Best Wacom Penabled tablet for artists?
First, some background. I'm a commercial illustrator knee deep in the Apple ecosystem. I have a MacPro, Air, iMac, iPad, and iPhone. If I could get one of them to perform the functions of a digital, portable art creation device, I would.
The lack of an accurate stylus with pressure sensitivity is a problem for me. Capacitive, dumb styluses with their rubber-ball-fish-filter-finger-sized tips are like drawing with dead crayons.
While Wacoms have their own problems (parallax between stylus and cursor position, input lag being two prominent ones), they're the best thing out there right now. With no real competition on the market, I have resigned myself to purchasing a Wacom penabled digitizer tablet or convertible. I have and use a Cintiq 20WSX and Intuos tablet and am looking to replicate that functionality on the go.
I've been doing some research and wonder if any of y'all have opinions on what the best tablet with a Wacom penabled digitizer is.
I'm hovering between the Lenovo ThinkPad X220 convertible tablet w/a SSD and i7 processor, the Asus EEE Slate series of tablets, and the Fujitsu LifeBook.
The Thinkpad has a slightly higher res screen than the other two, the Asus is cheaper, and the Fujitsu has an option for an Nvidia graphics chip that's superior than the other two. Each has their strength, but the ThinkPad is currently my favorite option.
Should I wait till Windows 8 hits and more tablets come to market?
Is there a better Wacom digitizer tablet out there that I've missed?
