One version will run on Windows 8 and it will come with a 256GB SSD (solid state harddrive) with a priace money of $2000. The second one will come with a 512GB SSD and Windows 8 Pro that will cost $2500.
Both the versions will have some common features. These devices will have 13.3-inch display that will support the resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Other features include are an Intel Core i7 processor, Intel HD Graphics 4000, 8GB of RAM, two USB 3.0 ports, Wi-Fi, dual cam- an 8-megapixel camera in rear and a 2-megapixel camera in front side.

Wacom is going in a different way with the Cintiq Companion Hybrid.
