    Too bad you did not get the digitizer.
    I have been thinking about purchasing one of these.
    My Surface 3 pen has problems and is frustrating for
    drawing, ect. its just not a Wacom feel.
    Staples has the HP x2 612 i3 and i5 listed on their website now.

    How is the screen, they have 1980p displays too.

    Yes the model with digitizer not available at the moment.
    I think I will try to get an other test device in a few weeks. (I5, high Resolution Display, Digitizer).
    What is your problem with the Surface 3 pen?

    My Surface 3 pen is problematic. It works when it wants to.
    It acts like it goes to sleep nd you have to tap on the screen several times
    and/or pull the tip out or unscrew the battery end to get it to work.

    I have bought another NTrig pen(a $10 Amazon NTrig) and it does the
    same thing. It is annoying and frustrating. Plus, those batteries are hard
    to find and expensive. I have the Dell and know the battery well.

    We ordered one from the Staples website. It says it has the pen.
    We will find out in a few days when it arrives.

    A Singapore reviewer states it has a metal body. You had indicated
    your sample was plastic. Is there more than one version?

    I don't know but my test device is 90% plastic. My older spectre x2 pro has a metal base and also the Display coverage (back) is metal (which is unfortunatly not really cratch resistent).
    Your experience with the Surface 3 is quite different to the general opionion about the Pen of the Surface. If you search the web a lot of People love the Pen of the Surface.
    Ok, this means I have to get a test device prior buying a Surface Pro 3.

    I think most loved the Wacom pen with the Surface 1 & 2.
    I have the Surface 1 and really like the (wacom) pen.

    The Surface 3 pen is NTrig. An entirely different tech.
    I have asked over on the Surface forum and no one has
    been able to figure out why my tablet pen is having these problems.
    I know my Surface 1 Wacom pen never had these problems.

    Alot of the gushing reports are made by persons whom received their
    tablets as comps. There are other reports that say otherwise.

    All depends upon how you use the computer I guess.
    Of course my old Toshiba was all plastic and still works fine.
    The Surface 3 is all metal too. I have not noticed too much scratching
    though.

    Yes, there is definitly a fan, and yes you can hear it.
    Unfortunately it uses the fan a lot.

    Yes it is only the i3, I wish I had the I5 with the pen and high resolution screen.
    I think some of my experiences would be better.

    A tablet PC without a pen is sort of
    like a car without wheels....
