    3:2 1920x1280, IPS, thunderbolt, an outdated chip, "Dell Premium Active Pen" and and a little heavier than the surface pro. Aside from Thunderbolt I don't see many upsides.

    Totally agree. The one small crack I see that might get them a few sales is a VPro option, at least for corporate. That's something the Surface Pro has lacked and that a handful of our customers excluded the Surface Pro from adoption.

    As a side note, I wonder if supply chain issues are part of the reason they went with 10th gen?

    Obviously I can't speak to Dells supply chain, but from our own, 11th gen is really tight whereas 10th gen is relatively plentiful. At least for the moment.

    Was shopping for surface pro style laptops for work, and Dell's options always seemed crazy expensive. Just the i3/4GB option seems to start at $1,400. You could get a loaded MS Surface Pro at that price it seems.

    Near as I can tell from Dells corporate website it looks to be N-trig and maybe USI?

    Update :Got confirmation this morning from dell that this unit uses N-Trigs pen tech. The mention of USI support was apparently a typo and will be fixed on the site.

    It is also compatible with MS surface pens

    So I'm assuming that 10th gen model never got released. Glad they gave it a much needed redesign. How quickly it went from being easy to ignore, to right on my radar.
