A few questions:

1. Where is this available for less than £1600? And is this still not yet available to buy from Wacom's own online store, and if so, why not? Have you communicated in any way with Wacom regarding this device?
It's non-availability at their online store worries me a little, and I also wonder about after-sales 'service' as I have read of people being disappointed with some aspects of this tablet.
It's a shame that Amazon UK don't stock it as they are great at replacing/refunding products due to usability issues. The US Amazon store does so but of course that doesn't help us much.
I've seen this for sale at around £1800, and that £200 difference is important when comparing it's stateside price of $1999.

2. You seem to be aware of if not an imminent update, then at least an update which is on the horizon? Again I wonder where this comes from? Wacom? As I said, they don't seem in any rush to be selling it themselves in the UK, so ...
I have been thinking about the 21" Cintiq, but it goes without saying that ANY genuine news of it being updated would put me on hold; it's just whether that update is four/six months away or a year-plus. Based on your source for this information, what do you reckon is the more likely?

3. Lastly, did you use this with a Mac? Lion? Again, I've read of 'issues' with drivers on Macs.

@Carl Adudephane:
1. To give but one example, Okobe.co.uk have it in stock for £1565.
I did question Wacom about the lack of availability from its online store, and was told it would likely be replenished at a future date.

2. Keep your eyes peeled for Wacom news on our site towards the end of the month, though the idea of a 24in Cintiq is more of an educated guess than confirmed news ;). You may also want to hang on a while for the review of the Hanvon 12in SenTIP.

3. PC only I'm afraid.

Thanks for your comment, hope this helps.

I find funny that your review complaints about the aspect ratio. One thing I hate about the profusion of widescreens is that it's an awful format for drawing anything else than landscapes. Try to draw a portrait in a widescreen and you'll find you are only using a very small percentage of the screen, have to work very zoomed in, etc. Widescreen is great to watch movies, but 4:3 was simply much better for working on it.
