Next month I am consiering in inverting in some digital art equipment. I dont have much experiance with any of it. All I use now is a bamboo and an aging laptop running ubuntu.
I've a fair amount of funds to invest and am considering a cintiq 24hd or a cintiq 24hd touch. I am not to sold on the touch because I doubt I'd use the function much and its a lot more expensive. Are there any viable alternatives with screens as large as these?
I'll also need to buy a computer to attach it to. I'd like to get a laptop since I need one anyway. The ones I've been looking at are the Envy 5 touchsmart or asus g750. But I am concerned they wont be powerful enough. Dose anyone have any advice on using a laptop with a cintiq? I dont want to spend a lot only to find out it runs laggy.
I've also considered killing two birds with one stone and getting a cinitq companion. But I'm concerned the working space will be to small for me as I'm used to working A3 and upwards.
I've spent days researching and haven't really found much advice on my situation. I guess because the cintiqs are usually used in a work environment where a desktop pc is usually present.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
