    • Just saw it on sale at geekbuying as well, it goes for $359 with the stylus pen.

    Here is the video everyone is looking for. I posted this in the comments section of TechTablets a couple days ago:

    Huh. I wonder how it would perform with something lighter like Xodo, or if MobileSheets would be tolerable. It's getting harder to not get one.

    Must remember how bad Hi12 was. Must remember how bad Hi12 was. Must remember how bad Hi12 was...

    I strongly recommend keeping a safe, healthy distance from all these Apollo Lake tablets with Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book displays. Apollo Lake processor should be just called Atom 2.0, since they are just slightly boosted Atom processors still without the necessary graphics grunt and muscle to push all those pixels. There is a very, very smart, good reason why all the mainstream tablet PCs except Microsoft largely still use resolutions around full HD. This here is your textbook example of an over-designed product, where you get serious drawbacks just like this.

    But but but, I only need a really big screen to flip through PDFs with the occasional marking. The problem is, those markings are small and have to be fast and accurate. Why can't a reviewer just pop open onenote with some rule lines and write a sentence? Some of us just need to write accurately.

    I am almost 100% Apollo Lake will lag at anything pen input-related when it has 5 to 6 megapixels of desktop display graphics to continuously output. As several have said here before, one of the single-most driving factors in pen input performance is the processor's single-thread performance.

    When it comes to single-thread performance that is key to effortless pen computing, Apollo Lake is underwhelming and fails to deliver just like its Atom ancestor did. See here:
    Apollo Lake Celeron N3450
    Kaby Lake Core m3-7Y30

    Apollo Lake is just Intel's next attempt at making lemonade from the lemon's of Intel Atom's failure in the mobile marketplace, and pen performance will only be worse when you have an ultra-high resolution display to render.
