      Thanks - that's what I was thinking given my other computing requirements and the non-upgradability of the device.

      Thank you again, Shogmaster :) Is 4GB adequate?

        With the small price difference, I'd get the 8GB. You can find 8GB version for less than $600 new still.

      Thanks Shogmaster - never heard of the wacom key before but it looks useful. Is the Miix 700's M5 chip adequate or is the M7 needed? Also, is the Lenovo pen decent for sketching or is another preferred?

        M5 is plenty good. M7 would just eat battery faster. I can do 200 pixel complex brush on 7000x5000 canvas without effecting my line quality via too much lag. And with the Wacom Expresskey Remote, you can use the Lenovo pen wiut issues since you don't need to worry about its flush buttons.

      Hi Shogmaster,

      I'm looking to get a 2 in 1 for architectural, general sketching and general use & I notice you have a Lenovo Miix 700. How do you like it? Any major drawbacks? Is it worth getting or would you opt for another 2 in 1?

      Also, what apps do you recommend for sketching in Windows?
      1. Shogmaster

        Miix 700 for $600 or less is the best portable 2 in 1 for art bargain in recent memory. Mate it with Wacom Expresskey Remote and you are pretty much set. The free keyboard isnt fantastic in quality but servicesable after firmware update.

        Use Clip Stdio Paint in desktop mode, or Sketchable in Modern UI for best results.

      Hello there.

      I've been told that you have an HP EliteBook ( 2740p?) and i wanted to ask you for some advice about it before buying one.

      I'm switching from a Thinkpad Tablet X60 (for art), i hope you don't mind giving me some feedback. If i'm mistaken, then excuse me.
