    I'm not sure I understand why they need that ridiculous resolution. You'll need a car battery to power the processor that will fill those pixels if you want to run for a day. I wouldn't mind having a high 20's inch 4k screen for my pc though :nerd:

    This tablet is targeted for cg artists. It has the right size and decent processing power to create a digital canvas on a go. Should have some accelerator keys to be perfect.

    I'm sorry, but there is nothing "on the go" about a 20" display device. It won't even fit in any standard sized laptop bag or backpack (at least not comfortably). You're basically carrying around an LCD monitor with no stand attached to it.

    Cool for cool's sake as far as I'm concerned.

    I'm sorry too, but what I see is that you're not a cg artist to understand the needs for this type of hardware. Yes it's big, yes it's heavy, yes it has short battery life. But there's nothing better than this in the market for portable digital art. We don't even know the accessories that comes with it. Mabe it comes with a stand, a wireless keyboard and a carrying bag.
    I don't even see any utility in the ipad and yet it sells like candy.

    Lol, its not a " media tablet ", its a professional tablet aimed at professional.
    It is not really designed for an use outside your office or outside the house. ( for graphist, Photoshop, architecture, design etc . ( And the price will not be the same of an Ipad or any other media tablet. )

    Core I5 + Nvidia graphics + 128Gb SSD , 4 to 16gb of DDR3 ,Win 8 pro x64, digital pen ...

    Man they really need to get a grip of batteries and battery life before they start pumping these crazy high resses out.

    Battery life About 2 hours (when using built-in battery) lol, thats pizz poor.

    Thats brand new, after a few month of usage the battery will only last maybe an hour.

    I was worried about the same when thinking about Nexus 10, but it's not an issue.

    We don't need high resolution just for the sake of resolution. The point is that the text is more readable, and you can see more detail. Also, some tablets are extremely power-efficient when the image is not changing, so it's actually good for reading.

    Still, 1cm thickness would make me scared of breaking it + 2.4kg is quite a lot for a tablet.

    Crazy specs(for tablet) with a crazy battery life to go with them.. Oh...

    And all you that say "You are not a artist, prof. etc.", when you buy it, yes you, the Artists and Pros, PLEASE I would love to hear your thoughts/reviews on it after a week/month use.

    Likely because it's a 20" screen and has a core i5 in it as opposed to most other tablets with a 10" screen.

    i5 tablets have never been great on battery life.
