Stoneseeker and his lovely wife found themselves in my little town and so it was with great pleasure that I was able to meet up with them at a local cafe armed, each of us with our respective tablets. This was super-fun, and not just because they were such charming people, (artists are great folks!), but also because I was able to try out a couple of Tablet PCs I'd never had the opportunity to even hold before, let alone play with. So. . , I got to try both the famous Fujitsu t902, (far Right), and the N-Trig powered Sony Duo13 (Middle) as well as trot out my venerable old workhorse, the Toshiba Tecra M4, (Left). This isn't an in-depth review, but I will share some impressions: The Duo13 was a really sweet piece of hardware, light and well-built, but man! I am NOT accustomed to the Win8 OS. I kept triggering pop-in, slide-out menu thingies and I felt like my grand dad. "What? What did I just do? Where did my drawing go? Did I break it?" I'm sure with practice, it would become second nature, but for now I am definitely a species of computer user coming from the Jurassic period with a GUI brain the size of a walnut. I tried out Clip Studio Paint (CSP) which its makers have tuned up to work with full pressure sensitivity under the N-Trig system. And this marks my very first time, not just with a Sony TPC, but also with the N-Trig digitizer system. I was both impressed and disappointed. The edge accuracy, as is well known, is great. The pen does indeed register pressure, and you can draw quite well. I could see myself being able to draw professionally with this machine. However. . . Yuck. In comparison to Wacom, N-Trig, at least on this iteration of Sony's tablet tech, just isn't *quite* there. There's a slight delay between a quick brush stroke and the appearance of a line on the canvas. It's irritating. And in that little delay, direction info seems to get lost, so quick curvy lines have little straight beginnings which aren't supposed to be there. Not cool. -I mean, it wouldn't stop you from getting work done, and if you'd never used Wacom before, you'd probably be thinking, "Hey! This is amazing!" But for those of us who are comfortable with Wacom's penabled systems, it's a step back in terms of responsiveness. I really hope Sony gets that sorted out for the release of their Flip series. If they do. . . Fireworks! It'll be amazing. If not. . . Well, the Flip will not be on my Christmas list. The t902 was awesome, as expected. I didn't experience the little jumping cursor bug Stoneseeker told me about, so for me it was a near perfect experience. The speed is just fantastic. You can scribble out images using really demanding texture brushes with no problem. And the screen, while it IS an inch narrower on the North/South axis than my Tecra, is still pretty darned good in terms of size. I could feel comfortable working on that machine. It's good to know if I'm ever in the market for a new and powerful tablet that 13" is enough to get the job done in comfort. I also tried it in portrait mode, and wow! New screen technology really shows up my old Toshiba. It looks great at different angles and with customized menus, I could see myself being able to get decent work done on those taller-than-they-are-wide comic pages quite happily. Also. . , it was amusing. The t902 is reported as being one of the bigger, heavier machines, and it is. But compared to the 6.2 lb Tecra M4, it felt to me like it was made of cardboard! I guess I've built up some muscles hefting my gear around. Stoneseeker drawing on the Toshiba Tecra M4, (above). He can report on the experience himself when he gets around to checking this thread. So, cheers, guys! It was a beautiful and fun afternoon; thanks so much for gracing my little village with your presence and letting me try out your toys. Happy Thanksgiving!
