    Nice summarization. Thanks.

    The disappointing news?:
    1. Last Gen tech (ivy bridge in Windows model);
    2. 16:9 aspect ratio;
    3. Price (especially when considering no keyboard=lack of flexibility);
    4. No dockable keyboard.

    Artists might not care so much about the keyboard, but really it's just one less enabler that could provide options for customers.

    So far I did 2 videos: 1 comparing 13HD HB w. ith Note 10.1 and T902, and a sketch test of 13HD HB. I also have another video of someone else sketching on it.

    I wanted to do one using it as a Cintiq, but I think I ran out of time since I have to return this tomorrow and I have to go to bed, and the computer is too busy converting files and uploading. I have really slow upload speed at my new place so that's also a problem.

    Maybe I can squeeze it in in the morning but no promises.

    Cripes, this 5 minute video is taking a full hour to upload... The 20 minute one is going to have to wait until I get to somewhere with decent upload speed connection. I actually miss Time Warner...

    UPDATE: I killed the second upload to test the Cintq mode. NO REBOOT NECESSARY! It will go in and out of Android when you plus in the HDMI into the computer. So my Wacom source had that wrong.

    Did couple of really quick videos on that as well.

    Shog, how bright would you say the Companion Hybrid is in Nits? The Galaxy Note 10.1 hits 600 nits.....but the regular Cintiq 13HD hits around a very dim 250 nits. Not so much an issue in a ligthing controlled studio....but for an on the go tablet used at lunch breaks or any place with windows and outdoor light creeping it, the dimness could pose a huge problem.

    Definitely closer to 13HD. Just pure spitballing, but say 300~400nits. Hard to tell something like this without instruments.

    Also, GN 10.1 is color temp is cold while the 13HD CH is warm.

    OK, now I have to head to return it. I will try to upload those vids later today.
