Gotcha now :) 

Ya I know how the deal is, but this time it actually sounds like a real deal thing that I may want to invest in, that or wait for the final product to be released to the public and purchase it that way. Most like the later will happen knowing myself. meh.

Pretty cool but I'm betting it will be a lot more expensive than the backer price when it finally hits the market.

Also, the lack of any kind of external video port is kind of confusing. Seems like a huge oversight.

Does the pen fit into the body? That'd be a huge plus IMO.

The specs seem promising at that price.  Design looks good.  It's all up to manufacturing to pull it off now!  If they don't sell enough units, economies of scale might not kick in and price could go way up?

I don't think so, but it'll definitely go up if it ever launches as a retail product.

Looks good with even more useful ports than the new MacBook Pro :)

 

But it also runs W10 so that's an instant no-no.

You don't like W10? Odd. I like it.

Doesn't really work that way. They didn't have to pay anything for marketing. They didn't have to pay any employee costs, let alone the salary of the 1,000 people that apparently worked on it. That would raise the price quite substantially.

I'd also wonder how many hardware iterations they went through. Most manufacturers try several before finding one that's the most ideal.

There is thunderbolt 3 (USB C). So it will support external displays trough an adapter.
The pen will not fit into the body, just look at its size compared to the Eve V:

They dont have to pay employee cost for those 1000, but they do for those that actually work for the company.

Its little bit strange, yes, as it is a direct competitor to Surface, but It does run pure windows 10 and might be able to buy in the Microsoft Store when it comes to retail.
What Microsoft did is pretty much help them get Windows 10 work perfectly with all the Windows 10 features and stuff like that.

Microsoft have changed to the better after they got a new CEO.

Intel helped the company with the design of the cooling solution and things like that.

I'm aware. I was simply pointing out that the other companies that it's compared to DO have to pay those overheads, and as a result their costs are higher.

I don't think Thunderbolt is an appropriate replacement for a standard connector yet. An adapter isn't a great solution either.

A mini HDMI/DP port takes up hardly any room.

I think it's pretty interesting though I have concerns about build quality, Microsoft is on par with Apple in that regard so it will be hard for a company this small to match it. Also the pen is barely mentioned in the marketing so it seems like more of an afterthought as opposed to a core feature like the surface. Then again the lower price is more attractive and for students the lower powered Y series won't matter too much.

We can wait and see :)

I am guessing the pen is the same tech as surface 4.

I'm glad Eve learned a lesson from Microsoft about making batteries of a reasonable size.

 

Sits and looks at Pro 4 with 39Whr battery......

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

True, I do not disagree. Dongle free is the best. I dont know why they didnt have mini DP, I wish it had. but for me it isnt deal breaking (if I could afford it) because I dont really use external screens with my laptop, and when I need to do it in school, its always VGA. And having VGA on a new computer today is stupid if it isnt like a lenovo or something.

Oh me either, I just know tonnnnnnnns of people that do need that functionality.

Not gonna lie, I almost bought one. But I already have an 8" tablet and a 13" ultrabook so it just didn't have justification.

That's all fine until the company get so many returns that they can't process them properly or worse: if they go bankrupt. Then you're fucked.

probably will, but my idea of a E-GPU is just a Thunderbolt 3 to PCIe 16x slot cable, a big as all hell GPU and a 300W PSU :P so basically bulky as all hell lol

I had the razer blade stealth, bought some tools for custom e-GPU but the HDMI to USBC ran out of stock on amazon.. I had to return my RBS so didn't get to test it. But I'm for sure the external PCIE x16 with HDMI to HDMI on laptop doesn't work.

i just wish i could rip out the wifi card in my laptop from school and stick a PCIe 1x to 16x converter cable in there and run one of my GTX 660s instead of the shitty FirePro GPU thats equivlent of a GTX660m which is about as bad as it gets whist still beeing able to play games at 1080p lol, wont do 60fps at 1080p on lowest settings in CS:GO xD 


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The Cassette Deck!

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

Yeah it certainly doesn't look like Wacom, however the pen tech being the same doesn't necessarily mean the implementation is as good.

The original goal of the surface line is to force OEMs to make better more premium products. They would rather sell you software then hardware.
