    Hey, Everybody!

    I finally got around to making a screen size chart for easy visual comparison. Over the past couple of years, I have hacked out small portions of this chart a dozen times while trying to work out which machines had what to offer, and finally decided to make a proper version for easy future reference. I think I've covered most bases here.

    Update for Feb 2016.

    I juggled some things around and added more screen sizes relevant today.

    It's a little sloppy; but basically, I was using my comparison file to figure out some things, and thought, "I should share this."

    If you display the main file on a Cintiq 21UX, you get an actual size-as representation of what the various screen sizes look like. You can adjust the file size to suit whatever monitor you're using to get the same effect.

    The whole thing is layered, so you can move the screens around for easy comparison.

    Here's the working file (44Mb) :

    The Cintiq Companion is pretty much a cintiq 13HD, isn't it?

    Yes. I just updated the graphic to include that.

    I think this would good to have in that thread that has all current and legacy Win TPCs. That table in that thread has all the screen dimension and res. So with that we can get PPI using the formula:
    Sqr Root of(Y Res^2 + X Res^2)/Diagonal Screen Size

    I just added a couple more screens for comparison.

    The Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga (12.5" in the 16:9 category)

    And the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro. (12.2" at the never-heard-of-it-before 8:5 ratio.) -It is both Wacom and a fairly nice format, very similar in physical size to the old HP Elitebook 27X0P series, but with over four million pixels(!!). The fact that it only runs Android makes it a bit of an outlier on this list, but I wanted to add it anyway.

    8:5 = 16:10.

    It's a joy to use that's for sure. It's a shame that screen is limited to Android. It's hard to use it much beyond a toy for now thanks to the OS and limited power, but I'm hoping to include it more in my workflow soon with some tweaking. Sketching on it is a digital artist dream though!
