    EDIT: Enhanced is sold out. premium is still in stock.

    Antivirus wise, Kaspersky was the one I used to live and swear by but the safety wasn't enough to vouch for how much system resources it was consuming back in 2011. It might be different now we're in 2015 but I now use and still stick with Comodo paired with MBAM and superantispyware. It is not perfect but for the protection it offers with minimal system slowdown makes me feel it's a tough combination to beat. Not to mention this is all free.

    Anyways the enhanced and premium are up stateside but not the i5. Rather than waiting, I also purchased a premium hoping I get lucky. If not I can get some use out of the companion before deciding if i should commit to it or go with a surface pro 3.

    Is the charging cable the same for the CC1 and the CC2? I was interested in picking up a second one for work. One less thing to lug back and forth. I don't have my CC2- just preplaning.
    I'm assuming this would work:

    Ok thanks.
    So, does anyone have any suggestions on how to get my hands on another charge cable?

    @DaniJoy can you link the image of the spec sheet? My screen shows different gpu same cpu.

    If it's true this is good news for those who want top of the line, but for me I downgraded to the standard.

    the extra $435 isn't worth it to me even if it's worth it according to current market prices. I would want to see a +30% speed difference in everything done and know that in real world it's around +15% at best.

    I'm spoiled with my custom built desktop and there's no way any laptop can touch what my desktop can do.

    It must be a misprint in the wacom specs.(wouldn't be the first time.) I checked Intel's site. The 5th gen I7-5557u comes with Iris Graphics 6100.
    http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/core/core-i7-processor.html
    The 4th gen I5 4258u comes with Iris Grahics 5100.
    http://ark.intel.com/products/family/75024/4th-Generation-Intel-Core-i5-Processors#@Mobile. Didn't see any other graphic options for either cpu.
    So if you're getting the 5557u, you're getting 6100 Grahics.
