Second digitizer for pen/stylus is built only in Pro version of Surface.

There was an Apple granted patent published just this morning Doug that covers just that very point of yours. It's far more recent and relevant. See Patently Apple's report below and under "Other Notable Granted Patents" you'll see one regarding a"multi-touch related patent." Check out the link to the patent office.

I may be wrong but I believe Apple patented a similar technology 12 years ago on the newton. I remember seeing a video where an Apple engineer talked about the complex algorithms that allowed your hand to rest on the surface while writing. Hmmmm.
