Now that's "genius".

Yep, I thought so too. I walked in expecting to fight for a discount on a new product, or thinking I would need to upgrade and try to get some sort of discount for the old one - so I was a pleasantly shocked. I stayed until had all my software reinstalled and tested the screen, the stylus, etc and they fed me and kept asking if I wanted anything else to drink.
You might want to try the Surface Pro 6 and the Surface Book 2 - they keep improving the touch and stylus experience. Interestingly, MS bought the N-trig technology that we used to hate (in favor of Wacom, which Samsung bought) - so I bought a Samsung NotePro 12.2 tablet for that very reason, but the OS sucked, so I bought my Surface Book - it's stylus actually provides a better experience than the Samsung.engelhjs wrote: ↑November 1st, 2018, 1:13 pmI almost sprung for a Surface Pro a couple of years ago. I loved the idea of having more or less full blown Adobe CC available on a tablet. The one thing that kept me away was the garbage stylus. If Adobe can follow up Photoshop for the new iPad Pro with at least Illustrator and InDesign I'm ditching a laptop all together in favor of the iPad Pro.
The Samsung pen is essentially a mini Wacom pen, right? I'm perfectly happy with feel of Wacom pens, I use one every day, but I was pretty blown away the first time I used the Apple Pencil, which I initially expected to be just okay. It's size, weight, and balance felt more comfortable and natural than the chunkier but lighter Wacom pen, and the build quality was unmatched. To each their own for sure, but to me the Pencil feels so good (and the Surface Pen - at least the old one - feels so bad) I'm willing to wait a bit longer for my best-case-scenario of Adobe CC on the iPad.
