    Actually, this is a philosophical direction for most of these devices now. You have the TabletPC that can sometimes attach to a keyboard dock, or the Ultrabook with the removable screen. The first is intended to be used as a slate with occasional keyboard use and the latter is intended to be used as a laptop that can be used as a slate occasionally. The Pro X2 612, along with the Q704, Helix, and Surface Pro 3 are of the second category. So, depending on how you intend to use the product would dictate which direction to pick a device from. If you want a slate 80% of the time then this one may not be for you.

    Beware! If I am reading HPs site correctly:
    It looks like there are models with and WITHOUT the Wacom Digitizer.
    You must order accordingly.

    The 612 G1 will be powered by the Core i5 (i3) Haswell technology - I used the HP Spectre x2 (Core i5 Convertible) with an USB-powered AOC display.

    You can daisy chain the display port, like you can do with the Surface Pro. Or you have to plug in an USB3 video adapter for the 3rd screen.

    Disassembly Instruction [1][2]

    Configurable Models [1][2]

    Pre-configured Models [1][2]

    Pricing isn't that impressive, but I am sure it will come down once it makes it to retailers.

    Hmm... those are pretty smallish batteries for a Haswell device (29 Whr).

    Drawing on slick glass, no.
    Having to put a screen protector on to compensate, no.
    Using the stick barrel pens on market, no.
    OTHERWISE having a larger screen sounds great. But this is a business pc first, so I doubt it will be of any value to the art crowd that are thinking about the Companion.

    Battery pen, eh thats fine, its not that bad, wacom will perfect it if they get into it. It will also break since their latest record has a lot of breaking stuff.

    Huh, Wacom pens do not use batteries.
    If I understood your post correctly.
