    this Switch 7 black is near perfect for a tablet / pc hybrid.

    the drawbacks for me is the battery life is probably 5 hrs maximum and its a bit heavy for 13.5" device if you include keyboard.

    Wacom EMR is showing itself to be "professional grade" stylus now. i like the direction EMR is going.

    I think I've seen enough videos and online listings to be comfortable that it has Thunderbolt 3, with several confirming charging with the proprietary charger and over USB-C. This is looking more and more like my next computer and Wacom EMR would really be welcome. If it works with my Dell TB16 dock that will be the icing on the cake. Maybe Santa will be good to me for Christmas.

    My only reservation at this point is size (LxW) as it is quoted at 330 x 230 x 10 mm (15mm with keyboard), while by comparison a Dell XPS 13 is only 304 x 200 x 9-15mm.

    The key tidbit:

    "The Acer Switch 7 Black Edition will be available in North America in December with prices starting at $1,699; and in EMEA in December starting at €1,999."

    Christmas has come. :)

    (Let's hope they don't pull an HP (surprise price), and actually stick to their announced pricing. :p)

    At least in Germany it looks like it won't be available before 2018... But the price is already set at 1999€

    Hold up.....that page only mentions it having 1 USB 3 Type A Port.....I though this was going to have both the Typa A and One Thunderbolt 3/Type-C? Even in the pic, the Thunderbolt 3 port....which was right next to the Type A port seems gone.
