    I'd buy one today if they would release an update that would allow the e-ink to be the primary windows display. It would be great in tablet mode and outside lighting in general

    Settings--->Display, should be able to switch primary display there, provided the e-ink part is listed as a display. Maybe that is what Clone Mode is about?

    Thanks! I'll have to borrow our writers unit and try it out.

    The eink screen is not a display. It's a USB peripheral.

    Yes that's what I thought. Tried it and still only a keyboard, drawing pad or PDF, epub reader. Well maybe next version

    Wouldn't it then be possible to install DisplayLink driver and run it as a second screen?

    It is not recognized as a display. Not even a USB display. It is it's own usb device that transfers information to and from the computer, either sending keystrokes or pen motions or opening files from the hard drive in it's own separate ereader software, but it is not a display.

    I read somewhere that they actually had the eInk screen displaying
    Windows. But it was so slow, they feared the consumer would become frustrated
    with it and axed the feature.

    I hope the PDF annotation will allow us to draw / markup the pdf with
    the pen, not just type in annotations.

    Well, I'm borrowing it from Best Buy (found open box fr $600), but I ain't keepin it. The digitizer's grid density SUCKS. The diagonal jitter is very noticeable. Not acceptable for a $1000+ machine that only came with 4GB of RAM ffs. I can't possibly try to replace my Helix 2nd gen with this thing...

    Sorry for asking, but can I see a demo of using e ink display as graphic tablet? I want to see how it performs before buying it but can't find any. I have been cursing at direction of Lenovo's HQ every morning before I take a morning shower for entirety of this year for releasing yogabook without proper drawing function, so this is big news for me. I hope it's just like original yogabook... I hope.
