Windows Gabe, one of the two guys behind Penny Arcade, has reviewed the Surface Pro - as an artist. He's in love with it. "Sketching with the Stylus in Sketchbook was awesome. It's important to note that you CAN lay your hand on the screen while you draw without messing up your work. There was no brush lag at all and the pressure sensitivity worked perfectly. The stylus itself felt exactly like drawing on my Cintiq except that the Surface screen is smooth whereas the Cintiq screen has a bit of texture to it." I'm no artist, so I got a Surface RT, but I'm loving it too. The tablet/laptop combination just works. My ZenBook and Nexus 7 have been off and in storage since the day I got the RT.

on a side jokey note, shame the Surface hasn't got a VGA/DVI connector as he could connect up his Cinq24HD onto the surface and have multiple drawing surfaces ;)

Just curious on this... the Surface Pro has a mini DisplayPort. Do you simply need video output for what you describe? If so - this is actually possible, and I would be interested to hear if there's any appreciable latency difference between the two input methods.
