    So I was thinking about buying a laptop/convertible/2in1 that would support inking and would possibly have a dedicated GPU (not a necessity) so basically something that would be similar to Surface just not Surface. Why would I not buy a Surface? I came to a rational conclusion (after a long time) that Surface costs more than I am willing to spend on a device because I am not sure that I could keep that device for about 5 years (yes I am looking for a device that could last from 3-5 years) - while it does have some nice features I do not think that the CPU and integrated GPU will still be powerful enough in 2-3 years. Any help with device manufacturers/models greatly appreciated.

    Lenovo's ThinkPad Yoga 14 (I think, whatever is recent) comes to mind.
    I believe the 14 model (or was it 15?) now has pen-input along with a discrete GPU. It didn't have a pen a couple years ago which is why I sprung for the smaller 12 model sans the GPU.

    Did you mean this one?
    It looks like something I might be looking for but the prices aren't available yet unfortunately

    Oh no not that, I went looking around and it looks like it's now known as the ThinkPad Yoga 460, but there's no discrete graphics option on the website at least...

    New Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 14 or ThinkPad Yoga 460 review

    This is what I was talking about but I'm not sure the combination I mentioned can be found...
