    I also did get confirmation from Kupa directly. The pen is pressure sensitive the same as the Surface Pro, it's just missing the same WinTab drivers. So 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity in OneNote, MS Office, ArtRage, Auto desk, etc...

    I love the 16:10 display on my Q552. I prefer it to the 16:9 display that was on my Surface.

    I was wondering if the lack of pressure sensitivity is a Lenovo issue that will require a direct fix by them, or a Windows 8 problem that will be fixed by the solution they are currently working on. Does anyone with knowledge about the issue know why it doesn't work, and what will need to happen in order to get it fixed.

    I have an order in for the Helix to be delivered next week, and I'm wondering if I should keep it. I'm a digital artist, and a fix to this issue is very important to me.

    When Microsoft fixes the Surface Pro pen pressure issue, will this fix be able to be used by the Helix?

    Is this tablet actually being sold and shipped now? I am fairly interested in it as an engineering student. Does anyone have a link to where I can purchase it if it is available?

    ExcaliberPC.com has some in stock now if you want to jump on it. Not sure why certain retailers and customers were given access to the device before others could even pre-order from Lenovo, but whatever.

    Do you think the price is about the same as what lenovo will be retailing it at when they open their pre-orders?
