    In the right usage case (like an e-reader) I am a huge fan of e-ink screens. I can read on those for hours with little or no eye strain. I simply can't do that on a transmissive display.

    And I guess there might be some fairly niche 'creator' roles where a larger e-ink display would appeal.

    But, even as somone that spent a good part of my working life writing for a living, there was no way I would consider $1800 fo a 24" e-ink screen. And the smaller one wouldn't interest me at all. Maybe, in part, it's due to my "creative process", which included a fair bit of time with the lights low, my eyes shut a voice dictation software doing the grunt work for me. I don't do so much of that now I'm retired, but even if I wasn't, those wouldn't be for me.

    I'm struggling to think of the target market. Don't most publishers work in colour these days?

    I would have thought so. The only thing I could come up with is somebody like an author, typing text all day. These would be easier on the eyes. But that's a tiny niche.

    Pro HP, Dell and Lenovo gear is every bit as pricey as Apple. It's only consumers who think it expensive.
