Looking forward to hands on reviews of this. A truly portable, full Cintiq all-in-one unit would be pretty handy… VERY pricey though.

I’ll be reviewing one when they send a unit next week. I’ll be very critical! Hope it’s as good as they say it is.

Do they reEEeeally need an i7 processor in it? Is Windows 8 really THAT resource intensive? Seems overpriced by a factor of two, imho…
