    Um... looking at your sig "HP Envy T17 MPP - POS made by OEM who's now a shadow of former self. Design flaws on the hinge, crappiest MPP digitizer, used as a ghetto rig"
    doesn't fill me with confidence of helping the team and if I were splashing out on another HP - I'd just get another zbook X2 G4....

    I'm over buying laptops with lousy 8550U even if it's rocking Wacom EMR. I mean, I already have a Notebook 9 Pro with 8550U....

    Yeah, if it wasn't for my HP experience, I'd have ordered the thing already...

    Yeah, that's the one dissapointing part of the X2 G4 line.

    I would bring my MPP/ntrig pen to Best Buy to make sure it is before I purchase one myself. But I'll wait till the price is more to my liking.

    You say "tendency" to use Elan; do you know of any HP models that don't? Thanks.

    Also, note that the only screen available at HP is a FHD, *250 nit* version; hard to imagine that dimmness is accurate, but beware. Also, when you configure the device for more RAM on BB, note that it is capped at 12GB, but also that choosing this automatically switches the cpu back to Intel, 10th gen.

    Methinks it's too early to jump in on one of these, other than to test and return.

    On HP site you can get a better "NIT screen" and most likely the way I would go. I would love to give Best Buy my business but not if they only have a 250 nit screen.

    The Best Buy one seems like a different model in that it definitely has different RAM config. (8 or 12). One on HP site has 8 or 16 so I'm hoping HP one has SoDIMM slots where as Best Buy one has at least 4GB soldered...

    How? I saw no options.

    I'm thinking that BB only has an 8GB model (could be 4/4, coiuld be 8/0) with the Ryzen cpus. When you increase RAM to 12GB in the BB page, it automatically changes your cpu choice to Intel 10th gen, and only offers 12GB, so clearly a 4 soldered/8 socketed "option." Weird. Still think info too sketchy to order from either place yet.
