I'm looking for a 2 in 1 type computer that I can take class notes on with a stylus but also use as a laptop. This seems like a good deal an in my price range.

You will find lots of 2-in-1 laptop at this price like the Inspiron 13 series, HP Pavilion series but when it comes to build quality, durability, battery life and ease of use, this Thinkpad line is hard to beat. It has either a mSATA or M.2 slot. So you can actually add a SSD to improve the performance. 240Gb SSD now available at $50.

I like this one alot because of the bigger screen and number pad. http://slickdeals.net/f/9008115-acer-aspire-r-15-2-in-1-15-6-touch-screen-laptop-499-99-after-college-student-discount-code?src=catpagev2
What do you think in comparison?

Warranty, waterproofing, durability, keyboard quality. All the things that actually matter when it comes to a laptop, Thinkpad gets right (even if Lenovo doesnt).

Do the others even have pens and digitizer screens?

I'm typing on mine right now - I got it from Lenovo refurbished for $480 and I'm pretty happy with it. A couple of minor things:
1.) My stylus doesn't calibrate correctly, so the accuracy at the edges of the screen is always a little off (center of screen is fine)
2.) Keyboard travel is not as good as a bigger Thinkpad like the T-series
3.) Get the 8 gb model, because RAM is soldered
4.) Screen colors are a little off - mine was very warm - but calibration improves this
5.) Battery life is decent, although not MBA-level. I get probably about 6 hours on a charge.

That Laptop is nowhere near to Thinkpad quality. Acer Aspire is a decent Multimedia Laptop at its best. It has less battery life, not so good keyboard and a horrible trackpad. Check in here only and you will find everybody actually recommends to use a separate mouse with those acer laptops. They are decent for playing games and watching movies but nowhere near to be a workhorse like thinkpad.

Looks like I should have bought it yesterday. Hopefully, I will see it again for around this price.
