    The Nibs are akin to the different Wacom Nibs has far as fiction and hardness, the PixelSense are the screen improvements, and the higher level of pressure (1024). There is zero parallax between pen and screen. Hardware is evolutionary but significant.

    The PixelSense and N-trig teams are combined into one Screen Technology Team, bringing both together in the new chipset....

    So no changes to the polling rate of the digitizer or broadcast power of the pen to improve tracking (particularly for hover)?

    Yes, there was improvements in both but I don't have any actual numbers, I won't meet with the engineering team again until November...

    I hate how they dont include the DGPU across the board... This may confuse some buyers. Also makes the one I want nearly 2k before taxes... this makes me think twice. The graphics are also not confirmed... for all we know its a 920m which is only marginally better than the new integrated graphics (better yes, but still not worth the price of admission).

    As for the SP4... anyone notice how the base now has core M. They did this last time with the Y so I guess it was to be expected. With the core M though, it could have been fanless :(

    So...I've got a question. Are any of us actually doing any work, you know, at work? ;)
