    I'm fondly remembering the day that I got that $35 Surface pen along with the $650 Surface Pro 4 128GB deal including Alcantara signature cover from best buy. Those were the days..

    So, need a bit of clarification. Does the Pro X run the "full" version of W10 or W10Pro?

    ..but but it includes a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter in the box! Actually, with two USB-C ports, it's not as bad as the situation on the iPhone, where with a headphone dongle connected you can't charge the phone..

    MS went full apple here. for reference the Apple Pencil 2 was 130, and its keyboard is 199 for the 12in. so technically MS is cheaper

    From the Microsoft online listing for the Slim Pen:

    "...exceptional pressure sensitivity..."

    I wonder if this is the pen that is finally going to win over our artist members.

    I assume that it will also work on the Surface Pro...???

    I’m highly skeptical about this thing after using an iPad Pro 12.9.

    Unless they have made major changes to the N-trig technology, And the screen refresh rate is more than 60 Hz... I just don’t get the appeal. I guess the appeal is running full windows apps on arm? Or do apps have to be specially compiled for arm to run?

    I do really dig be always on nature and long battery life of the iPad. It’s quite incredible device. Drawing on it beats Wacom in many ways for me, but I suspect it’s the smoothness of iOS and a 120 hz screen.
