    Me thinks there may be an issue with the Clover Trail architecture. This is a repeat of the delays experienced when the Z670 OakTrail was released. Intel may be over-aggressively predicting launch shipments. This seems to be a pattern with not only the Atom launches of the last few years but also the 2nd generation "i" chips as well!

    I was thinking of buying a TPT2 or Envy X2 for Son #2 for the holidays and it looks like that will have to develop into a rain check.

    Doing the device shuffle again:
    *New* ThinkPad i7 Helix (on order) - phenomenal cosmic power
    HP Elitepad 1000 - my main device
    Dell Venue 8 Pro - my ultra mobile device (I cannot believe where I can stick this thing)

    If the delays continue, many Atom sales will turn into Core i5 sales

    Just got a DM from @Lenovo:

    Hi Kit. I heard late yesterday it's not happening for this Friday--so sorry. Best bet is late Nov or early Dec, I am told. More soon. --G

    Oh for F's sake. I just sold my Series 9 so that I could order one of these things on Friday.

It easily beat out the other options for my use case. Unfortunately the unit had run out of power so I didn't have a change to view its performance while inking.

    In terms of why I've chosen this one, my list is:

    1. It has a Wacom digitizer (apparently) which is essential for me. I have tried the n-trig devices and have vowed to never got back to these again. I live all day in OneNote taking notes and syncing them to my desktop. There were lots of machines with no digitizer or only n-trig pens.

    2. It has a really nice form factor. Its one of the smallest devices - comparable to the Samsung Windows RT device or the MS Surface. This is great for me as I will use it as a writing slate, for content consumption and occasional productivity machine. I will continue to use a desktop for the long documents and other heavy work. I don't see any problems stepping down from my current Series 7 Slate which now feels big and heavy.

    3. The look is great - very professional. Lenovo have avoided all the shiny aluminum and cheap plastic which appears on the other devices. My perception is that the unit is comparable to the MS Surface in build quality. This is a big plus for me, I don't want to be in meetings looking like I am using a laptop. I want the slate to disappear into the background as much as is possible. The smallest Fujitsu device also looked great but was n-trig.

    Cheers
    Is tpt2 in the MS stores? If so I will drive 40 miles to one just to see it myself.

    Not as far as I know. My order has just been pushed back to December - looks like Lenovo doesn't have these ready yet.
