Looks utterly mental! I'd love one, but not sure how comfortable using the wacom tablet in that (fixed) position would be. Might be easier to just put a wireless Wacom 4 in the laptop bag instead. The built-in colour calibration is very clever, though I'd imagine that with LED backlighting it shouldn't need to be done very often. Using an external EyeOne every 6 months would surely be adequate.

The left-hand right-hand bias on the drawing tablet is curious as left-handed people are supposed to have a more artistic bias. (I say this as a righty.) Had to put it on one side I suppose.

I would love to take this bad boy to University, all the MacBookAirs would get sucked in a crushed by its gravitational pull.

To be honest, surely i buy a normal laptop with decent specs for £1k then spend £400 on a Wacom Intuos 4 and £100 on a 21" screen and I've gotten a much much much better deal?

@Brian Carter:

Indeed, as a south-paw creative myself it's slightly disappointing.


Try carrying a laptop, Intuos tablet and 21in screen around the office - or to clients - with you ;)
