I'm a professional illustrator, and I need to buy a new laptop / 2-in-1 tablet combo / stylus. (Not Apple) I currently use my cintiq for all my work, but it would be great to be able to take some of my work away from the desk, especially for sessions with clients. Despite loving all my wacom products, I'm just not that keen on the Wacom Mobile studio. This is less of a cost problem, and more due to the fact that I would prefer something that is still somewhat like a laptop, with a keyboard. I also feel that the Wacom mobile studio seems a bit heavy and clunky by comparison... Anyway, here we go: 1. What is your budget? up to $2500 AUD 2. Would you consider purchasing used/refurbished? No 3. Do you prefer a media/mobile tablet like the iPad, Windows tablet PC, or notebook convertible? Notebook convertible 4. What size Tablet PC would you prefer? 10 to 13-inches Above 13-inches 5.

Do you have an OS preference? For example, do you own an iPhone and a Mac, or are you a Windows fan? Do you own an Android device and use Google services frequently? It must run windows. 10. What software and tasks do you intend to run? (Microsoft Office or other Word Processing Suite/Photoshop/3D Studio Max/Autocad etc) Primary: Photoshop / Painter, Secondary: Adobe Illustrator/Indesign, thirdly Microsoft office/Firefox ect. 11. Do you intend on playing Games? If so please list. No 12. Would you like to stream content through your home theater system? No Screen Specifics 1. Any preference on screen resolution?

Additional requests ~ anything other you wish to take into consideration? I'm quite keen on the idea of a lenovo, however I'm worried about the drawing experience and whether or not it is something that I'll be comfortable using, or if I'll end up just abandoning it in favour of my cintiq.
