Here’s what makes the Wacom Cintiq Companion 2 a must in every serious illustrator’s studio (whether that’s a loft with a fabulous view of the Los Angeles cityscape or a couch that conveniently serves as a makeshift bed for you and your 4-legged buddy):
A breath of fresh air. Literally.
Sometimes your designated creative space just isn’t inspiring ~ even at your regular 4 a.m. warrior hour. You don’t have to be a writer to understand what Fowler meant when he wrote that it’s easy to create art ~ because all you have to do is sit staring at a blank screen “until drops of blood form on your forehead.” The Wacom Cintiq Companion 2 gives you the freedom and the flexibility to get up and get out of your walled studio space while still enabling you not only to bring your work along, but also get your projects done without compromising the process or quality of your work. So, if you currently work on a 24hd Cintiq in your designated creative space, when you now head out with the Companion 2 you can seamlessly continue working on your project without a hitch. And, depending upon the size of your files and if you tend to gravitate toward the upper limits of RAM, your battery’s life (while you’re at the beach, your client’s location, or the local café) can last anywhere between 4-8 hours.

It’s a solid investment.
Like any other professional in any other field, investing in top-of-the-line, well-constructed, quality-centric equipment will streamline your whole creative process ~ from first staring at that blank screen to bringing your masterpiece to fruition, presenting it to your client, making any requested revisions, and filing it as completed. (Since it’s available with such a wide range of specs and with tons of customization possibilities, making those oft-stressful client-requested revisions that require adding brand new elements to your drawing’s foundation will now be a breeze via your Wacom Cintiq Companion 2. You’ll be able to easily add the after-thought requests without having to start from scratch or compromise the integrity of your original illustration).
It’s locked and loaded.
In addition to the thoughtfully-included front and rear cameras, as well as front-facing speakers, the Wacom Cintiq Companion 2 also has lots of other features and gadgets. It comes with 10 physical customizable hotkeys, a rotation lock, volume control, a power slider, the beloved Wacom pen (and a great pen case), a mini display port, a Micro SD & SDXC card slots, a display port for traditional Cintiq functionality, a headphone jack, three USB 3.0 ports, a carrying case capable of housing cables or an external keyboard, and more!
It’s fabulously fast and furiously powerful.
While the Wacom Cintiq Companion 2 runs on Windows, you can still use all your familiar versions of Painter, Photoshop, and other programs of choice when you’re physically away from your traditional workstation. You can opt for power ranging from an 4th gen core i3, to a 5th gen core i7 and choose from 4GB to 16GB of RAM; it’s also got lots of size options for SSDs. Whichever one you select, you can expect it to perform flawlessly and be quick to respond to both your personal touch gestures and pen-to-tablet gestures.
An awesome solution for the professional artist who want to draw, sketch, and paint beneath the stars or under the studio lights, the Wacom Cintiq Companion 2 is a self-contained portable Windows computer with all the Wacom graphics built in that can be seamlessly connected to a Mac or PC.
