Paper Saving

Conversion of laptop computers to tablet PCs on an attrition basis would allow users to easily record and store hand wirtten data, transmit that information to interested stakeholders and create a method by which the millions of documents that are printed to be red-lined can be worked in cyberspace without printing. According to Wikipedia an average user prints 28 pages per day or about 14 reams of paper a year. The actual cost of the paper only begins to account for the actual savings. Cost and energy wasted to recyle, waste into landfills, and the impact to the carbon footprint on the planet are a few of the major reasons for reducing the amount of paper we use each day.
