Can get an iPad Pro for this much, and I won't have to be tortured by Windows 10 Home.

Maybe instead get an iPad pro and then spend your night figuring out hiw to get productive apps on it like a Windows machine..

Office Suite, Apples own comparable Productivity apps, Adobe Creative Suite. Actually several folks at our HQ here in NY use iPad Pros as laptop replacements. This is a very old, and weak argument.

Hey, wait a minute. I just got this exact one from you (It hasn't even arrived yet) for 1149.00! What gives. I now feel like I've overpaid for it and that Drop isn't to be trusted.!

Honestly at $1000 there are so many better options today... I would suggest people look for a used (or new on liquidation) Dell Latitude 5175 as it has somewhat comparable specs and can be had for 20% of the price... Also things like the XPS 13 2-in-1 could be a better value (considering modern chips). The fact that this was marketed for content creators and gamers is literally a flat out lie. Core Y chips have very minimal baseclocks and are only really to be used for content consumption, spreadsheets/documents and web browsing. Their GPU's are extremely weak and the entire machine is limited by its very short-lived boost clock. These chips are made for tablets for ultimate portability and literally nothing else. Searching for this device and reading through the comments here does suggest that the company never delivered devices to some people... So you have that to think about too.

7th gen Intel when 10th gen on 10nm arch is almost here is, to put it mildly, disappointing. I'd wait it for new gen CPUs announced a month ago, first of all, much better power per watt, and 2nd, all or most of those CPU vulnerabilities may be fixed in hardware Here's a link to what Dell was up to in 2-1 category: https://www.windowscentral.com/xps-13-7390-computex

This honestly looks like a Surface clone. Sticking with Microsoft instead.

This was a crowdfunded surface competitor but for a significantly lower price.

Just to remind you guys that I still am waiting for a refund for my original order of December 2017. Also, if you are in the market for such a 2 in 1 device, I can recommend the Acer Switch 5, which I use as a substitute for the Eve V that I never received. As far as I know the biggest drawback of that particular device is the inferior stylus and screen. Apart from that I got way better specs for a similar price.

I've read your messages and am sympathetic, but why didn't you just revoke the charge with your credit card company? It's too late now, but within six months it's really easy.

Unfortunately, for that time period I bought into their bullshit story of "why we cant deliver now, but certainly will in the forseeable future". When I realized I was being scammed it was already too late. Which is why I keep commenting on the Eve V on Massdrop since I dont want anyone else to make that same (expensive) mistake.

I went ahead and ordered this one. I'm fully aware of the issues that Eve-Tech has had regarding delivery of prepaid devices in the past, but I'm hoping that having Massdrop (aka Drop) in the middle holding on to my funds until the Eve V is delivered works in my favor. I've wanted a device like this for a very long time - I almost backed them during their Indiegogo campaign, that's how long I've been tracking them (thankfully I didn't!). When they released, the prices were too high for my wallet (again, thankfully I wasn't able to afford it at that time!). But now, I don't think this device can go any lower in price, and spec-wise, it still appears to be a great bargain. This could end up being a story that ends happily, with me and my Eve V walking hand in hand into the sunset; or it could end up with me making a $1099 mistake (purchased without my wife's permission), a non-delivery, the eventual divorce, and a descent into madness. I'll keep you updated.

