    Same here, still sold on switch 7. 3:2, lighter, fanless, simply put, mobile. I have much stronger workstation at home with good old yiynova; now I'm looking for mobile solution and 3.6 pounds turns me off really.

    If I wanted a desktop replacement then I might seriously consider zbook2

    Talking about 16:9, it's really subjective; drawing in 16:9 made me do more vertical scrolling in landscape as well as horizontal scrolling in portrait. When I try my friend's SP, I feel much more comfortable with the drawing area not too wide or too short.

    Also allows me to see more line of codes while coding in split screen.

    Yes, I could definetly also live with that 4K 100% Adobe RGB Display. ;)

    That's the one thing, where I hope Acer won't blow it.
    Resolution is already not too great on the Switch 7 ... hope it has at least 100% sRGB.

    But the x2 is actively cooled and dead ugly.
    Also notably more heavy.
    So the Switch 7 still looks best to me.

    I rather like the design of the Zbook. It might be a different story if I ever get the use one in person, but I like the look of the angular edges.....it makes the device very distinctive. The added weight I can rationalize because of the Express Keys and all the ports.

    One thing that may be more positive in the Zbook's favor.......the kickstand. While they both have a very similar kickstand.......the Zbook's kickstand does look a bit more solid...I mean the kickstand itself is physically larger and has to support more weight, but the Acer's kickstand looks too meek and thin.

    As awesome as a kickstand is.....as most Surface Pro 3 and up owners can attest....having the device recline the second you apply drawing pressure gets kind of annoying since you have to be more mindful of how much pressure you're putting down. I'm only assuming this might be the Zbook's favor....but I'm curious which kickstand will truly be the superior one.

    ok stupid question. does the keyboard still work when detached like the HP zbook x2? I could care less about express keys i use old school keyboard hotkey's for speed.

    I don't think the Acer has that feature

    what a bummer and totally kills the form factor for creatives who use hot keys. hopefully it ends up being a feature.

    sweet tablet otherwise though. hits all the sweet spots for a light duty mobile portable workstation.

    It's saying it's unavailable or we don't have permission to view it. Where is the link from?

    EDIT Where it shows as temporarily unavailable:confused:
