It was alright, I guess.
The same type of lag you would expect from any Windows machine. That was my ultimate critique: "This could be cool if there was a different software foundation."
As far as writing with the pen goes, it was pretty responsive to where the pen was and caught up to my hand when I did rapid, expressive wrist-flicks. It was seemingly improvising in terms of pressure sensing. Maybe I was using the pen/dial combo wrong though.
At an undisclosed tech R&D lab after a tour. They had gotten their hands on one for software they were developing for another undisclosed firm.
I felt super powerful going from keyboard/screen mode to digital draft table mode. No software besides Microsoft's native note-taking/paint software could really use the extra dial and pen hardware. Ended up just being a big tablet in comparison to the iMacs I've used in the past. The pen was kinda goofy and unresponsive at times.
The lab I was at is making some interesting things for touch in general. Seemingly a lot of cool stuff to come.
It was cool, felt kinda cheap. Didn't work for anything but MS Paint at the moment.
I went to a friends house for a blackjack tourney, the all-in-one computer was a competitor.
Joshie, this is click-bait! Give us the details!!! :)
Did you use the dial? Did you find it helpful, or just another cheap trick?
When you say "played with," do you mean you tested it to see how it would perform in a motion graphics context, or that you and your friends repeatedly heaved it as far as you could across the store in a competition of ultimate strength?
I'll bite. How's the lag?
