Would really like to have one of these! I got the Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus for iPad — really nice capacitive touch pressure sensitive stylus — but the Cintiq Companion looks super!

Come on, guys, a similar solution from Motion Computing (J3400, Dual
Core, Win7, HD, 64GB SDD, LED backlit, Wacom stylus, etc.) is under
$300 on Amazon. The famous Asus Slate EP121 is also ca. $500 (iCore5,
etc.) So what's with the killing price? ;-(

The quality of drawing on a Cintiq in unequal to that of a mobile pc. You're paying the Wacom tax which is worth everything in the world... for those with smaller wallets I'd go for a bosto instead.

Actually, Samsung makes two options that are very good. The Series 7 Slate is windows based and very good at doing digital drawings/ paintings. Less costly is the Note 10.1 which has been quite impressive using Sketchbook Pro and a very good painting program known as Infinite Painter. I think the Samsung Series 7 slate is 1300 and the Note 10.1 is 500 dollars. From what I understand Motion Computing does not have the sensitivity or offer as many features. Using an Ipad to draw with is not even a close comparison, even with the wacom pen. The Asus slate is also not in the same realm for digital drawing.

I own several Cintiqs and I'm about to purchase the Companion. I bought the EP121 Slate as an alternative to cintiq+laptop when on an off-site job and while I was able to do minor fix-ups, there is NO way Slate can do what a professional storyboard or concept artist needs it to. That's why the price :)
