    Well, since the pressure sensor is in the pen (along with the initial activation force), I don't get why it shouldn't work as long as the sensor on the surface understands the signal.
    Or am I missing something?

    Dang yes same thoughts...but is the pen for sure Wacom? That LTE option is right in my alley.
    Wish they had a 10" variant ...
    I went to the MS store yesterday..it sure feels light but the spec weight is almost the same . Wish they had a pen in stock . No idea when the LTE version will be released .

    @kvoram:
    Lisa Gade confirms a 49 Whr battery. They must have upped it right before production. Hence, the slight discrepancy we are seeing between the rated and actual capacity from these demo, pre-production units.



    EDIT: See above. :D

    I will hopefully pass by again in the coming week or so. For now, I will leave it up to one of our adept and awesome fellow members to answer this mystery! :D

    Decided to forego the Galaxy Book I was planning to review and instead just ordered a new Surface Pro i5/8GB/256 for $1299. No pen. No keyboard.

    Not a happy camper. I would have preferred to review an i7 with Iris Plus graphics, but the price is just too steep. No matter the slight bump provided by Iris graphics, I've already got devices like the Yoga 720 that will blow it away.
