    Broadwell, a 1080p display with options for either anti-glare or glossy, a dedicated GPU (GT 840M), pen support.

    Looks like we have a new contender for the strongest pen-enabled mobile device.

    The pen seems to be using the same Wacom tech that the new Toshibas are using, since the spec sheet says it's battery powered.

    Oh, there's a product page now?

    I spend days jumping through links after CES and now it pops up?

    It's been up for a while actually. Oddly the analogous one for the 12 also exists, but it's blank. I honestly don't know what's going on with their web team..

    Some discussion of the pen tech starting here, and a related discussion here.

    I don't like my days to fly by so quickly, (it's already January 12th fer crying out loud! I'm still working on stuff I'd intended to have wrapped up before Christmas.)

    But February can't come quickly enough when it comes to this tablet!

    (Trying to keep my enthusiasm down to a minimum, though.)

    Anyone know if this uses Wacom digitizers? The word is Wacom is still unwilling to make digitizers for displays larger than 12" unless it's for their own products, and the Yoga 14 and 15 use a new pen from Intel.

    My bad. So apparently it's some "new" Wacom tech that uses batteries. Hopefully it won't affect the general "feel" of the pen while improving accuracy (especially on the edges).

    Just started playing with Encore 2 Write. The feel of the Wacom AES pen is quite different, not nearly as fluid as EMR. It definitely doesn't feel like 2,048 levels of pressure. On the other hand, it seems to be much less jittery than N-Trig and equally accurate. No inadvertent blots on the beginning of strokes like Shogmaster demonstrated with Fresh Paint.
