    I'm sorry, but that instantly turned into meme of Tim Cook in my mind. :D

    (Nothing against the man, I think he is great especially his philanthropy)

    One article mentioned the SS pen might have additional electronics compared to the SP4.

    While I'm skeptical of that, did you happen to notice any differences between the pens? That test was done using the SS pen on both right?

    The pens seem exactly the same. It was default SP4/SB pen.

    So you're overall impression compared to drawing on a Cintiq? I see a little bit of stroke lag, but I'm sure that's actually Photoshop CC.

    You didn't by any chance test a lightweight drawing app (like the SAI v2 beta) did you?

    Hard to compare to Cintiq due to the pen having noticeably higher initial detection force. But I can see this thing being my favorite drawing thingie EVAR if it supports Wacom gen 13 USI pens.

    Re: the IAF video, @Shogmaster, did you adjust the Surface Studio's pressure curve at all before the test? If not, did you zero out any adjustments to the Dell's tip sensitivity?

    How did you get to test Photoshop? Does the Century City store have it pre-installed on their Studios? The Miami store only had Sketchable.

    Did you try out any other software? Photoshop looks really laggy but it may just be the video exaggerating the effect.
