    Not only very small bezels, but also very little room to the side of the keyboard. I do like that, nice and compact. Not as great is that it appears to be a 16:9 screen..

    And the spec sheet: 1.3 kg, or 2.88 lbs. Not feather light, but still pretty good.

    For things that can tablet... give me bezels!

    For things that can tablet... give me anti-glare!

    For things that can tablet... give me 120hz panel!

    For things that can tablet... give me 600nits of brightness!

    For things that can tablet... give me at the minimum 16:10 ratio display!

    But that's what I'd expect from professional grade hardware.

    This looks good for a consumer level MacBook Pro fighter.

    I'm on board, except maybe the 120Hz, that's not critical for me at least. Anti-glare tablets are pretty rare though, probably because tablets tend to be used for media consumption, where saturated colors are nice to have.

    I'll add: for things that can tablet, give me 1.5lbs max.

    According to HP press release: Optional 400-nit display, HP’s first 4K OLED 13-inch diagonal display with True Black HDR for a 100,000:1 high contrast ratio9 for perfect blacks, anti-reflection display for outdoor viewing...

    But HP has a history of lying about displays being anti-glare.

    Just want post this for anyone wondering, this beauty supports the HP Pen:

    [​IMG]

    and Windows Central confirms it is included in the box:

    "Pen Yes, active (included)"

    Excellent. HP pushing the boundaries again, without missing the details. :thumbsup:

    (Now just give some of that love to the ZBook X2 and we'll be flying up to tablet heaven. ;))

    Ok, I'll give up the 120hz, but 75 or 90 would be amazing.

    I agree, it's really disappointing how rare a good AG tablet or hell convertible screen is. Even HP wants to punish those who dare, because it's a super hard to grab special order on the ZBSX360G5.

    A nice etched glass anti-glare with some nice AR coatings, can look beautiful. I'd say the AG Dreamcolour is easily better looking than the BV Dreamcolour, because its not getting destroyed by light reflections everywhere.

    As a Zbook Studio x360 G5 owner... I hate the battery in the AES 2.0 stylus. It dies in 7 days when not touched, and the one for the Zbook Studio lacks a paper clip... grrr...

    I want a user replaceable battery in my active stylus please..

    The Spectre X360 series has the HP Pen which is actually N-Trig based. I've used N-Trig pens for the past 4 years daily, and they last a good 3-6 months on a single AAAA battery.

    The AES Pen for the ZBook Studio X360 (4WW09AA) is actually one of the newer pens not listed among the bewildering array of pens HP makes, so it could that one is designed for higher polling frequency and the internal chip has a higher idle power usage.

    In any case, the hope is HP will update the ZBook X2 with the same OLED treatment and we can all switch to responsive battery-free EMR. ;)
