    Oh boy! Another 12-ish inch doodling device! Finally a tablet maker delivering a product for this under-served market!

    It's like an art supply store that has a giant stock of pens and brushes, but for paper only carries dinner napkins. Uhh, thanks?

    I am kind of tempted by it for some reason, but think it price should either be $100 lower or start at 64gb, because even on Chromebook 32gb is small. Hell even the Pixel line stopped offering a 32gb option.

    It doesn't matter if it's raining pens if those pens aren't great.

    That's not getting into the cost of the pen; that it runs Chrome OS which even with Android apps has a dearth of decent programs for most uses and is also a very subjective OS (I can't stand it myself, the assumption you often have internet access being the worst, but the general feel being meh); and that that keyboard looks horrible.

    And then we have the cherry on top: no headphone jack.

    All yours for $600 (no pen or keyboard though).

    The keyboard is a third of the slate?
    Wonder what genius came up with that marketing scheme?
