For me this is the first device to really offers it all per say. Up till this.....the Cintiq Companions and Mobile Studio Pro were the only modern devices with programmable Express Keys, and that alone is a huge plus for me. I have the Express Key Remote, the Surface Dial, and a few third party mini gaming controls jury rigged for shortcuts....and for me they are all still subpar to having physical Express Keys on the bezel. Having them on the bezel and being able to cradle them with your hand makes me feel more connected to the whole drawing experience and makes it easier for me to focus. Its like both hands are fully occupied so I'm less prone to distractions by grabbing other things, etc. The remote/dial I tend to move around a lot and have trouble getting into a comfortable position. The other week at NYCC, I got to play with the Cintiq Pro 16 at the Wacom booth....the lack of Express Keys kind of killed it for me.....like it had the bezel.....felt perfect to cradle......but not having those keys was just to infuriating. Also...the MSP makes a great drawing tablet, but a poor laptop replacement.....the Lack of a kickstand or any official stand really holds the device back, and while you could use a Bluetooth keyboard.....when you're on the go with limited desk space.....it's just a cumbersome set up. Like my Mobile Studio Pro doesn't replace my Surface Pro 3 or even Galaxy Book 10.6......when I need to do typing or laptop related tasks. But on the other side....the Pro 3, Galaxy Book, and Switch 7.......don't have Express Keys. The HP ZBX2 has the Express Keys, and the kickstand and detachable keyboard cover make it more suitable to serve as a laptop replacement when needed. The HP ZBX2 is the first device to really give us our cake and allow us to eat it too. And I'm not sure where HP is going to sell this thing....but for all we know.....this could easily pop up on the display rack at Best Buy or The Microsoft Store.......allowing us to try it before we buy it.......which is typically not the case with Wacom products. Also we might get better return, warranty, and repair options from the crappy service Wacom offers. After my CC2 crapped out right around the time of the MSP release......I was nuts to go back to Wacom after their last expensive tablet failed me, but they were the only game in town really.....It was before S-Pen EMR made a comeback to Windows and everything else was n-trig/AES. This ZBX2....totally changes the game.
