In December, Wacom is going to release two MobileStudio Pro tablets designed to allow digital artists to create from almost anywhere. These Windows 10 models will have Intel processors and high-end specs… along with price tags to match.
One version will have a 13.3-inch screen, Core i5 or i7 processor with Iris 550 graphics chip, either 4GB/8GB/16GB of RAM, and either 64GB/128GB/256GB/512GB Solid State Drive (SSD).
A 15.6-inch model will come in two variations. One will sport a Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, 56GB SSD, and NVIDIA Quadro M600M graphics chip with 2GB more RAM. The other variation of this model will have an i7 chip, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and NVIDIA Quadro M1000M GPU with 4GB RAM.
Both will ship with a Pro Pen 2, which Wacom promises will suffer from less lag than its predecessor, while offering greater precision and 4x as many levels of pressure sensitivity.
In addition to operating as stand-alone computers, either MobileStudio Pro model can be function as a Cintiq drawing pad for a second desktop PC.
Some of the higher-end MobileStudio Pro versions will come with Intel Realsense 3D cameras, allowing users to image objects in 3D.
Wacom will offer a Bluetooth keyboard and a three-position stand for these tablets, allowing them to be used as business tools beyond drawing and painting.
Artists interested in either of these will need to pay between $1499.95 and $2999.95 for a MobileStudio Pro, depending on the configuration.
All versions are scheduled for release in late November, though an exact date has yet to be revealed by Wacom.
