    I wonder if the screen orientation is able to flip or rotate when turned upside down, not ideal but the screen could be put on the desk while the base sticks up at an angle to use the pen.

    It's about the only way you could use the pen to ink, I remove the keyboard from my pro when using the pen extensively.
    Yes you can rotate the screen upside down and use the screen flat on a table. the plus side is you will get all the attention from people for using a laptop the other way round.

    Isnt that already what Surface Book offers? To be both a tablet and a PC?
    hey there, yes it does. of course it is priced higher than the surface laptop, but thats the point of the surface book: a device to fit the 2 in 1 category.

    Im wondering this too. While its a beautiful laptop, it doesnt take advantage of the interesting thing about windows 10, which is touch input... I'm into its beauty, but disappointed by its lack of forward thinking...

    Its also almost like why should any laptop not spin 360? Many people may not use it, but its always nice to have!

    True, but the Book is annoying since you have to detach all peripherals when you want to switch it. Its beautiful as a tablet, but no ports :(

    hey jmork, im totally okay with this. i prefer to type everything instead of write so this form is okay with me. if i liked to write then i would buy the surface pro instead as it is both an excellent writing pad and pc.

    I think they dropped the ball by not including the 360 hinge

    Owning a HP Specter X360, I've already seen some benefits of its folding capabilities, mainly for stand purposes and sometimes so I can have the screen closer to me when I'm watching movies. Still, not having 360 capabilities is not a deal breaker, I consider it more as an added bonus.

    IMHO, I think a big part of the market is not yet ready to embrace convertibles seeing them mainly just as a gimmick. I mean its not a feature you're required to use. Its just good that the 360 capability is there when you need it but then again, this will cater to ordinary people who prefer traditional laptops.

    msft made a computer that fit into a traditional notebook form factor for those who simply want a premium notebook.

    they already have a surface book - primarily a notebook that can turn into a tablet. they have the surface pro - primarily a tablet that can turn into a notebook.

    from that perspective, it kinda makes sense. touch interface is just a common feature across the surface line.

    Not everyone wants a convertible laptop. Some of us just want a thin and light laptop with amazing build quality, and without the compromises that comes with a 360/detachable screen. Luckily for us, MS has built laptops for both categories.
