- Ergonomics - can actually use natural handwriting rather than squeezing productivity out of a tiny computer. Less arm strain when using them for long periods. Better for your eyes as you can adjust distance greater. Ergonomically, they are alot better for OHS guidelines. (thanks @waxlyrical @tuna)
- See above - will save trees..... reduce conspicuous consumption of writing implements.

- It looks really really cool which is important when you're a wannabe 'geek girl'
- less strain on your arms when using them for long periods, better for your eyes as you can adjust distance greater. Ergonomically, they are a lot better for OHS guidelines.
