Ok, so I was talking with
about Cintiqs and stuff. And he came across these. It's funny that we've never saw this before. If you know about this already, never mind.
They're not Cintiqs, but they're basically lower-level, and lower-priced Wacom display tablets. The smallest one which is a 15.6 inch one, starts at like $1250 on Wacom's site. The second size is a 17 inch 4:3 one starting at $1600, and the biggest one, which is a widescreen HD 21.5 inch one starts at $1900.
A lot of people ask me about Cintiqs and the prices, but I was never aware that Wacom had these available. The only downside is that these only have 512 levels of pressure sensitivity, but I figure if you're thinking of/using an iPad, you'll appreciate at least that and that that 512 shouldn't matter much.
Even that smallest model KILLS the base Cintiq 12WX's specs imho, for only an additional $250. And these are on eBay as well, meaning you can most likely get them cheaper. I guess the fact that Cintiqs and Intuos' get so much more attention than these that not many folks know about them, so I thought I'd share for all you folks wanting to get a Cintiq-like setup. It's all still Wacom, so you can still expect quality. Here's the link to Wacom's site for the other comparisons/details.
