Thanks for the detailed response! I tried out a few laptops in store. Pens felt OK.. but it was hard to tell since I didn't have Photoshop. I got the impression I could manage, though. Of course if I'm wrong it's going to be terribly obnoxious. Main reason for budget is that this laptop is kind of a luxury. I have a solid workstation with dual monitor/cintiq-alternative setup. Laptop is just for working on the couch and occasionally out in the world. So it's mostly for block-ins, thumbnail sketches, and a bit of polish. Would also be great if I can sculpt on it and do a bit of 3D basics. All of this works with my x230t, and I'm reluctant to give up the flexibility. Lately, I'm even debating just getting another x230t. They're like $150 on eBay and I can drop all my upgrades from my current system right in there haha. As you can see by my responses, I'm pretty conflicted by the options lol. Mostly just trying to get first hand experience recommendations so I can sort it all out. Did you ever figure out a replacement for your Fujitsu?
