I like your point of view! And you already agree with what I wrote about the form factor when you explicitly express your preference for a laptop with some kind of tablet functionality instead that a for a dedicated tablet tablet form like the Surface Book), just like I said here:
However I have at least one reservation on your reply: correct me if I am wrong or if you have better info on this, but most (all?) 360 “fancy” hinges are manufacturer proprietary patents. To go that route, Eve would need to industrially develop it’s own hinge or resort to 3rd party. Do you think this would still be a simple addition? I would be really happy if that is true.
And about price: better and additional internal hardware, larger touchscreen panel, a more complex design and manufacturing process… all of this would add just $200 (max! ) to the price of the V-i7? Equal design and “just” changes on internals between Eve-V models determined larger differences in prices between different versions of the V itself!.. As long as I am not proved wrong by facts, I’ll maintain my skepticism about this aspect.
However, if you are right even on this, and that is proved true: 1) I would be VERY HAPPY ; 2) Eve Team is borderline to MAGIC (this is actually quite possible ); 3) Once available, this product would almost erase the commercial appeal of the V-i7 from a price/value stand point 4) It would still be a $1.600 (1.700 tax+shipping included) laptop: of tremendous value, no doubt on this, and with additional functionality, no doubt either; however, already inside the pro-laptop market prices, and not below them (like the V is with respect to comparable devices).
