I have a confession. I use a MOUSE in all my editing. I have tried 2x now to use Wacom tablets. Everyone says they are a must have – you must edit using a “pen” not a “mouse.” I use to have the Intuos. Tried it once. It felt weird to me so I gave up.
Then I bought this top of the line, state of the art Wacom Cintiq 12WX – you literally draw right on the screen. You see your image right under you. Yet, even after spending $1,000, I just cannot get myself to use it. It just sits here, I stare at it. But nothing. I smile as I look at my logitech mouse and say, “hmmm, wonder if or when I will pick up that pen…”
Anyway, as a result of me staring at it too long, and me knowing that so many salivate at the thought of owning one of these, I decided to see if any of you is interested in purchasing it from me. Retail is $999. It is basically new. It sits here set up but not used. So now is your chance to get one. I will sell for $899 ($100 off), plus shipping – I can ship UPS or Fed Ex. If it does not sell, I guess I will just keep staring at it. But this is getting silly. I think I will try again in a few years. But for now I will just hug my mouse
If you are interested, send me a comment in the “comment box” and ask me to contact you.
Thanks for hearing my pen dimemna.
Here are details from Wacom’s Website:
The Cintiq 12WX is a 12.1” wide format pen display with a native WXGA resolution of 1280 x 800. It has an integrated adjustable stand that allows the display to be inclined or quickly adjusted for in-lap use. In addition, the Cintiq 12WX has an integrated dome-shape pivot located on the back-center of the product, allowing the user to rotate it when it is placed flat on the desktop. To further enhance your comfort, the Cintiq 12WX comes with a cushioned Grip Pen for use directly on the screen. This comfort allows you to experience a true pen-on-paper sensation in the most natural way possible.
