Like the title says I bit the bullet and threw some money at my computer screen to buy this thing. Since I used this site to help make the decision I think it's only fair I give back a little. A little background on me so you know where I'm coming from. I'm an industrial designer who's been using mostly an ipad for early concept work and sometimes client sketches for a few years now. I've also used an older cintiq, a couple of intuos's and an xp-pen knock-off. I got the coneptd as the ipads getting a little old and I'm finding myself wanting something a little more capable; at the same time my laptop died and I really needed something juicy to replace it that runs VR and solidworks passably well. General Performance, Looks, etc... I feel like other reviews have already covered the speed, looks, feel and all of that other stuff; plus people really want to hear about the drawing experience so I'll just give a few quick thoughts here. First off it is definitely fast and plenty capable for VR/3d modeling that I need it for. I tried fallout 4 VR and it was playable with some reprojection. the optimization on that game is terrible so that tells me it's a pretty capable PC. I also have worked with a few of my larger solidworks files (145 parts at the largest) and it was passable there. if that's all I wanted it for and I had the cash I'm sure the workstation card would be better but it was perfectly fine. The screen is nice. I'm not going to go to in depth here but to say the colors are vibrant and it has a nice almost paper like look to it. the only downside is that the matte texture seems to hold/show finger point oils better than average. As far as general look and design. It's a nice looking computer overall, it's not groundbreaking design or anything but it's not ugly. That being said for a $3000 computer I would of expected the fit and finish to be a little better. it feels a little plasticky in places and I'm not convinced that the ezel hinge would survive much abuse. I think if I drop it I'll have a detachable keyboard. That being said the hing works fine, it holds everything in place and I really like the actual function of it and the positions it gives you; I just wish it felt a little sturdier. Size wise the entire computer is smaller than I expected, think thin gaming laptop rather than full sized asus rogue kind of thing. I am a bigger guy but I actually like drawing with it on my lap from the couch, which is something I was worried I'd be giving up leaving the Ipad. Overall in this category there isn't anything wrong with it but it doesn't really justify it's price on these aspects alone. Hardware is very solid and fast but Its no macbook pro as far as build quality or aesthetics. Thats about what I expected going in but my point here is that if the integrated pen isn't a big selling point to you or you don't know what EMR is there are better deals out there. Drawing Experience This is the bit I think everyone wants to know about. I'm going to do a lot of comparing to the apple pencil here since that's what I've used the most recently and I still have it here to test. Overall I definitely like the drawing experience more on this then I have on the other devices I've used except maybe the Cintiq (when the drivers worked). That being said it's not without it's faults. First off screen feel. this was something on the Ipad that I never really got used. it felt like drawing on ice, this is not like that. The texture is just a little less gritty than drawing on printer paper and I feel like my strokes are a lot more accurate without smoothing than they were on the glossy Ipad. The size is a nice upgrade from the Ipad, it's not as big as the xp-pen or the Cintiq I've used but those were really both overkill for me in most situations anyway. I haven't noticed any serious lag or jitter and I would say it feels a little more direct than the apple pencil did overall. There is some parallax but it's not bad and you can calibrate out. I have had the calibration go wonky on me once for no reason and had to reset and re run calibration to fix it. For software I've been using mostly clip studios pro. I have photoshop and a trial of Corel painter but of the three Clip studios has had the best pen feel. both photoshop and painter seem to take a lot of pressure to activate the pen and I haven't been able to fix it in settings. In clip studios I would say that activation pressure and sensitivity are on par with the apple pencil. The other side of that is that the computer itself doesn't really have any adjustment that I can find for pressure. It does not use the wacom feel drivers so that's a bit of a disappointment. In general I think the pen drivers are lacking and I hope they patch something in to improve them eventually. The final thing that I can think of is that the pen itself is definitely thin and light. I would say if I were to compare it to traditional media it's similar to a piece of vine charcoal. a little thinner than a pencil. I think this a bit of personal preference I always liked thin drawing implements. If you like drawing with a full size pen you are very much out of luck here though at least for stock solutions. Overall I'm very happy with it and it's a great upgrade over the ipad for me. The drawing feels more natural and it's obviously a much more capable machine. However, I'm a pretty specific consumer and I don't think it's a slam dunk for everyone. I'm very mobile and almost never work at a desk so I kind of need to be able to bring my whole "studio" with me or I'm very unhappy. this is the first device where I really feel like I can do that %100 and the trade offs are worth it for me. The only real disappointments to me were the lack of feel driver support and maybe the durability of the hinge but other than that it works like it's supposed to. Overall there were no big shocking disappointments but it also wasn't way better than I expected either. I don't often review things but I've tried to be as honest as possible with the pros and cons. If you have questions I'll try to answer them but I'm not online all that often.
