I don't know how it is today, but OneNote on tablet pc was doing pretty fantastic search of handwritten notes in ~2004 (back when I last used it). When I worked at MSFT, I took basically all of my notes in it.

Seconded -- OneNote was/is an amazing piece of software. I took all my notes for the CFA on it in 2008, and I used it to great effect apartment hunting off craigslist that year as well. My tablet died a couple of years ago and I haven't replaced it, or I'd probably still be using OneNote.

I've used a tablet PC for years. OneNote is truly powerful software. I pray for a convertible ultrabook. Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only one. So much hate for the lowly tablet PC.

Asus has a convertible ultrabook coming out sometime [1]. Too bad it looks like its just capacitive touch, no digitizer =/. Wish Lenovo would find a way to thin out their X200T's.
