Mobile Studio Pro 2

Postby WMSask2 » Thu 15. Nov 2018, 19:54

Hello (i'm french),

I am considering the acquisition of a Mobile Studio Pro 16 ".
I come to you to learn about the arrival or not of new models in the range Mobile Studio.
Maybe 18 or 19 inches ? Maybe thunderbolt compatible ?

Thanking you in advance,
Best regards,

WMSask2

I have no information on future products.
We will most likely continue using only USB-C as this is becoming the new industry standard. Even Apple is using only USB-C in their most recent devices (Macbook Pro for example).
The 16" model is already large enough in my opinion. Anything bigger than that would make the device less mobile.

Hello,

I wanted to contact you in private, but i didn't find the link.

Maybe a little mistake occurs...

The thunderbolt technology use the USB C connector.

"What is Thunderbolt™ 3 Technology?
See what makes Thunderbolt™ 3 technology the most advanced USB-C available, with lightning speed in one thin, reversible compact port."
Video in English on the site of the creator of the technology https://www.intel.fr/content/www/fr/fr/ ... video.html

About Apple, they use thunderbolt in all their devices https://www.apple.com/macbook-pro/
It's why i asked the question about the integration of Thunderbolt in Wacom Mobile Studio.

Best regards,
WMSask2

Mac Thunderbolt implementation is also shifting to USB-C. The Macbook Pro you shared only has USB-C ports and they all support Thunderbolt.

Perhaps this makes things more clear: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/usb-type-c-thunderbolt-3-one-cable-to-connect-them-all/

Well, there are three misconceptions in those statements.
1. type-c MAY become a standard. But not yet, and not even close. One may find a usb stick with type-c port if try hard, but that's it.
2. Standard for what? As a connection port, it may be is. But very doubtful it's true for everything
3. "Even apple" is a terrible example of weird experiments. How many mac users carry garbage usb hubs now?

Having at least 1 type-A is quite necessary. IMHO

I understand and respect your opinion. As a consumer, I don't like when the choice is made for me - we all like to have options - but putting things in perspective, maybe what I want is not always what is best for me. I try to keep this in mind when I consider a new purchase.

My personal use cases regarding the points you mentioned:

1. Not that hard to find. You can find external stick and drives already using USB-C only. There is plenty of choice on Amazon for example. maybe not in physical stores but that is not surprising. Cloud based storage is making physical storage obsolete anyway. It still has some useful situations but I personally cannot remember the last time I used one.

2. Every flagship Android smartphone for the last 2 years is using USB-C only. Almost every laptop and desktop computer has some kind of USB-C implementation. Most modern up-to-date implementations include Thunderbolt and PowerDelivery. Basically, one port for all functions.
If I buy a new peripheral today, I take this into account and look for something that will serve me in the long run.

3. I think Apple is actually by far the best example. A brand that was long known use their own proprietary port connections aside from the industry standards - Lightningbolt, Thunderbolt, Magsafe for power on their laptops - is now switching to USB-C power supply, USB-C video output, in their flagship computers. I wonder how long it will take for them to also introduce USB-C in the iPhone range. If such an outlier brand is using the same standard as other brands, this unifies the industry. I do not own any Apple products or ever owned. I am far from being an Apple fan. I do work with these devices tough and I see the benefits.

Again, this is just my personal opinion. I do not intend to change your mind.
Just a different perspective on this matter. This is not Wacom's position by any means.
