    vote for Samsung 7 Slate. A lot of artist use it, a lot of problems already solved.
    - asus a bit outdated
    - Ativ pro has some problems with fullHD resolution (too small GUI) and recent Wacom driver, but that might be fixed later

    All that theoretically, right now i'm bothered what to buy for art just like you
