    Maybe it's like the 500t that has a clear protective sticker on the button which fell off after a day or 2.

    On the Samsung the Win button had a protective clear plastic sticker on it, so maybe try removing it. I'd be surprised if the sticker was meant to stay.

    Looking at TPT2 drivers (Mouse and Keyboard/Atmel Touch Debug Port Driver), the README file says that it installs the "maxTouch I2C Boot Bridge Peripheral Driver", which is described at Touchscreen Controllers - Atmel Corporation.
    IMO that means that Amtel supports both pen and touch until proven otherwise.

    I'm eager to show the inking performance on this device, particularly using OneNote 2013 (using RTM trial, as release preview version is laggy on more powerful machines).

    Thanks for the initial impressions!

    How does the battery life hold up at max. brightness? What does the power manager gauge say? :)

    The Australian TPT2 spec sheet lists a Wacom Digitizer and Pen (link).

    Installed Office 2010. Inking in Word and Onenote is a very pleasant experience. No noticeable lag with narrow inks, slight lag when using a very thick inks. Onenote's transcription is amazingly accurate.

    Inking is at least on par with the youtube vids I've seen of the 500t.

    Haven't done any battery tests yet.

    WEI is in the notes on the first post. I'll look into WPrime.

    How do you guys think this compares to the Dell Latitude 10? I am torn on which one I should get. The Dell has a full SD card slot and a removable battery but it does not have a silo tray. It also has an optional Wacom digitzer. Which one should I order?
