    Looking at the specs, it seems that the 22 is the better choice now. it's lighter, brighter, and you don't have to pay for shipping. I do like the stand on the 24, but if it comes down to it, it's the screen that makes the difference.

    @ Ikken: You know that's the first thing i tried when i updated Painter. How hard could it have been to just add that?

    @ Philofmars: So why didn't they just wait and release it with those improvements? Seems like the Tech industry is punishing early Pro adopters.

    So far it seems the only company actually doing anything with Pros in mind is Adobe. They are the only ones who seem to be putting in any effort at all (surprisingly).

    Who knows, like the rest of you, I am baffled. I am glad they have touch now, I love it on my intuos, if only it was affordable... So I wait. and I wait. Someday.

    Nobody should buy this. Touch will come to all the models, it needs to for them to stay competitive next year. This is a cash grab which is why the resolution did not increase. They will test the touch on all the early adopters and refresh the line again in a year.

    I believe there's going to be a lot of touch-based flopware by the time win8 sales reach decent numbers, but I really doubt any of that could be considered wacom's competition.

    ViewSonic will be releasing a few digitizer displays within the next few months, so that will create SOME competition.

    Other than that, Wacom's pricing is based on a niche product. I believe that @ $2,000 is the "slightly-pushing-it" price range when it comes to stuff like this.

    What surprises me most is that Wacom hasn't been improving the technology that much with their products. The cost often times doesn't reflect the actual value. So, the touch looks great (especially with mudbox), I just don't know if it's $3,700 great at a 1920x1200 resolution. My computer monitor surpassed that 2 years ago...

    the cost of the 24 HD touch seems way to high. even if looked at as a luxury item its pricing doesnt even seem right. how are they figure getting $1200+ more just for touch? is that based on the rich american study.

    It's going to take low sales to tell them it's too high. their britches are too big.

    They have completely lost their mind. Sometimes I wonder: What The F#ck are they thinking....I can't believe it.
    Seriously, my mouth fell open with nerve they had posting it on FB like, "Yeah, come and get it!" Hell's no.
    I think its like a lot of others have stated. They basically have no competition in their niche...

    Because with as much touch screen stuff out their it can't be technology/hardware driving the cost.. at least its hard to imagine.
