    That's what you get using social media as your source of news; anyone can write anything they want, quote you out of context, and you can't even call them a liar!

    Well you know, since I'm in meetings the majority of my day, I'm certain I always fall in the trap of agreeing with someone by restating it! ;) Regardless, I appreciate your thoughts (and some others on this board) as it greatly informs my thinking as I go about my job.

    You know, you hit on the one thing that is unique to Apple and something Steve Jobs always said, the only way for a user to get the truly best experience is if the vendor owns and controls every aspect of the device OS and hardware.

    What's sad is that Microsoft has the same opportunity to do that with the Surface line, but after a great start with the Surface pro, they seem to have chickened out.

    Since I decided not to get an iPad Pro in the end, yesterday I ordered a little gadget on Amazon for my Galaxy Book 10.6 for TWENTYFIVE bucks:

    And I instantly remembered why I ended up drawing exclusively on the old GB12 instead of the iPad Pro: because this single pen is freaking amazing. As lightweight as a real pencil, super accurate, no glass slipperiness, super thin tip.
    It makes you forget you're drawing on a screen instead of paper like no others.

    By the way, I don't know what happened but the palm rejection issue I had before seems completely disappeared.

    Wish I could double like this post, so here goes :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I don't know why I keep running away from the best 2-in-1 compromise (size, weight, processor, Wacom) out there , the Galaxy Book 12. :vbconfused::vbfrown::vboops::vbrolleyes:

    PS - you must have meant Euro's as it is $59 bucks here...(got mine from BB on a flash sale last year :vbbiggrin:)

    Yep, Euro.
    Consider though it was 50 last time I checked a month ago, so I had no excuses not to get it this time. :D

    My understanding as to why you run away from GB12 is:
    Lack of LTE
    Size (but now you've accepted need for >10" screen)
    Superior Docking Solution

    Thanks for the education. I had considered the SGo as an "emotional" purchase. But my meager tablet needs are adequately met by me SP2017.

    Well, I'm glad we masses are providing you inputs that are of any use to you. May I suggest that the benefit stream is asymetrical; I'm confident I learn a great deal more useful and interesting information from you than you can possibly derive from my comments, in particular. :p Only rarely have I encountered professional specialists on tech forums who are willing to provide insights, much less even identifying themselves as members of an "elite" class. More often than not I think they just lurk and scrape data. Your "meeting thoughts" are immensely interesting. Should you wish any focused inputs or responses, ask away. :)
