    You've got to keep your Yogas straight. I'm referring to the THINKPAD Yoga which just went on sale this week. The Thinkpads are the first members of the Yoga line to include Wacom digitizers.

    The Surface Pro is great for art, but its 10.1 inch screen renders the Photoshop interface too small to be practical. If on the other hand, you're planning to use Manga Studio, Sketchbook Pro or ArtRage 4, those interfaces are very usable on the Surface Pro's screen.

    I see that now... The quote he made still concerns me though, since he mentioned it being the best around, not just for those 2 models. Not really sure where hes getting that info? Any idea?

    Great site btw, great info for artists!

    The ThinkPad might be great but it's also almost double as heavy as the SP 2 is. That makes it quite hard to be used as a tablet. Therefore it could be more robust

    I doubt the pen itself will be amazing. I don't like the Lenovo stylii I've seen on the Hybrid, etc. It's too small and thin to be useful. You'll still want to go with a Wacom Bamboo Feel or similar pen.

    I find the normal Thinkpad pen totally adequate and great for art. Is it as ergonomically pleasant as a 100$ pen? Nope. But it works wonderfully.

    That's different than the super skinny one they've got on the Thinpad Tablet 2 though.

    I really wish Microsoft, Sony, or Nokia would already put out an 8" preferably ARM / RT tablet with either Wacom or Ntrig support. Baytrail would be a somewhat acceptable alternative, but I care more about a maintenance free experience and excellent battery life for a mini-OneNote device..

    You forgot super lightweight. But yes, that would be awesome, even if it would make me second guess (tenth guess..) my all-in SP2 approach..

    On an unrelated note, does anyone have any updates info on some of the question marks in the excel sheet?
