    Sorry but I am one of those who will pay more for something, than I probably should but I would not pay £3800 for a tablet regardless of who makes it unless it.

    I know how good the Toughbooks are but still, I think this is way overpriced.

    Remember that a 4K monitor alone will set you back from £1,600 to £3,000 at current prices.

    Interesting, this could be an alternative to the Wacom Cintiq. The stylus has 2048 pressure level and the position sensing has the same res has the screen (3840 points x 2560 points).

    Attach that to a nice arm and this could be great, plus unlike the Cintiq this beauty has the computer built in ! I which I had that amount of money to use, would make a nice digital painting toy.

    It all sounded good until the part about two hours per charge, that puts it on a rather short leash.

    I dunno, I've yet to find a tablet PC that can match a Cintiq for tracking strokes, they always start to lag out after a few minutes. Of course, I've never use a 4k tablet either, so maybe this one's different.

    True but the price of the 4K screens are just overpriced as it is.

    I am just waiting for a decent 27" or 30" monitor that is 4K 60Hz for around the £500 mark and then I will buy one but until then I am sticking, with my 1080p and the only way I am going to replace that with anything at the moment is if it breaks and then I will get a 1440p monitor if 4K monitors, are still overpriced.

    This is the price for new technology. I bought my 17" LCD in 2003 and paid 650€ for it ... 21" where around 1200€

    Yep new tech always brings a price tag with it.

    I just think they are overpriced, I want one but just not at that price.

    Rich gullible idiots should step forward and do their patriotic duty and buy this product, so as to bring down the price of 4K monitors for the plebs.

    Can someone explain the disparity about needing high end GPUs to run a 4K display and yet this is able to not only run a 4K display on a 745m GPU (not exactly high end is it?) but it can also do it with the cooling potential of a tablet.

    Does screen heat output significantly increase with pixel density as well?

    high end gpu is only needed to play at 4k res .... 2d display doesn't need much

    I could see these being used in EBCs quite a bit, and similarly with designers/architects trying to impress customers.

    Suffice to say, if you're posting commenting that it's expensive, it's not for you!

    EDIT: And just in case - EBC = Executive Briefing Centre - places where typically tech companies spend millions to impress when hosting potential customers and/or partners.
