  • Even though the HP Envy x2 is arguably a better always connected device - cheaper and better build quality - (sans the 850 chip of course) I’m still happy Samsung is in the ACPC game if for no other reason than their influence with mobile carriers. More than anyone else they can make ACPC mainstream. Still want eSim though. Would love to take my device on vacation and not worry about dual sim.
  • As much as I would like to believe that, it's just not gonna happen. I love my GB2 sort of. It's better than my Surface 3 LTE, but people just aren't going to flock to ACPC when they realize it's gimped because it can't run certain applications. Yes I know what it's purpose is, but if MS is not going to even make an ACPC surface, I sometimes just believe it will meet the fate of R/T. I would like to be proven wrong, but I just find too many applications showing up in the store that aren't compatible with the ARM architecture that I would like. The main being VitalSource Bookshelf that need for my training class. But I knew what I was getting into when I bought it so I'm hoping that it just moves forward. And I don't know about the HP being better. Cheaper by far, but the hardware on this product is just A-1.
