I've ordered a remarkable 2 as I have coveted one since they first came out, and they were doing an introductory offer for the new model. But that seems to have finished now and they are back up to £450.
It hasn't arrived yet, and while I don't regret purchasing it (yet), for similar reasons of liking things that do one thing well, I do think that perhaps an ipad air is a more sensible choice.
Particularly since that now I'm working from home I don't actually have anywhere to go where I might need to take notes.
The only people I've seen with remarkables in the wild are academics.
