If your PC doesn't have a touchpad you can buy USB ones

    This is a random Dell wireless one I found that can be added if you don't have precision-touchpad fitted device:


    Dell Wireless USB Touchpad
    Nice one, didn't know it existed at all. Can't find surface size, my guess is somewhere about 7 by 7", I could get used to that. Heck of cheaper and handier than touch monitor. Touch pads on laptops are much smaller.

    Seeing this short video I want one! Yes it looks about 6-7inches square.

    Logitech also do a touchpad, have had one for a couple of years now and find it very useful on a desktop with both the mouse and touchpad operative at the same time.
    Especially useful for flicking back through previous pages instantaneously.

    As to whether W10 will be a success, IMO a resounding YES.

    I would think this one from Wacom and designed with CAD in mind...it's £600-700 though. This one has accuracy down to 2048 pressure-steps pen sensitivity so you can get pretty fine lines and alterations. Cheaper ones will probably be too coarse for you. Google ' intuos 4 xl cad youtube' for videos of it to get an idea of its capabilities. If you want to look at Wacom's other range just Google ' wacom intuos pro'

    I have the Insider Pro edition installed - clearly identified as Pro, but no expire date.

    Looks like you have the TechNet Enterprise edition (clue: evaluation copy)
    Hi there

    I've got the enterprise edition --it shows ENTERPRISE edition clearly in the Winver command popup and an expiry date of OCT 1 2015. His doesn't say ENTERPRISE and it's Oct 02 expiry (Torrent / leaked build / insider build ??).

    Posted cliff's and my expiry and windows versions


    Cheers

    It's free for the life of the device. The subscription part is with other utilities.
