, and I'd love to upgrade to something that allows me to draw directly on a screen display, but I can't deny it's usefulness within the limits of what the hardware can do.
Clippit said:In Scotland, "tablet" can also refer to a confection made from sugar, condensed milk, and butter that vaguely resembles an eraser if it were made of butterscotch. Hey, that gives me an idea...
Torzelbaum said:My work requires a physical ID badge for people in the office and it is used to unlock doors so this saves me from having to unclip my badge all of the time. And they can be fun to mess with.

Yimothy said:A larger version of this device is highly placed on my top 25 revolution supplies list, but here I'm talking about the one that lets you make straight cuts in paper. Very satisfying, but watch your fingers.

Ixo said:When the machine can staple, fold, collate, insert special pages, etc it's just nice.
Ah, the dream of a school with halfway adequate funding. Must be nice.A well run/funded school will have a print shop, where the photocopying gets done for you if you put in a job order. The nicer ones I've worked with, let you upload files remotely instead of giving them something physical to photocopy. Which is just straight up magical, especially for a modern educator. It's so nice to be able to upload a test or worksheet or whatever remotely, give the print shop detailed instructions of what you want, and then just have everything printed, collated, and even stapled, ready to be picked up when you show up for work the next day. It saves SO much time and headaches and I bet even money. Especially since you have pros handling the equipment instead of letting before mentioned stressed out, over-caffinated, over-worked teachers, most of whom don't know how these machines work, fiddle with and kick/slam expensive and delicate communal office equipment, and you're redistributing the labor to increase efficiency and job satisfaction.
