    Agreed. The lack of communication is very upsetting. I have until the 16th before I have to simply give up on one of these and will buy something else out of necessity, otherwise it won't arrive in time for what I need it for. My X61 just doesn't cut it anymore.

    The Dell XPS line would probably be my first place to look. The Inspiron 13 7000 doesn't have dedicated graphics, but it does have a digitizer, and looking at the forums here the new pen is actually decent. I'd have to try that one in person first, though, the 1st gen Synaptics digitizer pens were easily the worst input method I'd used in a decade.

    Does anyone know how to select the glossy/glare or anti glare option on the US website? It lists boh as an option but I can't seem to find where to select before adding to cart.

    Also has anyone gone from the TY 14 to the 15? Thoughts?

    Well, I went from the 14 to 15, and other than size I don't see any difference. I didn't open the 14 up, so I don't know if there are any internal changes. Having the numpad on the 15 is nice.

    How is the build quality on the 15? I have the current 14 and the build seems less than I thought it would be. Lot of flex in the keyboard and a lot of plastic creaks.

    Also is the screen on the 15 glossy or do you actually have the option?

    There's the Sony Vaio Flip 15 and the Acer R7-572G.I recently (maybe yesterday) saw an Acer r7-572G listed on ebay with dedicated graphics and 16gb RAM.The digitizer is Ntrig like the one in the surface pro 3.

    I think that's a general truth about dual core 15U vs. i 7U cpus in all devices, Lotta $ for little performance difference.

    Build quality seems the same, but I think the build quality is nice. I don't have any creeks, keyb seems nice. It makes some noise when I fold to tablet, but that's the panel raising to recess the keys.

    At the rate the Lenovo is moving to have a fully operational TPY with digitizer, I'm now thinking that they might as well spec it with Windows 10...

    I ventured into here to ask if the digitizer model was released yet, but then I realized I'm the thread OP and the thread is 6 months old.

    I sent a message to the Lenovo help desk and this was the response:

    "Send help! They keep us locked in cubicles and tell us nothing. Oh god, I have to go. The guard is returning."

    I'm not sure what all of that means, but it doesn't sound like the digitizer is a top priority.
