    I used HWiNFO to check whether or not the Thunderbolt port on the X360 G2 has a full x4 PCI-Express connection and it looks like it has a full x4 PCI-Express connection to the Alpine Ridge controller.

    can you compare drawing between the 2 computers? I know the Spectre has n-trig and the Elite has wacom (I think) I'm trying to figure out if it matters. I'm not loving the ntrig in the Spectre.

    This is a nearly perfect machine, but I have one complaint: the screen does not wake up on touch, eg when it has been turned off by power management. This is annoying when in tablet mode. Is this behaviour normal?

    in my country, the model with i7 7600u + 16GB + 512GB SSD have a USD950 difference than the model with i5 7200u + 8GB + 256GB SSD.
    Do you guys think this whooping USD950 price difference justified from performance comparison wise? is it a big difference between i5 v7200u vs i7 7600u ?

    @xor01 unless it's ridiculously cheap, I'd get a 16GB RAM model regardless of the CPU, since it's soldered and you won't be able to upgrade it later. Bigger SSD can be added without a problem, though.

    But is this 25% performance gap noticeable in real life or just in benchmark?
    I'm gonna use it for adobe photoshop + lightroom and probably some casual gaming.

    well thats the thing, only 2 models: i5 7200 + 8GB ram + 256GB ssd ... and i7 7600 + 16gb ram + 512gb ssd.

    @xor01 what are the exact prices? maybe it would be better to purchase it abroad? E.g. there are i5/8GB models available for $1200 on eBay. It would be a pity If you end up paying much more for it in your country.

    USD1750 for i5 7200 + 8gb ram + 256gb ssd
    USD2700 for i7 7600 + 16gb ram + 512gb ssd

    i can buy on ebay, but it probably take usd100 for registered shipping and another usd400 for import duty and tax.
