Re: Microsoft really have no clue
Okay tell me WHAT i-Series Lenovo with WACOM/NTRIG digitiser exists or is announced that is cheaper than a comparable S/P3?
The TPT10 - is Baytrail and the tablet pc versions are costly(1)
The TP Yoga - costs about the same, is a convertible (heavy!) and has less battery life
The cheaper Lenovo units - are tablets not tablet pc
Same for other devices. They either use a sub-standard stylus (DELL), have technical and support problems and/or low battery life (Sony Tab/Flip), are VERY costly (Fujitsu), are lower powered (HP) or bigger and less "mobile" and more "transportable" (ACER R7-572).
If I use a S/P2 (or any other tablet pc) in cramped conditions - I do not take out the keyboard. I pull out the stylus. That's the main selling feature of tablet pc compared to touch only tablets(2) the very mature software supporting handwriting and handwriting recognition (Bonus: The offline speech recognition of Windows is quite capabel as well)
(1) Possibly worth the money if you insist on 3G/LTE on board
(2) Oh, the S/P3 is not a penabled device since it is NTRIG not Wacom
