    Of much more interest to you is the Sony multi-flip

    duosense 2
    up to 15" screen
    at least 8 gigs RAM
    big SSD options
    AND high end dedicated GPU

    Thats looking promising, even if it is Ntrig

    I can't do it. I can't force myself to give up Wacom.

    You should make a thread about the flip in the News Headlines section.

    I hate that we are place in this position... ...Feeling like we are giving up something to gain something else. I wish N-Trig was an equal competitor for Wacom; at the very least offering the same range of application support.

    At least N-Trig doesn't have the problem with the edge of the screen , correct?

    I'd be curious to see how the base Pentium model pricing will be like, and if it is using the same exact screen as the Duo 11, or are they using the slightly more improved Pro 11 display. Also read in another thread Sony is working with Adobe to get things working correctly.

    There's too many threads talking about this stuff!

    I noted somewhere else the following. . .

    I really want to try out an N-Trig machine to see if it's really worth the attention. I'd also like to know if the pressure curve can be tweaked, either in software or from the driver.

    Anyway, if Sony has working drivers for Photoshop, then this really is going to be something to pay attention to.

    A 15" tablet at 1920 x 1080 with dedicated graphics? This is something we've been waiting for for years! It's all going to come down to the artist reviews in a few months time.

    Engadget mentioned a very interesting tidbit:

    "Returning to that display for a moment, the tablet uses an N-Trig digitizer to enable pen input. Sony says it chose N-Trig over Wacom in part because N-Trig's pens put their sensors closer toward the tip, allowing for better accuracy. "

    Really? :confused: Is that the reason? Out of all the reasons Ntrig actually brags about (mainly compact circuitry and cost savings), Sony chose Ntrig over Wacom to improve accuracy?

    If it's true, this actually makes me think we'd be better off if Wacom had a monopoly!

    I mean all these Sony products are spec/design-wise excellent products. The Duo 13 regularly outperforms other Haswell ultraportables while retaining excellent weight and battery life, and the these new products look to be continuing that trend. The only thing preventing these machines from being top-class contenders for best Tablet PCs is the DuoSense 2. And all because, some well-intentioned person from Sony wanted to improve the stylus experience...Ugh! Tell me this is a joke!

    It is interesting that the Engadget article says

    I'm thinking that has to be a typo.
