    As I mentioned in the Tablets with Stylus' thread this looks a recycled design from 2005 (Acer Travelmate c200) but what I guess makes this device standout is the specs.

    $5000 is kind of ridiculous though...

    Horses for courses, but i’ve paid 5k after taxes and shipping for almost every new Cintiq I’ve bought in the past, and that’s just the display and digitizer. This is a luggable-but-pro-sized Cintiq, with the workstation included (one powerful enough to run a VR headset too!). It’s a lot of money in absolute terms but in relative terms, relative to comparable (and not portable) pro gear it’s a bargain, or at least competitive.

    Or to put it another way: I couldn’t get a bigger-than-16-inch portable Wacom machine with a 4K screen anywhere for /any/ price.

    Is that $5000 USD?! That's bonkers! :confused:

    Looking at the quoted prices in the NeoWin article:
    "The ConceptD 9 will be available in North America in June starting at $4,999, EMEA in August starting at €4,999, and China in August starting at ¥49,999."

    I think the ConceptD9 will come in somewhere around ~$6800 CAD before tax, and probably ~$7500 CAD after tax.

    But that's only for the base config:
    "For graphics, you can get it with up to an Nvidia GeForce 2080 GPU, as Nvidia doesn't have mobile Quadro RTX GPUs yet."

    So if you want that sweet RTX2080 horsepower, you could be looking at $1000 more, or probably close to $9000 CAD when all is said and done.

    I completely agree with you that this tech is one-of-a-kind and probably worth it to a serious professional...but Sweet Jeeves! That's a hefty price to swallow! :vbeek:

    I think the 2080rtx is standard for that laptop.
    The base model though has an 8 gen i7 instead of the i9.
