Must Have Gadget for Lawyers (and Profs?)

The ABA Techshow wrapped up last week with a presentation on must have gadgets, The Gear Report --
Tools, Toys, Gadgets, and Gizmos
.  As I looked over the ABA Journal's coverage of the presentation, I noticed several gadgets that would be helpful to law professors.  In particular, a tablet for your desktop might be helpful for digital commenting:

As more lawyers embrace digital note taking—a push the [presenting] duo credits to the ubiquitous iPads and tablets in the marketplace—there are larger wireless writing tablets such as the Wacom Bamboo tablets and styluses that can turn desktop computers into a virtual canvas. They’re particularly helpful for reviewing briefs and other documents, Petro said.

I currently comment using bubble comments but a tablet would allow free form markup, arrow drawing, etc.  These functions are available on iPad but many professors who comment digitally use a laptop or desktop to do so.  A tablet might be a further step toward integrating the platforms.
