    Bought mine about 20 days ago. Surprisingly easy to type on at decent speeds. I love the eink display for reference and reading. no lighting on the eink or Lenovo style key light stinks. not being able to use the eink as a 2nd display in windows for any or at least select apps is a big missed opportunity. Deal breaker so far is the lack of basic windows integration with the einkj display. No morphing or customized keyboard functions? No windows ai or typing suggestions? No adjusting toolbars or second screen demo functionality to encourage developers? No send to function, hit or miss on clipboard sharing, and seriously, how hard is it to tell windows when the tablet is folded up so it can detect and enable/disable tablet mode accordingly? Performance is pretty good for the form factor, which is foolishly thin at the cost of runtime. hoping we get more updates as time goes on. a little too little for the 1000$ asking price imo.

    To anyone who owns this model.
    Can you reflow(make the text larger) pdf's
    on the e-Ink side?

    Can you see the keyboard in the dark?

    thanks

    I don't think you can reflow PDFs, but because you have the Windows side, you can open the PDF in word, up the font size and re-export as PDF. Not exactly on the fly, but would result in larger text.

    The eInk screen has no lighting, so if you want to see the keyboard in the dark, you'd have to crank up the main screen brightness and angle it down a bit. Because of the completely flat typing surface, touch typing is hit or miss. It takes getting used to.

    They had them on sale on the Levono website.
    This is a really neat computer.

    There is a driver posted so the eBook side also supports .mobi and .epub
    formats as well as the .pdf

    I have a question:
    When my eInk screen goes to rest(display off set to 10 minutes),
    How do you get your book back?

    When I hit the power button, the eInk screen goes to the drawing mode,
    with only the keyboard for another choice.

    I have to open and re-orient the tablet to lanscape to get the 3 choices back on
    the keyboard side. Then I get the eBook reader option. Is this normal?

    Is a screen protector needed for the Windows side? It gets put down on its face when in eReader mode. Does it scratch up easily

    I have anti glare screen protectors on both screens, partially because I hate glare and partially because I like the feel of a matte writing surface.

    I don't really use it for ebooks, so I'm afraid I have no advise for the sleep issue.

    I cut down a Surface 3 matte screen protector I had.
    It sure make all the difference to view and to write on.

    Did you get extra tips for your pen?
    Where do you get them if not?

    It still shuts off for no apparent reason at times.
    (Ususally happens when folded back-to-back.)
    Have not figured out what I am doing to cause this.

    No reflow to make text larger on PDF's
    Yes, have to convert to text and enlarge fonts, then re-convert to PDF
    Clunky, but works. Disappointing you can't write on the PDF's

    Thanks for everyone's tips

    I saw where they have released an update that allows the e-ink side to support EPUB format files. Has anyone tried any and if so how is it?
    Thanks,

    It works. It will open epubs. But that's about it. I cant figure put how to adjust fonts or margins, so I'm not really a fan of how things have come out with the few books I've tried. I do mean to spend more time trying to figure it out, but haven't had the time yet.

    Thanks, sounds like it's similar to the way it handles PDFs. Kind of disappointing.
