I was kind of excited when I first heard about the HP Envy X2 13t and 15t ultrabooks. A mobile Cintiq alternative that comes in 15" sounds great, right?
But none of the tech blogs (nor HP's website) had any info on what digitizer technology was in the tablet. Thanks to(who does terrific and thoughtful reviews that keep the use cases of digital artists in mind), we now know that it uses the Synaptics digitizer, and from this demo (around the 12-minute mark), it looks like it's not quite ready for digital illustration.
Ah, well. Maybe after some driver and firmware updates!
