    The new Haswell chip from Intel is coming out in June. Much better in power usage and built in graphics performance is going to jump significantly.
    What does this mean, depending on who you read, most high end laptops and tablets will get hours more usage on a charge, somewhat better performance
    and great increase in graphics performance for hardly any increase in price.
    At the very least, it will make the current crop of high end tablets and most laptops and desktops drop their price.

    True, i read that, but there wont be another surface pro till 2014, and it might be a 7" version.. I went ahead and bought it yesterday from staples, they got ten percent back in rewards with every windows tablet purchase

    I would be interested in your experiences with it, especially Photoshop and Draw.

    Does the surface pro have pressure sensitivity? Because recently CorelDRAW has added a pressure sensitive artistic media tool that freaken rocks for doing illustration work. I've been using it on my cintq but it would be nice to have a mobile version.

    You do realize that Wacom is working on their own mobile device? I'm holding out on that.

    I do have a Samsung tablet that has some pretty cool pressure sensitivity and it does use Wacom drivers, but still not there compared to the Cintiq.

    Well battery only past about 5 hours, corel works nicely, only thing is the right click button on the pen doesn't work. That kind of blows. Besides that i love it

    Did you try to change the options in the customization toolbox?

    Change the option of right click to something else.....and the back again to right click.
    Not sure why but this has happened to me in the past with one our Wacoms

    Thanks, i tried, no go... It seems to be a corel issue, because it works everywhere else, even in photopaint, in the cutout lab. Any advise?

    I vaguely remember the right click in Corel resulted in only a small rectangular blank box......years ago. I have no idea what Wacom model it was, what version of Corel or even what OS I was using.

    Call Wacom in the morning
    Not that I've ever needed to call them much but every time I did, they were wonderful, patient and knowledgable
    The issue was always resolved

    I haven't heard of any Surface Pro issues but that doesn't mean there aren't any.......
    at least if you call them they'll either tell you how to fix the problem or let you know it's a known issue
