    Didn't they originally say USI will debut by the end of 2016? Then 2017? Now they're saying 2018. Until we can actually hold them in our hands they're vaporware. At least Qualcomm had a single product that used their cool ultrasonic pen. Shame it didn't do well, I really like the phrase "ultrasonic pen".

    Does anyone have any more information on the differences between the base 1749$ model compared with the next model up?

    The only real differences....beyond the specific flavor of i7 core....was really just the RAM and SSD sizes. The Base model was supposed to be 8GB of Ram and 128GB SSD. With the next model bumping the SSD to 256GB....next model bumping the SSD to 512GB and the ram to 16GB, and then the next model bumping the SSD to 1TB and Ram to 32GB.

    But sadly the $1749 Base Model.....seems to be now a $2279 Base Model.

    looking at the tech specs on their website now, it appears quad core is NOT an option?? I thought this thing was getting a 25W quad core... A low voltage dual core (7600U) is NOT the most powerful tablet in the world.

    Was I just misunderstanding earlier posts? Was this machine ever supposed/advertised to have a quad core CPU??

    :(:mad:

    HP stated in the datasheet that 8th gen processors are coming in early 2018:

    (Page 7)
    "**HP ZBook x2 G4 detachable pc is planned to be available for shipment with the above Intel® 7th generation processors in December 2017 and Intel 8th Gen processors in early 2018."

    No need to flip the tables just yet. ;)

    While the i7-7600u is at base levels a 15 watter.....there are 25-28w Dual Core options. Case in point both the Cintiq Companion 2 and Mobile Studio Pro. with use 28w Dual Core cpus.
