    Well, the Tansformer seems to be able to do it. That's why I'm hoping something like the S7 will too. But I've used non-alterable keyboards before, and I never liked it. So I agree with you there. It needs to feel and act like a laptop when I want it to be a laptop, or it isn't really doing what I think a keyboard dock should do-- namely, provide a truly mobile keyboard solution with full functionality.

    Hopefully it has a good screen with high color accuracy, and correct contrast.

    From what I've seen at Computex and since, the Surface and the Tablet 2 have one fixed angle for the keyboard dock, whereas Asus's models will have a detachable hinge.

    Thinkpad Tablet 2 at IFA: link.

    Not much new info at all. The more I see that active digitizer and read about the "Active Digitizer Option" the more I think the digitizer is the pen itself. Ntrig.

    A video as well: The Inquirer.

    Wow! They could have put the ice on the cake if they had said the screen was matte. Seems like the Ativ (S5H) will face tough competition.

    I would a agree a matte ups screen with good color gamut could have sold it for me and I'm sure others too.

    Every single review of the Thinkpad Tablet 2 has commented on its bugginess. I haven't seen similar comments with, say, the Envy X2 or the Samsung devices (which also have had a decent number of reviews). What's going on with that?

    That stuff should be worked out by launch; for me the only thing to worry about now is the performance of inking in OneNote or any other such software. Previous videos of Win 8 OneNote performance on an Atom showed rather dismal lag. I hope that Clover Trail is able to pull through on the full Win 8 as well as my X220T on Win 7, at least when it comes to inking.
