    Niiiiice. I configured 16gb ram and 256 tlc ssd, fingerprint reader, lower end cpu and display, 1yr warranty, and came out to just a hair over $2k. Now that is more like it.

    Obviously, the 8th gen Intel cpus are going to add a few hundred back onto that, but if HP keeps this up I'm tentatively back on the Zbook x2 train. (They all need to stop. My legs are getting sore from all this train jumping.)

    From memory, the preconfigs had included the Adobe cloud suite software, valued at $479. They no longer do. At $2421.65 with the 15% off code, the price on the 16gb/512gb model is still more than the reg price minus $479 for the Adobe software.

    Is my memory faulty?

    2849 * .85 = 2421.65
    2849 - 479 = 2370
    2787 - 479 = 2308

    Sorry but does someone have the link to customize them? I'm only finding a list of preconfigured units I can't customize specifics on.

    ...I went though the customizing exercise about a month ago. The resulting price wasn't too persuasive.

    However, I'm waiting to see what they do with the 8th gen Intel devices. I imagine that the price will only go up...!

    They charge $193 for a Windows 10 Pro license? Crazy.

    I just really, really hope that the pen for this, or the Acer Switch 7 is compatible w/ the new EMR implementation as used on the newer Samsung devices (Samsung Galaxy Book 10/12, Galaxy Tab S3, Notebook 9, &c.) --- do we have a formal name for this yet?

    Configured with 8th-gen quad-core CPU, DreamColor display, 32GB RAM, 256GB MLC SSD, plus my own Windows 10 Pro license, brings this to $3200. For professional photographers only?
