    F*ck me, these SOBs have USB C, 2 HDD slots, 2 DDR4 SoDIMMslots, and a dedicated GPU!!!

    It would be such tragedy if they didn't support Wacom AES...

    I think I will wait until these bad boys hit local Best Buy next month and I will take my camera and trusty Dynapad AES pen.

    The various Dell Inspiron 15 and 17 7000 configurations are now online at Dell.com.

    http://www.dell.com/us/p/inspiron-17-7778-2-in-1-laptop/pd?ref=PD_OC

    The 17-inch configs appear to be model 7778, ranging in price from $900 to $1350. None mention a pen option and the Active Pen's product listing still only mentions the 7568 under its compatibility list.

    And it has a numkeypad!
    Just saying

    Not that we'd use it in yoga mode anyway but I mean come on I can't be the only one who has to enter things into spreadsheets occasionally.

    Dell's Japanese site only lists the regular new 17". Not the 2-1n-1.

    Translating the Japanese comments and reviews on the 15" shows people talking (excitedly) about the stylus back in February.

    If the 17" 2-in-1 goes up, I expect we'll see some early chatter from Japan.

    If it doesn't have an active digitizer, would anyone still consider getting it?

    I know there's the option of getting the glove that covers the palm of your hand and then using some kind of stylus though not active

    The Inspiron 17 7778 will be in Los Angeles Best Buy stores this Friday for $999 (12GB RAM, GeForce 940MX, 1TB HDD). You going to take one for the team and check one out, @Shogmaster ?

    I was going to go Thursday. That's when supposedly my closest Best Buy has it. But I checked couple of days ago so maybe now the delivery was delayed to Friday...

    EDIT: Yep, it got delayed to Friday. Thursday plans ruined... LOL
