    I should have been more clear - I'm not concerned so much about "wonkiness" of final software needing updates, it IS the EXPERIENCE that is a disaster. There is a 4-5 page tutorial showing a spanned app, but why isn't there a local load of Office so you can see a Word and Excel file side by side; Outlook spanned across two displays with list on left and detail on right; same for OneNote. Failure to set those display models up to give you a GOOD DEMO of what the two screen life will be is a MAJOR marketing failure.

    Dare you to go post the link on Thurrott's review and DARE him to read for once - but his hatred for Tom Warren knows no bounds and I'd bet he'd spit out his coffee at the suggestion.

    So it seems that Neo is still alive. That's good...

    128GB, I'm all in on one drive.
    And...my status on delivery is back to "on hold by sender request" :(

    Apple did that to me with my iPhone 11 Pro - FedEx held it two days waiting for OFFICIAL release day - infuriating...

    Sorry about the status.

    I'm in for OneDrive too. Having said that, I went 256 because:
    1. If I'm going all in on this I'm putting my media/music/etc. on it too.
    2. I like to keep my Evernote local for offline access.
    3. If company IT requires me to maintain a separate/duplicate profile for its security, I could wind up needing storage for 2 full versions of the Office apps each with different logins.
    4. In order to stop carrying my iPad, there are some apps I will have to put on SDuo that aren't currently on my phone.

    That's actually one of the better executed features of the duo, it truly can be a work/personal device with a totally different look app selection etc.

    This bodes well too for the rumor that the duo is the first of a line of devices both above and below this first one.

    Well, looks like the embargo isn't being lifted today, at least I haven't heard a peep from any site. Release day it is then?
