“I am impressed with how “smart” the Bamboo Spark is, not only can it take a pdf of my notes and send it to my laptop, it can transfer my notes into a word document where I can then add or edit anything I have written during class. This is a great feature when it comes time to writing an essay, because you can use your notes as an outline to get you started. My friends have been loving my Bamboo Spark because if anyone misses class, I can easily email them a pdf or a word document of that day’s notes.”

“(When) I use the Spark in class, I can write everything down by hand (which is better for your memory, by the way), and then keep it on file for when I need it at the end of the semester. Best of both worlds, right? It’s also a lot lighter than my laptop, so I can just (carefully) throw it in my bag and go without having to decide which books or items are expendable for a long day walking back and forth across campus.”
