Or, you just install Windows on it.
Anyone know that this is fanless or something?
I think we can install windows 10 on it, if this thing has a bios. what do you think??
Yes it's fanless.
As for installing Windows, a quick search tells me it's typically not as simple for Chromebooks as just downloading an ISO and installing it, you need to patch the UEFI (which typically apparently requires opening up the case to access a write protect switch/screw).
What about the drawing side?
I saw something like this today , non detachable 2 in 1, and what i came so, is that when u put the screen upside and keyboard down for tablet mode, the upper bezel of fhe screen is too big, so is not really good for drawing i mean

It would be just out if interest, because the ChromeOS ecosystem is too small, and Android apps are not necessarily optimized for use with ChromeOS.

They don't say much about the pen. But apparently it is Wacom AES, which I keep hearing bad things about.
Wacom AES is okay --- used it for years in my Toshiba Encore 2 Write 10, and would probably still be using it as my main machine if that particular tablet was compatible w/ the Wacom Bamboo Smart for Select 2-in-1 Devices which I optimistically imported from Japan.
- low hover distance (compared to Wacom EMR)
- the nuisance of having to purchase batteries every 6--9 months or so
- misliked how the stylus tip slightly moved inward when using it
then there is the upcoming...Pixelbook Core 17. Likely the most powerful Chrome/Android device ever. Sadly still uses AES...
16GBram/512ssd/12.3 screen....its like Googles version of a Macbook. If it had EMR I would buy it, but it does not....
