The Cintiq Companion is a fully functional, Windows 8 based tablet that enables you to run full versions of creative software such as Adobe Photoshop®, Corel Painter® and more. The Cintiq Companion hybrid acts as a traditional desktop Cintiq when plugged into a Mac or PC and runs AndroidTM applications when mobile.
[…] At first glance, the Cintiq Companion and Cintiq Companion hybrid look like the currently available Cintiq 13HD. A closer look reveals an attractive, brushed aluminum casing with a variety of ports on the sides for peripherals and other devices. Both feature full HD displays (13 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixels) with exceptional color quality and a wide viewing angle. Like the 13HD, they include a Wacom Pro Pen which offers 2,048 levels of pressure and tilt sensitivity.
Without getting too deep into the specs, the Cintiq Companion is a fully-fledged Windows 8 tablet, powered by a 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and Intel® HD Graphics 4000. It is available in two models offering either 8GB RAM with 256GB SSD with Windows 8 (for $1999), or 8GB memory with 512GB SSD with Windows 8 Pro (for $2499).
