Has anyone here ever used one for art and graphics vs a "traditional" graphics tablet ? I'd heard it was a comparable option to the Wacom Cintiq and is, of course, much lower in price. I was thinking about getting one sometime, since the SP 3 is about to come out and so I assume the SP 2's price will be going down after that.

From reading past reviews a lot of artists like the Surface Pro. I don't own any of the Surface Pro but I own one of the newer Intuos (rebranded Bamboo line). The Surface Pro is a good alternative if you want something portable to draw on.

Surfacebook Pro vs pen display monitor

Surfacebook Pro will never be as great as the best drawing tablet monitor devices, but it will be good and way more portable. The latency is low so it feels quite natural.

I'm a graphics professional using Photoshop, Clip Studio, Daz Studio 3D, Indesign, Zbrush and Illustrator and I use it everyday. It has transformed my workflow even though I used to be a die-hard Mac and XP-Pen Artist 15.6 Pro display graphic tablet user, but this device has freed me up immensely. Being able to work in the front room on the same device that I have on my desk at my job is sooooo liberating.
