  • Love how this looks, wonder about a 7th grader and durability just finished his IEP and he is needing something for all note taking next year. Handwriting anything is out of the question, everything is to be typed 0 improvement this year in handwriting. ATD is going to be used looking for best option. So far this has the most to offer in the lightest package.
