    Drawing on the Surface Book

    I'm not disputing the use cases you describe. My point is that there's more than one use case and to dismiss the action the reviewer showed, reaching across the keyboard to draw on the screen with the SurfaceBook in Laptop-mode, because it doesn't fit your personal experience is premature. I...

    Drawing on the Surface Book

    hrrrrr. What vexes me is when someone calls something stupid just because it doesn't fit their point of view, and assumes their perspective must be true for everyone. I use my Cintiq 24hd in almost vertical position. I also use my Cintiq 21uX in the most upright position the stand allows it to...

    My first impressions with the sp3 i7, i'm an illustrator.

    To conclude this thread i want to let you know that after trying to work with the SP3 for another week i packed it up and shipped it back. Neither me or my partner (she's used to be working on a Cintiq 24hd) were able to achieve a satisfactory drawing experience on the SP3 for the previously...

    My first impressions with the sp3 i7, i'm an illustrator.

    Since Microsoft advertised the SP3's pen experience to be equal or even superior than the pen experience of the previous surface models and considering that artists like frenden, Penny Arcade's Gabe or Rick from the surfaceproartist's blog did not outright dismiss the SP3, as well as overall...

    Hey guys, I've returned from my work-trip and here's my report on how the SP3 performed for ~40h of Photoshop/Manga Studio duty. Please understand that i was unable to investigate crashes when they appeared because i was working for a client at the time. I can only retell what happened, not...

    Thank you all for your responses and for pointing out the HTC Scribe Pen. I'll order that pen and will try working with it. It will take me until the end of the coming week though before i can say anything about the drawing experience with the HTC Scribe Pen on the Surface Pro 3. I'm also...

    My first impressions with the sp3 i7, i'm an illustrator.

    I don't know what OOB and YOIYO stands for. I'm familiar with Surfaceproartists blog and also with the linked to surface-blog-post. The surface blog post was written on may 22nd. It's now september 21st. No pen pressure control panel has been released afaik. So if you're not using Manga...

    The SP2 is too small for me. If i have to return the SP3 i will give the Cintiq Companion a try, even though the cintiq companions hardware is hardly worth the price they are asking for it. Or look for another >12" device.

    My first impressions with the sp3 i7, i'm an illustrator.

    Hey guys, i'm a professional illustrator (you can see my work here and on my blog if you wish to do so) and bought the SP3 i7 because i was hoping to get a one device mobile workstation. Unfortunately as it looks right now the surface pro 3 isn't, because i have to hook up at least a graphic...
