Perhaps more than any other computer, tablets are very personalized machines.
If you’re like me, when you get a new electronic gadget, you open it up and start using it right away, casting aside any instructions or tutorials until something doesn’t seem to work or is too convoluted to figure out after an hour of tinkering. I recommend you put off this urge for just a few minutes with your new tablet. The built-in tutorials provide some practice with the pen that will greatly improve your first impressions of your new machine. Once you have some fundamentals down, you can experiment to your heart’s content. There are also quite a few customizations you might try that can make your tablet easier to use.
