    But isn't the 4770HQ still more powerful? And the Z Canvas is 1.5+ pounds lighter!

    Single-core definitely not, multi-core yes against the dual-core processors, no against the quad-core processors.

    Yup. Anyway now there are other contenders, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga (3.08 lbs) and the Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 (4.3 lbs)

    I'd say the X1 Yoga is the best overall, with the tiny downside of not having face buttons and "only" a WQHD display.

    I'm starting to feel like I bought my device too early, with quad-core and 100% Adobe RGB becoming standard...

    I would wait until real world benchmarks come in before making any calls.

    Performance will be determined heavily by thermal efficiency, for which the Z Canvas design is still the best in the industry as far I know. The ZBX2 will have a 15-25W (Core i7-8650U) + 35W (Quadro M620) TDP which will be equally if more difficult to cool under full load than the 47W (Core i7-4770HQ). Passmark scores are roughly similar for both, so it will really come down to cooling performance.

    By the way, ZBX2 with 8th-gen CPUs are actually out in the wild at, CES @2:19:



    So the config that everyone is looking for is definitely on its way! ;)

    Entry-level model going at $1823... Still no quad-core models in sight. Other pen devices with 4K dispalys, 100% Adobe RGB color, and quad-core processors are right around the corner. The ZBook X2 isn't unique any more.

    Anything specific announced? I didn't catch another device being announced.

    Well, it's still unique in terms of Wacom EMR and detachability...
    So I hope Dell can release a detachable version of their Precision series mobile workstation (maybe with Kaby Lake G instead of R) to compete with HP's Zbook X2.

    Which EMR-based models, current or upcoming, have built-in buttons? So far I know of Wacom MobileStudio and HP ZBook X2. Any others?
