    Is There a Windows Pen Mouse for NON-Tablet PC?

    I have a netbook that I use during my commute. It is not a tablet, so does not have touch capabilities. It would be convenient to use a pen-like mouse to select and highlight text in documents, for example highlighting text in a PDF.

    Does anyone know of a device that would accomplish this? I searched for "pen pointing device Windows 7", but that, as expected, turned up mostly devices designed to work with tablets.

    Thanks!

    The only thing I could think of would be to buy a tablet, such as those produced by Wacom, for example. Google Wacom, visit their site and you will find many options, some of them quite portable. You won't be able to interact directly over your netbook screen, of course, but this is a solution that was used very frequently by designers, for example.

    Thanks, but that's not a solution for me. I just bought the netbook and am looking for a solution to use with it. I could have bought a tablet, but that didn't suit my other purposes, like programming, and I wanted a larger screen than tablets currently provide.

    There are no other options that I know of, except maybe this one: http://www.amazon.com/I-Pen-Digital-.../dp/B0000AC88K
