Excerpt: Scarygoround comic author and artist John Allison spends some time with Wacom 's desk-conquering screen/tablet combo the Cintiq 24HD. Wacom’s Cintiq line of pen tablets has long been a holy grail for artists and designers. Despite a hefty price tag, these tablets lend a fluency and efficiency to illustration that will usually repay the outlay for professionals.
Pros: Huge working area; improved tablet buttons; supports Mini DisplayPort, VGA, DVI-I and DVI-A; ergonomically designed and widely adjustable; VESA mountable
Cons: Not at all portable; requires two people to move it; difficult to accommodate in tight workspaces or in a two-monitor setup
