I for one don't sketch digitally using a tablet PC but over the last few years a number of posts here have been done this way. You might consider going back over past sketches and through archives.

Some of the benefits Peter says are ease of erasing mistakes, modifying the brush properties of the stylus, the ability to zoom in your sketch while adding finer details more exactly, and being able to save your sketch as a template or basis for future sketches. That latter bit was intriguing because it can be used for transits, terminator movement and shadow changes in the same area over the span of time, eclipses...and to re-visit deep sky objects if you were unable to complete your sketch for whatever reason.
The big drawback (other than not knowing about the brightness of the backlighting) is that you won't have an original hardcopy of your sketch.
