Awesome new product line. The shareholders must be overjoyed. They'll sell at least 6-7 of these.

I've had multiple Manfrotto plates crack in the pot metal (on my Hasselblad 203FE, no less). Plus, I don't use the Manfrotto QR system. I use the Arca-Swiss system.Whoa! Multiple fails. I can understand why you switched to Arca-Swiss. That's statistically extraordinarily bad luck.
I mounted my Black Rapid strap screw to a manfrotto quick place adapter
and mounted an RC2 plate to my camera. This allows me to quickly attach/detach the camera from my BR strap and quickly attach it to my manfrotto monopod/tripod.
This is where I got the idea:
Black Rapid - Manfrotto Quick Release Adapter
There's no way I'm hanging my camera/lens upside down on an RC2 plate. They're acceptable on a tripod, but I would never trust them in a stressful situation.Have you broken one brad-man?
Consider the size and weight of the 1DX body too. Does not matter to me, but can get heavy after a few hours of carrying it around.A meaningful comparison between these two cameras should refer to a gripped 5D3.
Has anyone used a Weye Feye wireless remote (www.weye-Feye.com)? Or even better has experience with both Weye Feye and CamRanger?
.Oh? What is the correct definition as it applies to camera design?
Ergonomics -- it does not mean what you think it means.
OK, IT guy here. Sorry for the long post but I hope this advice helps.
Finally, don't use this nice fast photo pc to do everything. If you install a bunch of stuff like QuickBooks, Office, HP Printer software, huge antivirus security packages, etc, you will kill the performance. Just use it for photography. If you don't use it to surf porn, play online games or do your online banking, don't install antivirus or just install the perfectly fine Microsoft Antivirus. Seriously, you'll thank me later.
Speaking personally and professionally, I'll say that ergonomics play a huge role (no pun intended). You get to a point when miniaturizing things that they get too small to effectively be able to interact with them.
My point is, especially in the professional world, the way something feels and the way you are able to interact with it are more important than "lets make it small just because we can".
