    Yeah, you're right. Scaling is a big issue. But with FHD on 13", I can deal with it. And 1366p just looks so crappy... ;)

    1440p is too much pixels, cause one would need 200% scaling which is also crappy in some applications. So, FHD is the sweet Spot for me

    Just the i5 is gone, but if you are lucky you can catch up the i3 in some regions since yesterday.

    They really should skip it and release a Core M sucessor. Preferably with 13,3" and a better touchpad.

    Hrmm... I've been looking for a replacement for my HPTM2T and I so far like the 612 but I'd like to see it in person. Hopefully it will make it to a retailer or a MS store.

    What I'd really like to know if how easy it is to add RAM and change out the HDD. I noticed that when you go to the business site you can choose models with only 4GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB SSD. Also mentions that there is an on-board option for 4GB or 8GB or RAM but then lists SODIMM RAM modules, two slots total. Could be that we can get 8GB or RAM on-board and expand with the extra two SODIMM or it's all just SODIMM. But, as far as the SDD, I hope it can be replaced. Then we can just buy the base model with the highest proc speed and upgrade ourselves.

    Has anyone reviewed the 612 G1 with the Wacom (Bamboo?) Pen3, which is available since 20th of October?

    Got the 612 for testing today, but only the cheap version, I3, no digitizer, low resolution of the display 1366.
    For me this device is never a Surface Pro 3 killer. The design looks cheap and the angle for the display in the keyboard dock is very limited.
    I don't think we will buy a lot of these devices. I will keep my Spectre x2 pro

    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.
