    For those curious, the wireless chip is the Broadcom BCM4330.

    Preliminary battery tests indicate about 8-8.5 hours of web browsing/emailing/writing. This is with brightness at 50% (200 nits).

    Then again, my battery gauge might not be accurate. I haven't run it down to zero yet. The gauge drops faster from 100% to 90% than from 90% to 80%

It is slightly slower, likely due to the Win 8 Pro. I'd say the Acer has better screen quality--brighter screen with more realistic colors. It's fairly significant just looking at the desktop wallpaper which is a nice picture of a mountain landscape. The Lenovo also is yellow tint biased, whereas the Acer looks slightly blueish.

    Just tried the pen, which is the main reason I bought this--compared to my Vaio Duo, it performs wonderfully. The actual accuracy needs work when the pen is tilted to the side when writing but it is sufficient and I didn't have many accuracy mistakes. It is way better than the 500T. The pen rejection seems to start a lot higher up than the Sony and the Samsung, which is good for Windows Journal (which I prefer over OneNote). Suffice it to say, I wrote a paragraph and had no rogue palm marks on the screen, something I could never do on my Sony. I didn't notice much lag (there was a TINY bit but nothing to write home about). Oh, and I can confirm other Wacom pens work on the screen. So this is indeed Wacom!


    Thanks Guac--I was waiting for a little bit more data on the pen--I mostly need it for grading papers and notetaking. I was interested in elitepad 900 because the 16x10 is better for work with documents but it does not have wacom pen. I also waiting on the surface pro----but decided it would be too heavy potentially for long stretches and the pen is an unknown factor there. So I newegged my one with overnight delivery--probably won't ship till Monday but will have on Tuesday. Thanks so much for the information!! I had a Sony too--but the ok but not great ng trip pen/digitizer and the weight and the 11.6 inch awkwardness whiile holding----I sold it.

    Can anyone confirm that models ordered without a pen don't have a digitizer layer built in at all? This rumor is currently making the rounds in the German Thinkpad forum and the US Lenovo forum... even conformed by Mark-Lenovo

    Did a factory reset and installed the latest drivers. I am consistently burning through 16% of the battery every hour with the brightness at 50%. I'm doing nothing other than basic tasks, such as web browsing, emailing and reading texts.

    I consider 6.5 hours of battery life for basic tasks to be unacceptable by tablet standards. My ipad Mini gets 11-12 doing the same things. The ipad 4 gets even better.

    I'd give it more time. My Acer ran through the battery a lot faster in the beginning than it does now. Realistic battery life with work should be about 7-7.5 hours.

    I used my Tablet 2 last night for about 30 min and it ran down about 6%, then another 3% overnight (8 hours). It is also handling a full OS and Windows is fairly battery hungry.
