    What a time to be alive. Wish there was a trackpoint and a bit bigger
    That battery life estimate though.

    That term "HP Fast Charge" does worry me a bit.
    It seems it has still a regular round DC port, not sure if that is in addition to USB-PD charging or its sole charging port. They mention "HP Thunderbolt docking" but nothing about USB-Power Delivery. Hopefully it is also capable to be charged through USB-PD and they are not screwing up again by not following USB-PD specifications like they did before.

    Well, too expansive as always and just made for Windows, not for OSX. And who cares about a TB3 port, when an externalGPU isn't available? Acer's graphical system is discontinued and all others like Asus have a horrible (thermal / technical) design.

    Anyhow, lame NVM and still a product of HP. Does they still exist after all that time and selling not much?

    So glad HP didn't go w/ Synaptics for the pen. Can't decide whether I'd prefer this over the X1 Yoga. I think I read somewhere that this uses Precision Touchpad somewhere, so if true.. glad they ditched Synaptics on that front too.

    I'd really like one, UHD with Sure View, Wacom & WWAN. Seems like a dream machine to me.

    I'm thinking about replacing my Fujitsu T904 with this machine. The only thing that worries me is that how well the HP's thunderbolt will work.

    I've ordered a fully spec'd Elitebook x360 G2 now, should be here in a week or two along with a Thunderbolt 3 dock. I'll post a review as soon as it arrives.

    I received mine last week and have to say I'm blown away, trackpad and keyboard are amazing with Precision Touchpad drivers and a crisp actuation respectively, the pen works just as expected but it was nice of HP to include a pen loop that goes into the Smart Card slot so can always have the pen handy (I'm not sure if this is included in all regions), fingerprint scanner and IR work very well for Hello, it's lighter then it looks but very solid build, speakers are average but I've been spoiled by the speakers on the Spectre x360. Also can confirm it has USB-C power delivery.
