There it is. It’s looking nice.
I wonder how it will handle diacritics.

Lots of skepticism in the AlphaSmart forum regarding the pricing and capabilities.

Unless you absolutely need 100-hr battery life I think a comparably-priced Chromebook with 10-hr battery beats this in many ways.

I think part of the problem is the Freewrite folks expect you to draft your MS on this with certain specific workflows.

My Neo was always just another general purpose tool. It carried the load when my workflow forked away from my desk.

These days, I write differently. Instead of outlining, I write notes flying in coordinated confusion. Then I refer to that mess while I write.

If what I’m writing won’t distract me from the Internet, I probably shouldn’t be writing it.
