It's Like Writing On Paper. It's Not Paper

    The reMarkable tablet features an e-ink display similar to an e-reader (Amazon Kindle etc.). reMarkable is fine for reading but where it really shines is as a digital notepad.

    Boy I was like, yeah I would buy it for University, sounds nice, should be way cheaper than a tablet or convertable. But bruh for 600$ US i am getting a entry level convertable or freakin good tablet

    It's a really interesting piece of tech but it's just not worth the price tag. If it was around $100, I'd get it but you can get the basic ipad and apple pen together for about 400.... which you can use as an entertainment hub and using apps like good notes to make it your virtual paper.

    Not awesome enough to justify the price... Geez. Might as well buy a laptop.

    So you want to pay all that money for something that kind of feels like paper?

    Why are people complaining about the price? Your phone/tablet most likely costs more than this. Save trees, buy one!

    200$? Ideal.
    300$? Pricey, but still barely agreeable.
    *500$?* Fuck off lol

    It works really well. Very happy I grabbed one. If you do a ton of reading and marking up, it is well worth it. For me at least.

    Just get a cheap kindle for e-books and use plain ol' paper and pen. Use a phone scanner to digitize the paper stuff.

    Do you remember those things, where the pen was attached to it with a string and you could draw on it (only in black). And when you put your pen on the thing it looked like black dust coming together? Yeah that’s this thing but for 500 dollars

    You know there's screen protector for ipad which give the paperlike feeling like this thing basically fuzzing about. It's less than 30 bucks.

    How is the palm rejection on this thing? I rest my palm on the paper I write on, so this thing would be useless to write on if palm rejection isn't smart enough.

    For those dissing the high-priced paper tablet, it appears that you don't know what life is like as an engineering graduate student with ADHD.
    For me, this tablet is a godsend. I can carry textbooks as PDFs and highlight/draw/write notes on them, and I have a tool for taking notes or working out an engineering/math/software problem with me wherever I go. I have all my notes with me wherever I go, and they are all neatly organized in whatever folder structure I want. I used to lose my notes, notebooks, and forget to take my textbooks to campus or from campus to my apartment all the time. I needed a way to have a creative thinking/note-taking space with me at all times, and one that had ZERO distractions; as opposed to an iPad/Android tablet. Smart phones and tablets with all their fancy apps, internets, and disrupting notifications are the death of my productivity...but the reMarkable tablet just might be the solution. I'll find out when it arrives in a few days.

    $500/600??!! For that much you can buy a load of high quality pens and a million pieces of paper!!

    • cwuzii
      cwuzii Month ago

      Seth Nielsen yeah an not once have I, or anyone else, needed to. When there are other tablets they do the exact same thing as this on for $50, then this on at $500 is a massive waste of money. Fact.

    • Seth Nielsen
      Seth Nielsen Month ago

      Yeah but you can't carry all your textbooks and millions of pages of notes that are nearly impossible to lose inside of a 350 gram, 6.7 mm thick space unless you get this tablet.

    Im super interested in getting one, but from what I see here, I dont see the justification in the $500 pricetag.
    It's a electronic note pad.

    idk it does look really interesting. i prefer writing on paper over a laptop already, i wonder if this would feel enough like the former to get me to stop wasting paper and ink. at that price point it had fucking better lol

    Okay so a $600 tablet that can basically only be used for drawing and feels like paper or the brand new iPad for $300 that can do so much more and a $5 sketch pad and get this... it feels like paper 😱 whew

    They won't sell many at that price, they'll have to lower it to get them to move at all. I want one, but I'll wait for the price to drop--or I'll never get one. Not enough value for the money at $500+

      For someone like me who doesn't have space for real books, it'd be a dream to read comics that are in colour on such a display, especially if it's a 2:3 aspect ratio like a lot of graphic novels targeted at kids are published in.
      Edit 1 week later: by that, I meant books published in print in 6×9 inches

    You can buy "paper" screen covers for your tablets that do the same thing. Graphics drawing displays have done this for a long time
