I suppose this is not unlike the earlier one based on flying along the Alps the other day. Perhaps no worse for my not having a screen to put the pen onto. But I am still returning the pad to Dick Smith, it is not suitable for my task.
I have spent the day on building up this old Dell laptop, it does have a great screen! 15″ 1600 x 1200. I guess that is what has me looking at the Cintiq.
