well wacom releases the cintiq 12ux soon.. personally I'd of liked it if it were 4:3 ratio... why wide screen.. i wouldn't' bother watchin or playing games on it.
its probally widescreen because palettes take up space on the side so they give you more room to work.
This is great
But, if this one cost aprox 1000 (I dont know the price, Only I suppose)
Is not better a tablet pc?
Here's my take on it:
- 1024 pressure levels
- Angle detection
- Tool ID
- All the other nifty Cintiq/Intuos3 features I can't remember right now
- Not portable since it not only needs a datacable running to your pc, but also one to a powersupply
- 12" WXGA
- 256-512 pressure levels depending on model
- no angle detection
- Portable, it's like having a clipboard that runs Photoshop and PainterIX, totally awesome
- Fully functional Laptop
- screen sizes vary between 12-14" (12" is the most common one)
- resolution varies between XGA, WXGA and SXGA+ depending on the model

$1700 Wow thats too much for me (Here the mony is pesos and 4 pesos = 1 dolar) , to spend in only a wacom
Personaly i really prefer in that case spend those 1700 on a tablet pc
Thanks for reply
Hey guys just to show what 256 lvls of pressure can do in photoshop on my fujitsu lifebook T4215.
i also have the pressure slider at 75% hardness so i press a lil harder for more pressure. nothings wrong with it.
BTW. i heard that the newer fujitsus' will have 512 lvls.
Frankly i think 256 and 512 is enough.
1700 is still beter then 3000. This might be better for someone who already has a good computer opposed to someone who is looking to buy a new computer with this.
If i had the money i'd buy this. I've always wanted a cintiq. perhaps it will become more economical soon.
My work: [link]
with my wireless net on about 1 and a half hours - 2 with it off.. a good 3 - 3 and a half. i usually draw with it plugged in. cept when on the sofa watching tv
it's all good. I'm thinking of buying a modular bay battery for double the time.
i went back to my pc and tried out my 9x12 wacom the other day. first time in 5 months. Wowzah. the tablet pc (or cintiq for the matter) is like 2/3rds faster. i can get stuff done in 3 hours opposed to an entire night on the 9x12 pad.
i configured the second pen switch to ''pop-up'' when i click it a pop up window shows shortcuts that i use frequently, like: flip,select all layers, link layers, undo and more.
hm.. this cintiq looks tight.. Anyone know if it has faster response time than its big brother ?
Not sure if I would like to sacrifice 9 inches for faster response time anyways.. but it would be cool to know.. soon.
