    Yes, it is thick and wedge shaped, but it terminates into a razor thin, knife like thin edge--
    great for grating cheese :)
    The stylus is in the very left bottom(the thick part w the ports etc) ,
    while holding it in landscape. If you did not
    know it was there or not looking for it, you wouldnt see it.

    Wow. I've been using it on and off for a couple of weeks and hadn't noticed the stylus. Thanks!

    And I totally agree about the razor's edge. Makes the tablet really uncomfortable to hold for long periods.

    The HP Pro 612 G1 is one of the best 2-in-1 convertibles HP has delivered for a long, long time. Who cares about an Elitepad with too many jackets, if you can have a fingerprint sensor, smartcard reader and LTE in one box!

    The travel keyboard will never lett you miss the surface 3, the power keyboard gives you the best keyboard experience like an ultrabook and dockingstation all the ports at your desk.

    Btw, the Wacom digitizer works like a charm.

    Does anybody know if it's possible to enable a PRE-BOOT onscreen keyboard similar to the Surface Pro 3 if I want to use Bitlocker without a physical keyboard?

    Some devices have this ability while some don't. I believe it is a BIOS/Firmware thing.

    Any help given would be great.

    Thanks.

    I just got the i5 model for work, with the power keyboard. Works great, but I do mish connected standby. Also, no HDMI/video in the tablet itself means I can't use the tablet like an old school Wacom tablet. Will post more as I learn more.

    The keyboard dock does not have miniHDMI,
    I thought I read somewhere it did.

    However, HP still does not offer the keyboard base seperately.....
    it has only been 4 months since it came out?????

    The x2 612 G1 is available since August 2014. I'm also a proud owner of the x2 612 (i5 8GB LTE) with the power-keyboard dock. It has only DisplayPort + VGA output.

    The Tablet itself does only offer one USB 3.0. You can buy an WiDi adapter from HP, like this one:

    I am hoping the battery life on the tablet portion is at least 5.5 hours.

    HP lists it at 8 hours, but its always 35-40% less than adverstised...

    with the battery keyboard, I hope it can do 8.5 hours. Again, HP advertises it as 14 hours, but again reduce that by 35-40% for real world usage...
