    I think you short changed the active digitizer, “Stylus”, by quite a bit. And for many of us, it’s one of the most important features of this device. So maybe you should do a little more research here.

    Not having a keyboard dock is a bummer. Dell makes one for the XPS 10. Puzzling why they don’t have one for the Latitude. The docking station is useless.
