Probably a good time for me to take another week off. Also I have recently acquired a Surface Pro 3. I’ll write up a thorough review at some point but in the meantime, the summary is that I like it but with a few reservations (mostly in that the stylus accuracy could be better and Windows 8.1 still has a lot of rough edges, especially with how Photoshop works in it).
As far as why I went with the Surface Pro 3 instead of the Cintiq Companion 2, this is why. Basically I really wish Wacom made a Cintiq in the same size as the Intuos Pro Large. 13" is too small, 22" is too huge. I’d actually have gone with the Cintiq Companion 2 if it weren’t for it having such a stupidly gigantic bezel and relatively tiny screen, not to mention the fact there’s nowhere I can find in Seattle where I could try one out in person first. But if I can try a Cintiq Companion 2 out I might end up switching to that anyway (since there’s enough moderate annoyances with the Surface that I’m not particularly enamored with it).
