The Vibe S1 is like a giant iPad. It is a computer, a monitor and a whiteboard.
It has a webcam.
It has apps like Zoom to have meetings and PowerPoint for presentations.

You don't need to use the Mac Mini to use the Vibe.
You can use your own laptop and connect via the Vibe Tap (requires USB-C Port) or via HDMI.

You can create a free vibe whiteboard account at https://app.vibe.us/login (This is not necessary to use the board)
Or just use the board as a guest

Annotation: you can annotate at any time during any application use. When you are done annotating, you can exit from annotation, or you can take a screenshot.
