    Does your have Windows 8.1 or Windows 10?
    How does your pen work?

    Or maybe it has some traffic problems in Ft. Lee.

    Yes, 16:9. No, it isn't eMMC. It has a user-accessible M.2 2242 SSD slot.

    As much as I like the Cube, the 16:9 aspect ratio and the lack of support make it a "no go" for me. For now, it looks like the SGB10 if I am sufficiently tempted when it is released or waiting until the end of the year for W10/ARM. I am sorely tempted by the Samsung's specifications and am not completely turned-off by the eMMC. I am also not a fan of the Cube's keyboard base.

    That is why I haven't been able to convince myself to get it. I am also dissuaded by the customer support or lack thereof. Paying overseas shipping for warranty work and potentially waiting for a month or more just isn't appealing. That, in addition, doesn't even convince me to get it as a tinker toy.

    See my post above. eMMC 5.0 has much better random write performance and, to my knowledge, only eMMC 5.0 and above has been used in the Intel Core M reference designs.

    Windows 10. I have no complaints with the pen...I actually traded the surface 3 pen for my partner's surface pro 4 pen because she hardly uses it. Both pens are super smooth in onenote except when I'm doing too many things in the background.

    Hey, I'm putting on a lot of self-restraint lately.

    You're right. I wonder, when a company like Samsung shows off a new product at an event or trade show does anyone from the tech press call B.S. on stuff like this?
