This is actually my first post on this forum, since I signed less than 2 weeks ago. I turned to this forum to find out as much information about the tx2000 series before I investing in another computer. Something I didn't do before buying my previous 17" dell laptop,which I felt I was missing during the purchase of that computer. I would like to note that I was a previous owner of a wacom cintiq 21ux, which I owned a little over a year. As a graphic designer,I thought the investment of the cintiq was going to change my life as a designer, but it didn't. I found it more of a cool novelty than a useful tool in my work flow. Th e main problem was that I had to change my work flow to use the cintiq (switch over from laptop, turn on cintiq, pull from stand and place on my lap) it was just a process. I found I had to force myself to use it on most occasions because it was such a process. After purchasing the tx2120 (bought from circuit city) and loading up my cs3 programs I went right back into my standard work flow. Some benefits from the tablet is I can quickly swap over to tablet mode, pop out the pen (love the spring coil action) and start editing. I think the best experience I have had so far is when I switched back to laptop mode, realized I needed to delete some more stuff on an image and just lifted my fingers from the keypad and touch the screen with my finger (wow!) All in all, with the power of wacom technology, the only thing I wish the tablet had is the intuos3 buttons on the left and right, but not sure if its worth it for the additional width, the workaround is keep the virtual keyboard around. I am so happy with my purchase that even though I bought this system last friday and found out there was a better deal 1 week later, just having the tx2000 tablet for that one week changed my work flow drastically, nuf said! For all intensive purposes, I am a graphic designer, using photoshop and dreamweaver.
