    For me a 3:2 screen is nicer . The Switch 7 seems to have "just enough" features to be compelling?

    However I really like all the "extras" the HP Zbook X2 has, plus the great build and warranty support.

    IMHO no point in comparing the two yet until they are both actually available, as right now, one is real and other is still yet a possibility.

    :)

    You're not wrong!

    Realistically, I probably wait for a sale even then. The T901 was my unicorn way back when and I still waited for a refurbished unit at a price point I could swallow.

    But if I absolutely need a machine right away... well, situations like that is why I'm so miserly everywhere else!

    Geez, and that's not even the quadcore model. Man, cost of pro art tools is going through the roof!

    I've often imagined starting a small indie studio, but just the thought of equipping a small team with new tablets and cintiqs...:confused: man, better start saving lol.

    EDIT: and then add one of these for the meeting room :p

    Oh, never you, @dstrauss! You want too much function out of your devices to let the prettiness sway you for long. (As exemplified by your return history...)

    Yes, now only if it will exist in real live stores for actual purchase.

    Man, Acer keeps making really cool looking devices with awesome innovative features, but I have had so many build quality and customer service problems with them in the past I can't justify trusting them with my money again. Sad.
