    110% AES v2!

    Whether or not it's custom tuned to ignore normal stylus's like the ZBS360G5 is... we'll have to see.

    The market is very pleased with HP's efforts. The other day when the Spectre was announced, HP gained about 2%. Yesterday, the big day for Microsoft, when both the Dow and Microsoft lost about 2%, HP held its ground and even gained 1/2 percent after hours.

    One thing not to like is the free-trial integrated VPN.

    We just got one in for certification testing. No results yet, but just looking at it, the display is gorgeous. I only wish it was 3:2 instead of 16:9 but the consumer market loves to watch videos on their laptops.

    PS: I find it interesting that companies are now putting screen to body ratio specs in their listings. Competition can be a good thing.

    Agreed on the aspect ratio. And how many Apple users (who love watching videos too :p) complain about the black bars on 16:10 MacBooks or 4:3 iPads, anyways?

    If you get the chance, please do some brightness vs. color-accuracy tests and also white uniformity and black crush testing, as this is one-of-a-kind OLED panel on the market right now.

    I intend to test it pretty extensively . In fact I plan to take it home with me tonight for some field testing :D

    BTW: In the tech notes it supports HDR10. so it definitely is going all in for video
    PS: Apple users don't complain... to apple anyway, they just say "thank you Tim may I have another..."

    One other quick comment. The screen is really bright. Even in the brightest part of our office, the screen is almost too bright even at about 30% on the brightness bar. That compares to about 70% with the new surface Pro 7

    Another reason why I thought it was totally unnecessary of them to make even brighter QLED screens on the GB Ion/Flex.

    Samsung, your OLED screens are great! Just use them! :p

    The advantage of 16:9 is that you can easily duplicate your display with a TV and use your tablet as if it were an Intuos.
