    I'm resetting my tpt2 to its factory settings.

    It is very small. My Asus 810 dwarfs it.

    Since its screen is just 1.5" smaller, it means they have done a good job in designing it.

    It seems that TPT2 wont read external powerless Hard Drives ( Passport HD, etc. ) . Thats really annoying .

    So I read that the TPT2 stylus is not spring loaded, and it's like the Samsung Slate 5 that takes a lot of force to yank it out. Is there any Atom slate that has a decent pen design out there?!

    Give an OTG micro usb adapter a try with the 2 usb Y cables. Might work.

    After a factory reset, got my mic back. However, still showing system interrupts in the task manager. Could someone else who has the TPT2 check their system manager for this? Perhaps it's normal.

    It's not spring loaded, but doesn't take much force to remove.

    Just got mine from Newegg. I am setting it up right now. So far, compared to my Acer W510, it is about the same size but build quality appears better. It is slightly slower, likely due to the Win 8 Pro. I'd say the Acer has better screen quality--brighter screen with more realistic colors. It's fairly significant just looking at the desktop wallpaper which is a nice picture of a mountain landscape. The Lenovo also is yellow tint biased, whereas the Acer looks slightly blueish.

    Just tried the pen, which is the main reason I bought this--compared to my Vaio Duo, it performs wonderfully. The actual accuracy needs work when the pen is tilted to the side when writing but it is sufficient and I didn't have many accuracy mistakes. It is way better than the 500T. The pen rejection seems to start a lot higher up than the Sony and the Samsung, which is good for Windows Journal (which I prefer over OneNote). Suffice it to say, I wrote a paragraph and had no rogue palm marks on the screen, something I could never do on my Sony. I didn't notice much lag (there was a TINY bit but nothing to write home about). Oh, and I can confirm other Wacom pens work on the screen. So this is indeed Wacom!

    Is the screen on tpt2 matte? I remember w510 is glossy (correct me if I am wrong).
