    Cintiq 12WX

    So got an email today on a new product offering from Wacom:
    Cintiq 12WX

    Those who know anything about the Cintiq models know that offer on screen display and unreal responsiveness...making them the best tablets out there period...but at a normal $2600 price tag range...ouch...

    However this new model (though smaller) actually offers a decent price tag ($999). Anyway my question is if you think this new model will be worth while and something you would consider buying yourself?

    Hell to the mother****ing Yes my friend... I've had the privilege of using the full 21UX with its dynamic swiveling base and semi-portable capability, which basically means you can detach the whole thing but it weighs a ton -_- the new lighter model looks like a sexy upgrade. Using a cintiq is a religious experience in comparison to a top of the line tablet. Even a smaller surface area on a cintiq would feel better and more natural. Although you could argue that a tablet PC might be comparable its a far cry from the sensitivity and control you get from a cintiq. Thanks for the heads up, I'm saving my pennies.

    This can increase productivity and refine accuracy for just about anyone, but if you are someone who can't draw or paint worth a damn (like me), the end results will not justify the price tag, even at $999. I don't think I would pay that much money to be able to trace or cut out images faster, which is pretty much all I would be able to get out of it. I am actually better with a mouse and pointer than with a pen or brush.

    Now, if I could draw.....then this would be priceless.
