    That's intriguing - but I've been burned on imports before so I think I'll wait and see what develops...

    It's OK - I would put it on par with N-trig Gen 2, just compared to my Surface Go it's not as enjoyable to ink on it, I still do it and the much power in a small 7" is really amazing. My current setup is I use my Mix 2S Yoga attached to the mobile 4K monitor with an external keyboard and mouse and use my Surface Go next to it for markups and OneNote...

    The price is really high though for the new i7 version....you are paying twice as much over the i3 version for a net of ~11% performance boost and it is still hamstrung by the Intel 615 GMA

    Its not worth the price bump for the i7. Its not really a real i7 anyway, its a Core i7-8500Y which is just a rebranding of the m5 & m7 Core M tiers integrated into the same Core i5/i7 marketing pitch. I doubt there would be much of a performance bump from the m3 option since its still at its core a Core M.
