Hi! I am a professional digital illustrator; my home studio setup is Win 7 Pro desktop with a Wacom Cintiq 24HD and another screen. I use my computer to draw in Photoshop, and to create my art in Illustrator and Photoshop. Photoshop is my primary tool for pressure sensitive drawing, though I can also use Sketchbook if I have to. I need a mobile solution for under $1000 CAN. I would prefer a tablet with an optional keyboard if possible. Something that is light, but powerful enough to run my programs. I obviously need something with at least a stylus input and pressure sensitivity. If you have used a Cintiq before, you'll know how it's very responsive - I am looking for something that is similar. I cannot draw on a tablet that has lag (I tried on my current, non pressure sensitive Asus tablet, couldn't do it). Thanks! ***** Below is the questions and answers the site asked to fill: 1.
