  Amazing,  2012-01-05

First off, I would like to say how helpful the staff at MacMall was helping me get this order. There were some issues with shipping & then my bank, but they were extremely helpful through it all.

The Cintiq was a Christmas present for my wife who had been wanting one of these for a while. The videos of the Cintiq seemed incredible & I was prepared for there to be some 'it seemed too good to be true' when we got it going. However, it is everything they advertised. I was surprised. My wife loves it. The initial setup was very easy. The unit isn't that heavy, but it is a little akward trying to get out of the box. Once we sat it on her desk though, it was easy to move around & adjust. I plugged it into her computer & installed the included software (including the Adobe & Corel freebees) & she was off to the races. While learning to use photoshop can be daunting, the unit itself is very simple to use & even I (If you know a person who is horrible at art, I am even less talented) was able to make a simple drawing with the included sketchpad software. Obviously it is not a cheap drawing interface, but my wife & daughter use it everyday, with each wishing they had more time on it. I was somewhat apprehensive when I was looking at getting it, but knowing how well it works & how much they love it, I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Aside from its high cost, I have absolutely no complaints with it.

If you are wondering about computer specs, I would say the computer I built my wife has medium performance (might be equal to a $600-700 rig purchased at a retail store).
Win7 x64
AMD II quad-core
4 gb ddr3
GT 220 (1gb ddr3 ram)
Cintiq as the only display
With this setup she was able to run all of the included art software & draw with no lag or jitters.
For her desk, she needs to run 2 monitors & some other programs while still leaving the drawing software running. I am currently upgrading her system to a solid-state drive, 16gb of ram & a video card with dual DVI outs in the hopes of preempting any system bottlenecks.
