Hello everybody! It’s nice to see the community is well and alive. I was thinking to myself why in the Windows tablet market, there is no near perfect drawing tablet solution.
Surface pro for instance:
- has issues on parallax
- It’s not exactly accurate
- its tilt support is not like a real pencil
- its nib break easily.
I always thought iPad pro was useless until I tried one. One of my friends brought one home and I was bored so I asked him if I could use it and he said yes. So I used the pen and in a moment, and my whole opinion on it had changed ! You have to experience it yourself !!! It’s so smooth and responsive, It’s like a pencil ! You can shade on it and the tilt support is awesome. It’s not flawless, for instance, it doesn’t have any pointer unlike Wacom or Surface products, but it’s very enjoyable to write on. The newest iteration that I did not try is more pencil like and does not require a battery. It connects magnetically and charges, it’s what Surface pro did except it doesn’t charge.
I was thinking to myself, if there would be a way to run Windows on this device either through screen mirror or emulation ( mirroring is unresponsive I believe, not sure though and emulation is just not available ).
The thing is, iPad pro has a lot of pros
- it has a perfect camera for a tablet
- it’s a nearly perfect writing device (If they add more buttons, eraser and a pointer plus reduce the price, I wouldn’t have any more ideas on how they can improve it later on)
- its screen is way better than any tablet on the market (120 Hz !!!)
- it’s very portable (They’ve managed to decrease the thickness, don’t know how)
- it has way better speakers than tablet on the market
-it has a huge amount of battery and
- it packs a lot of power (That has room for debate)
- good price considering Wacom and other tablets
The thing is, even though it’s almost best in these categories, the cons are almost unbearable. They somehow managed to have the perfect balance between the best and worst.
- No software (Even if it has, it’s subscription based in which I despise)
- No proper keyboard and mouse !!! (A huge disappointment, the keyboard is a joke)
- No ports (Another huge rip off)
- IOS (Multitasking … )
OK, I said all of these, now my question is why there is no Windows tablet laptop maker that has drawing capabilities like IPad pro, is that hard to make? Is there any limitations? Why companies like HP can’t just mimic the pencil nib or technology. More importantly, why the don’t have any 120 Hz screen?
I don’t want to be annoying, your new projects seem very interesting, but I like to talk about tablets, so I say in the future, if Eve wanted to release a near perfect V2 and be realistic, I would say it has to have these :
- Intel Ice lake U, 3D stacked chip
- Intel 11th generation integrated graphics
- At least 8 hours of battery
- A decent speaker
- Camera doesn’t matter
- Personally I don’t care for the bezels, but for more sales you can include it, people like gimmicks
- A 120 Hz screen important!!!
- A 80$ Apple pencil with eraser, wireless charging and more pencil like shape plus two buttons
- A little bit less than QHD resolution
- Stand is not necessary if you can pack more battery ( Community decides )
- Keyboard is good enough
- On time delivery !
- You can support USB 4 standard
- Maybe the support for 3D Xpoint feature, non-volatile RAM ( Not sure if it comes as promised )
- DDR5 RAM
I try to be realistic, DDR5 RAM and all of these technologies should be available until 2020, not sure though, it depends on the companies (Still remember Cannon-Lake). Share your thoughts please !!!
One more thing, you should have Micro-SD and optional 5G plus a better modem.
