    Hah, yeah it's a fairly chunky laptop. Do you tend to draw with your tablet pc completely flat? I've gotten used to keeping my cintiq at an angle, and that's the way I do it with laptops as well because of easy access to ctrl, alt, shift etc. They could've done the flip/tent mode with this design, but I tend to look at it as a workstation laptop first with the added bonus of a Wacom stylus.

    I am use to both flat and angled.

    Even with Cintiq, I kept it flat as possible. With Miix 700, I have the kickstand all the way down in landscape, and in portrait, it's flat on the desk.

    I can't do the whole giant keyboard between me and the screen set up. It keeps the screen to far for me and awkward to draw that way IMO.

    Thanks for all of the info on this thread. I used the Dell Precision M6600 for inking for a time, but the screen would not lay flat like this machine.

    As to that bizarre interchange re: Windows 7 vs 10, I use Windows 10 on mission critical systems for patient care. Windows 10 works reliably, end of story.

    Yes the P40 and P50 pens should be interchangeable although I haven't tested either machine personally.

    Anyone has compared 1080p and 4k version? Same other specs but 4k charges extra $200..(on ebay)

    I think only the FHD models are AES. The Thinkpad Pen Pro should work on all three devices.

    Looks like we might see an announcement of the P51 at CES next week.

    A Thinkpad P51 was certified this month in Germany, Lenovo's product codes for the P51 are 20HH and 20HJ (the current P50's are 20EN and 20EQ).

    Also certified was a Thinkpad P51s, with manufacturer part number TP00085A and product codes 20HB 20HC 20JY 20K0.
