Note taking and anotating

I haven't really looked at the ereader scene for quite a while, and I really lost touch with it, I must say. So I'm going to need some advice.

I go and follow university courses from time to time and I've been taking my notes (and anotatink pdfs) on a thinkpad tablet (x41t, under linux). It works fine, but I must say it is somewhat heavy to lug around and, more importantly, I get tired from looking at the screen after a while. However, I do love being able to write with a pen (it helps me memorize, which no amount of typing will do). For various reasons (among which, ease of classification and editing), I don't want to go back to paper.

So my question is : is there any kind of e-ink screen device that allows for quick jotting down of notes, and also anotations of documents? It appears that e-ink screens are fast enough now to do such a thing.

Thanks

Thanks for the answer.
Well, looking at the youtube review, I must say that e-ink isn't quite as properly "there" as I thought. It appears it is good enough for a quick, short note, but the delay would probably make it awkward for a long session while listening to a lecture.

I guess I'll wait for another year or two.

An alternative to a tablet (e-ink or otherwise) is the Livescribe pen. The pen records what you write, and produces a digital file that can be tranferred to a computer. There are hand writing recognition programs to turn your script into text. The pen can also record the audio from the lecture and link that to what you are writing.
