    I'm honestly so checked out....that I can't get excited over MS's products anymore...if it doesn't have Wacom EMR and it isn't repairable, I'm uninterested.

    Which pretty much means I'll soon be on my way out of the Tablet PC fan club...

    Might as well ask for the dinosaurs back.

    You can hate Microsoft and still love Tablet PCs - Thinkpad Yogas, HP X2/Elite 1013 G3, consumer models. What am I missing?

    Neil DeGrasse Tyson has suggested that if the dinosaurs had a space program, they would still be here. Food for thought.

    They've all moved away from EMR...and are all going towards devices that cannot be repaired..and i'm pretty much at the same place with smartphones...

    Everything has moved away from actual utility into this realm of flashy...all flash zero substance...

    @nnthemperor EMR might be considered dinosaur but it's STILL superior to MPP & AES

    You know what they say, if you can't dazzle them with your brilliance, baffle with your BS - ALL of the vendors are on the baffle train...

    Old men dream of DNA experiments and opening up a safari park featuring dinosaurs. Seems doable, and what could possibly go wrong?

    Is this the future of serious artists?

    All aboard the Wacom Mobile Studio Pro / cintiq boat?

    It's odd. If their goal is to create new product categories, I wonder why they even made the Surface Go.

    Maybe just to fight apple? To have a flagship affordable-ish tablet for students?

    But a yoga. As amazing as a 3:2 penabled yoga would be, would it really create a new category?

    Not for long I suspect. EMR is still king, that much I agree with....but the 2017 Pro & 2017 Surface Pen keep presently surprising me. Drawing on my Pro 3, or the nSP with the Pro 4 pen would have me in minutes switching back to my Mobile Studio or Galaxy Book. The 2017 Surface Pen however.......I'm making do just fine with that for the moment.....and its not that bad to be honest.

    I wouldn't expect much from a minor 8th gen Pro refresh. But if they could fine tune the pen a bit more and beef up its specs even further.....I really do think N-trig tech could actually finally equal or even surpass EMR by time the 2019 Pro redesign hits.
