    Lol, I hope the 2gb is a typo.

    Turning into a joke product, just needs that synaptic pen, for the final punch line.

    I pray its not 2GB.....I find it really sad that OEM's can even think that's still reasonable in 2016. I'd rather 4GB/64GB instead of 2GB/128GB

    However on the pen front.....that pointy tip and long pen barrel reminds me an awful lot of the upcoming Wacom AES Gen 13 pen.

    Pen or no pen? This makes me confused.

    Official press release : http://press.asus.com/PressReleases/p/ASUS-Presents-Zenvolution-at-Computex-2016#.V00hCJF96Uk
    It didn't mention anything about Asus Pen for the mini and the 2 videos posted doesn't have any stylus at all (The first one got one a section where someone was using the pen but that isn't the mini). Although, a stylus holder can be spotted on the keyboard dock in both videos which made me even more confused.

    Also ASUS pen is 1024 pressure level, ruling out all wacom AES, making it either Ntrig or USI partner.

    the pen holder on the keyboard is what tell us there is pen support, also on this video you can see inside the device it says pen and touch support

    2gb RAM is simply unacceptable at this point in time in any device over $200.

    Ah nice, a new video. Now I'm convinced with "pen and touch" shown in the system.
    Sigh, 2GB as always Asus never fail to deliver disappointing config in their entry level system. I hope they will have 4GB variant as well.

    Nope, it isn't really exact.
    Cube iworks 11 also use Z83XX proc but has 4GB RAM :D but in that review I spotted x86 OS.

    from Asus page , this device have :-
    Windows hello (via fingerprint reader)
    precision touchpad
    active pen
    11 hours of battery life
    metal body that weight 790 grams with the keyboard
    a decent IPS display with above average brightness

    this is an amazing device for 350$ , and it's what Microsoft needs to defeat Chromebooks in the education market , a cheap device that is overwhelmingly better than any Chromebook for education (because of the touchscreen , pen , and ease of login with the fingerprint reader ) especially the pen is the most important aspect of this device , I really really hope it's a good pen
