    Cintiq 24 vs 21

    Okay, so my old intuos 3 large is finally starting to show it's age, and after 7 or 8 years of use I'm considering going up to the big boys. Now I know the specs between the 2, technically speaking. And after a week or two of research I'm still trying to decide between the 2 cintiq.
    I'm going to be looking into a local retailer (Anyone know a good one near Chilliwack, BC? I imagine there should be at least 1 or 2 in Vancouver) so I can actually test them out for myself but I'd like any input you kind people would care to throw my way.
    The price difference can be quite large and I'm wondering if the extra resolution will make a huge difference. Along with the feel of the screen itself (which I hear mostly comes down to opinion, and I'll know more about when I actually test them).

    I'm not super heavy on keyboard shortcuts, though I do like them and I hear the 24 has pretty much no room for a keyboard. I like the idea of being able to swivel the screen too, but with software turning in photoshop and I believe built in...doesn't seem like a huge issue.

    Also the screen itself, I know there are 3rd party protectors, but looking at those and the application of putting them on...not something I'd consider. I've heard people have used these for years 8 hours a day with nary a problem so I have little to worry about I would hope.

    In any case, let me know what your opinion on the matter is, thanks.
