    Need to buy another copy.

    I think it's OEM only, and a bit difficult to get hold of.

    Anyone know if XP tablet is resource heavy versus a standard XP edition?

    Not really, just adds some pen stuff and a few new (tablet specific) programs. All can be disabled if you want. Problem is unlike Turbocad, I'm not replacing my digitizer with a USB Touchscreen overlay so I still need most of the drivers and apps. Another issue to consider is the fact that every OEM has their own version of the OS. So I would think a generic TabletXP disk wouldn't work.
