    Hi all, I'm looking for a good stylus to use with the iPad 2 to take notes and to make annotations on documents. I'm an teacher and a grad student, so I do much writing. :-) Can anyone make recommendations?

    I ordered one as well. I've been watching this one for a long time and now that it comes so highly endorsed by a pro, I had to get it!

    The black one is on sale at Amazon right now for $25.56 with free shipping.

    That's exactly where I ordered it from, too. With the sale combined with no sales tax, we saved some bucks!

    Which, in my world, means I can buy another nifty accessory with my savings!

    I don't like how the targus one is sort of fat...I clicked on that link and saw right away that the tip is narrower, I ordered two!

    I just got my Bamboo stylus and have been playing around with it. WOW! It's totally worth the money - so incredibly useful for note-taking and annotating, not to mention drawing and just plain doodling.

    My Bamboo arrived today. Wow! It's really high quality! I have kind of a pen fetish, so I'm pretty picky. I'm very pleased with it!

    I recently bought a Jot and wow is it ever nice! It has a little plastic disk at the tip to keep your contact flat on the screen, but it's clear, so you only see the point of the stylus where it makes contact.

    Very pleased!

    To me that one looks like a chunky crayon. I like the Jot because it gives you more precision. This one looks like it will give you less.

    I've not seen the Jot before, going to google and add a link in this post :

    Here's the link to the "jot stylus" that Alli thinks looks interesting, I agree, it does look pretty awesome as well!
