    And go back to Wacom EMR. Then we'd have a winner.

    I almost forgot: thin bezels and replaceable SSDs like the Surface Pro X. And that reminds me: buried somewhere in the posts here or Reddit, according to a Microsoft employee some months ago, the Pro 7 didn’t quite intersect with its timeline to incorporate all the Pro X’s new features but the next iteration will. So thin bezels and user removable SSDs are well on the way. And another huge feature we should not forget: Thunderbolt 3/USB 4 support.

    Here's hoping you are right, but I think R&D is all going to Neo and Duo...

    I have to disagree with that. The Slim Pen really changes the n-trig drawing experience....even with the current Pro-5 pen tech....I have a Mobile Studio Pro, a Zbook X2, and a Galaxy Book 10.6.....all phenomenal EMR devices.....and.....I’ve been sketching with my Pro 5 more then any other as of late. Provided the next true Pro gen has an upgraded pixel sense chipset to better take advantage of the Slim pen...(which the Pro 7 didn’t) I feel quite confident in stating EMR no longer has the innate advantage.

    I'd just like one machine to rule them all.

    I have:
    -Mega 8 core intel desktop with 32Gb ram and 3x nVme ssds for vid editing etc
    -Dell gaming laptop (1060, 16Gb ram)
    -Surface Pro 7 (16Gb)

    With a quad core (or sexy hex core) and TB3 I could 'consider' having one machine with an external gpu for mild gaming. But, saying that, there's the Book 2 15". I just love my Surface Pro far too much to let the form factor go.

    Is the hover distance increased? That's the biggest thing which I can't get past, esp. on a device w/ a larger screen.

    I'll right. I'll bite. Why do you think this is true? What about the slim pen changes the experience so dramatically, even without the pixel sense chipset? Although honestly, even with the Pixel sense chipset, I still felt like the last gen was really only "acceptable", and not nearly as responsive as EMR.
