Despite all the hell I've gone through to get my XP-Pen 15.6 up and running, I have to say it really is the Goldilox of sizes. I found at 22" I only drew at the center and even with the trouble I had to get a working one I do like it way better than the 13" Cintiq Hybrid. It honestly depends on what you need as a tool. The S3 has literally saved my buns on more than one occasion and the EMR is so good I end up going back to it despite the size compared to the AES pen on the Yoga 14. My sole income is art commissions due to a fun bag of chronic health issues and the S3 is small enough it can be held laying down easily without hand pain and cramps, but beefy enough to work on 300 dpi comic pages without crashing. There isn't anything at the 300-400 price range with as good of a pen (or keyboard) that's as beefy or light. As for the icons, a lot of the art apps I use let you hide the UI and click it back quickly so the amount of space isn't much different than my preferred size of sketch book. It combined with a personal cloud drive means I do almost all my pre-production, sketches and simple finished work on the S3, save it on the network, and seamlessly open it up on the PC without having to plug anything in to anything else or clean dust off an ancient scanner. So it can be a serious tool, *if* it fits your work flow. I've completed about 30-40 commissions on the thing. I just wish they didn't take away my *bleepin* headphone jack. I have too much inner ear damage from infections for bluetooth ear buds -_-.