I received an email from Eve devices informing me that they are basically selling out their remaining stock for $779. That reminded me about how I purchased mine from Drop for $1099 - and how I'm seriously considering purchasing a 2nd one. I'm extremely happy with the Eve V. It's SSD is lightning fast. I power it on and it's ready to go in about 10 seconds. It's capable of handling everything that I've thrown at it. To be honest, though, I'm not a gamer, so I probably haven't stressed the Eve V to it's theoretical maximum. The worst I've thrown at it is streaming video while also having 15 browser tabs open plus a few other apps/programs running, so not too stressful for a device with an i7 core and 16GB of RAM. Now that I've had it for several months, here are the few issues that I have with the Eve: 1) I'd like to have an HDMI port. The Eve V has 2 x USB 3.0 slots and 2 x USB-C slots (and a headphone jack if that's how you roll). When I'm at home I want the ability to plug in a second monitor. I know there are probably some cables out there that are DVI on one end and USB-C on the other (or perhaps USB 3.0), but a full-size HDMI port would add more flexibility. As it is right now, I use Mouse Without Borders (from Microsoft Garage) and sync the Eve with my laptop and desktop that way, so as long as my wifi router pumps out a good signal, I'm good (but when it drops, even for just a second, I have to reconnect, and that's a pain). 2) I'd like at least one more USB 3.0 port, again, just for increased flexibility. I suppose I could get one of those dongles that has a lot of USB ports that I plug into a single USB port on the Eve, but that's just a pain. I have a cheap Bluetooth mouse (I prefer using a mouse over a touchpad on any computer) that has a USB plug-in, so when I'm using my mouse, I only have 1 free USB 3.0 port, and that's the port that I have my external drive plugged into (I have a portable external 750GB SSD that I use to save space on the Eve, my other laptop, and my desktop). 3) I don't use the USB-C ports to their maximum potential. It's my understanding that USB-C's are supposed to be able to handle blazing fast data and traffic and blah blah blah - I have no idea. So far, I've only used to charge the Eve V. If you're not a rapid adapter of newer technology and would prefer to be able to use the cables you already have on hand (i.e. stuff with USB 3.0 connections), then this device will kind of limit you. I probably should buy more USB-C stuff, but I haven't. Oh, well. 4) I've experienced a few issues with transitioning from computer to tablet and then back to computer. The computer to tablet transition isn't a problem - simply select the "Tablet Mode" option, detach the keyboard, and boom - it's a tablet. However, sometimes (not always, but a handful of times), when I reattach the keyboard and select "Computer Mode," the screen gets kind of screwy. It recognizes the keyboard, but doesn't recognize inputs from the touchpad, or if it does, the movements and positioning of the cursor are all messed up. At the same time, the touchscreen is also messed up - as in my finger will be touching the screen trying to select something, and the cursor is elsewhere on the screen. The few times this has happened I've ended up simply restarting the computer (not a problem, it only takes 10 seconds!!!), and the problem disappears. I have no idea why this happens/happened - again, not like I was running massive statistical software or playing a game that maxed out the Eve's capabilities - it just...happened. 5) As I get older, I'm becoming more security conscious and would like to move away from Windows (especially Windows 10) and more towards Linux or something. I don't know enough about IT or computers or anything to make the leap from Windows 10 to Linux/Debian/Mint/whatever, and I'm loathe to try to wipe this Eve V and install something else because I know I would screw it up. That being said, it would be nice if Eve Tech offered this device with an option of having something other than Windows 10 installed. 6) There isn't a page up/down key which is annoying, though this is probably just a personal pet peeve. You have to use CTRL plus arrow keys (or is it SHIFT and arrow keys? - I always forget). Also, ALT codes don't work, in my experience. For example, if you want to insert an arrow, such as → , on a regular keyboard you could simply type press ALT and type 26, and the arrow appears. No amount of researching that I've found has allowed me use ALT codes to insert arrows (and other figures). I literally have a Word document that has arrows and Greek symbols on it that I keep open and cut and paste from. That is a drawback of having the tablet-sized keyboard instead of a full-sized keyboard. 7) I've used the Eve V everyday for several hours per day since I purchased it last summer. I've traveled all over the US and Europe with it, taking it with me on the airplane, trains, roadtrips, etc. I purchased a nice carrying case for it from Amazon that's done a nice job of protecting it. To this day, the screen is still blemish-free (except for a few smudged fingerprints); the microfiber on the keyboard that I was a bit hesitant about at first is still pretty clean (some dust, but nothing gross); I don't use the pen very often, but when I do, it works like charm, though the button on it should be placed elsewhere because it's quite easy to press if you're not paying attention. 8) One thing I may or may not have mentioned - the Eve V comes with the pen included, but it ALSO comes with 3 or 4 different plug adapters which I thought was pretty awesome considering that I love to travel. The charging block has the standard US plug, but there's an adapter for the UK, an adapter for Europe, and a third adapter for some other country. There may be a 4th one but I'm too lazy to walk over to the other room and look right now. When you order the Eve V, it'll ask you if you want to order a "kit" or something like that that includes the travel adapters, cable, etc. Don't get that kit - it's literally just extra adapters, so you'll end up having 2 x UK adapters, 2 x Europe adapters, 2 x Other country, etc. It was kind of misleading, which is irritating, because it was also expensive (though I don't recall how much it was). 9) Overall, I love the Eve V. It's has it's flaws (and to be fair, the company Eve Tech did royally f**k over some of its customers early on), but I absolutely love my Eve V. I think that if you're looking for a Surface Pro competitor tablet, this is what you should get. It's incredible. I'm not a corporate shill, I have no stake in Eve Tech/Eve Devices the company - according to an email I received from Eve, starting on Monday, February 24th at 1700 Eastern Standard Time, they're having a sale for the exact model of Eve V that I have (i7, 16GB RAM, 512 GB SSD) for $779. If you're looking for a Surface Pro or equivalent, I be all over this opportunity like a fat kid at a Golden Corral buffet. In closing - it looks like Eve Tech is going to make a 2nd iteration of the Eve V. I don't know how long it will take for them to make the 2nd generation. They're probably trying to clear out stock now to get some cash and make room for the new stuff. I hope that the company has learned from their past mistakes in their customer service and customer support. While I personally have not been screwed over by them financially, I understand that others have and I hope that moving forward, the company ensures that THAT will not happen again. I can honestly say, however, that the technology that they created, the Eve V, is an outstanding product. I would happily purchase another Eve V, and I highly recommend it to anybody and everybody (that being said, it always helps to purchase through a 3rd party, like I did via Drop, to ensure that you don't get screwed!!!). If anybody has any questions, please ask away. With kindest regards, HoofHearted69_420
