You're right, I didn't even think about that. I have a ton of AI licenses, considering I bought each and every CMC device. Not to mention my Yamaha keyboards. I just assumed it was basically a useless demo.
Now the real problem is that the vendor has informed me that they're out of 64gb V8P's and I had to cancel the order. I immediately ordered directly from Dell, but someone told me they're they're out of stock too (I hope it's not true, but I fear it is...) I guess after the Surface fiasco last year tech companies don't want to take huge risks with inventory and order limited quantities. Apparently, this little sucker is selling like hotcakes. I'm not surprised, as this is the tablet I've been waiting for since Microsoft started selling tablets some 15 years ago...
