Sure no prob. I'll let you know how it handles with those sizes when I get home.
Well on Sai Paint when I used the LE1600 I did get that bit of lag, but it wasn't too serious for me.
I am currently working on one image at 1200x1600 300dpi, seem to have no real issues. There is that "lag" I guess but it seems to hit my strokes accurately so I don't have to undo a lot. Right now this LE1700 is at 2gb ddr2 and I plan to go to 4gb.
I do often go to the Tablet properties and adjust the firmness since I seem to have different responses depending on what program I use.
On the LE1600 I frequently encountered that Stray Dab issue with the Artist's oils. I haven't seen it as of yet on the LE1700.
I try not to work too much over the monitor's native resolution but I manage pretty well with this thing. Just take what I need to finish onto my regular PC and I'm good.
I have just bought a second hand Lenovo X61T, great condition.
I just love the SXGA+ screen, 3 hours of battery life, dual core 1.6ghz, 4gb ram and Windows 7 64bit.
Just one thing is annoying me: I have to recalibrate the pen to the screen every five minutes or so. I use Sketchbook Pro and I just hate doing it over and over again, and even if I do calibarte, it's not always accurate.
Please, can someone help me figure it out?
I have installed Photoshop CS3 and I am not having any pen issues at all with the MC LE1600. This is good yet bad. This means this is a PS CS 5 issue. I really like PS CS 5 but the weird pressure problem makes it really had to illustrate with.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:17)
I have question regarding pressure sensitivity using SketchBook.
I currently have a LE1700 on Vista Business 32bit, 2GB Memory, Dual Core CPU.
Seems that that my brush/pencil strokes go from soft to hard very fast with not much inbetween gradation.
I installed the Wacom Bamboo Drivers after I tried the regular Tablet PC drivers. Doesn't seem to make much of a difference.
It could be that my settings are not right on SketchBook?
I jacked up the Stylus sensitivity to full but not much difference.
I think there is a pressure sensitivity function within Sketchbook Pro. Remember we already discussed that the gradation from dark to light will be a lot faster due to only having 256 levels of pressure sensitivity. I have a light touch with how I draw. You can also adjust the pencil with a Do It Yourself Brush based on that variant.
I also recall Sketchbook pro uses the writing recognition more than the tablet drivers?
Side note though, the toshiba portege m700 is spectacular! It doesn't lag on anything so far really.
Anybody have any hands-on experience on the lenovo thinkpad X201?
And, incidently, where to get one in the Uk?

You can check this artist review.
I got the tablet PC, can I install regular Windows XP on it? I don't have the Tablet PC Edition and I can't buy from the network... :-(
Just go with a 32 bit copy of Win7.
I tried Windows 7 - it makes me feel like my computer is not showing it's full performance... It is quite strong I'd say.

Thank you Castor and other users all advices and comments about LE1700. I bought my own LE and here is my blog address with my impressions: http://www.estudiomanga.com.br/blog/en/
Is the pen corded?
LE models have a "hole" through the eraser side so it can be tethered. It doesn't need a cord to operate. This is optional since my model the wifi antenna is missing (doesn't affect performance) and is not tethered, which is where the spot to tether it used to be. There is a station for your pen to sit inside, which you can press in to lock, and press again to pop out.

Someone had a list of pens it could use earlier in the thread I believe?
But it's not a corded device. It's just a string tether. Mine doesn't have the tether anymore because the attached tether was lost when the wifi antenna broke (I got a used device).
Hey Guys/Gals -
Do any of you recommend a Screen Protector for the LE1700?
I found one at Amazon.com but I've never heard of Lexerd.
Would be cool if Wacom's Tablet PC pens worked, they look the best.
Same since what I want one is with an eraser and duo switch. Though this pen is pretty decent. I just need a couple of shortcuts out of habit. I tend to use the backswitch on my intuos for brush sizing and the front for color sampling, as well as the eraser end.
How is the accuracy of the pen on this thing? I bought a hp tablet pc a long time ago and the cursor kept moving up to a centimeter away from where the pen actually touched at different parts of the screen.
Tried lots of calibration options etc for about a month, but could never get it to work propperly. Contacted hp and they basically told me "tough luck". Dismantled the screen to see if i could insulate against magnetic disturbance, but still no luck.
Ended up stuffing it in a cubboard and went back to pencil and paper.
So, is this thing accurate? Or does the cursor move away from the pen here aswell?
If its not to much trouble. Place a ruler across the screen and draw along it and see if the line is straight or has bumps on it.
Thanks a lot
I have had it for about 2 weeks now, and I love the thing already. The cursor is entirely accurate, having the wacom tablet pc driver installed. It feels to me no different really from my bamboo. An example of something I've been doing on it would be this. http://i357.photobucket.com/albums/o...painting-1.png It's not done, but almost all of the detailing was done so far on my new tablet pc.
The toshiba is a more powerful machine than the 1600s atleast, I don't know about the 1700. I know that I got my m700 on ebay for $365, and it has dual core, 4GB of ram, and 2.0GHz processing. (core2 duo processor) A dual core le1700 is easily $700+. I had originally wanted one of those myself, but I decided to get this instead. Btw, that is photoshop cs4 it's running in that screenshot, and so far it has ran perfectly.
I hope that was helpful!
Art-of-tennis: Thanks, it was indeed helpfull.
I thought every tablet pc had the same issue.
Couppled with the fact that the battery life of a piece of paper kicks ass, i never bought another.
I kinda like how flat the le's are though...
Arshes Nei or other le owners: Any thoughts on post 122?
