Putting aside the lame Windows RT OS for a moment, the ThinkPad seems pretty good other than the comparatively low resolution screen. Put the Samsung 2560x1600 in the ThinkPad and you'd have something a lot more compelling, hardware-wise.

Its full windows, not WinRT. Its a Baytrail processor.

Why do people fall for these gimmicks? This isn't that bad.. But the SP2….
If you're going to spend $1,800.00 bucks on a scrap metal Surface Pro 2, why not buy a fully functional true laptop like a Macbook or Lenovo or something? I mean heck, for nearly half the price, you can get a gaming laptop from ibuypower.com that would blow that junk out of the water . . .

Form factor and the pen input. A laptop is a far better value than most tablets, no doubt, but drawing, sketching, doodling, etc., are far more enjoyable on a tablet vs. a laptop.

No doubt about that. But $900.00 to $1,800.00 for this thing is like paying 10 dollars for two regular hot dogs, instead of 4 dollars for one footlong. As in, why spend more on the impractical when you can spend less on the practical.

Don't buy gaming laptops, they are terrible value
Especially that one you link, the GT 840M would only capable of playing at low-mid settings 1080p ~30 fps. You get the Lenovo Y50 with GTX 870M for less, or maybe a MSI, ASUS, or GIGABYTE laptop
You'd be better of getting a $1000 ultrabook with much better portability and battery life than that "gaming" laptop
And build a $800 desktop with a R9 270X or GTX 760, which would do high-max settings 1080p and ~60 fps

It's a good question. Personally, I would not spend a lot of money on a tablet. A $350 tablet such as the Galaxy Note 8 gives you a nice pen drawing experience. Or refurbed Galaxy Note 10.1 2014s were on sale recently for $340. Or for non-pen, the $350 Samsung TabPro 8.4 is a really nice little tablet.
Mostly, I think tablets are hideously overpriced and dysfunctional.

the Surface Pro 2 starts at the same price level of most ultrabooks ; does that mean that ultrabooks worthless too ?

I highly doubt this is intended to compete with Surface Pro 2

this is the best of the Intel Atom CPU tablets. but it will not beat the performance of the microsoft surface Pro 2 because the "Surface Pro 2 has a more powerful CPU the intel
