    currently i am using either:
    30inch Studio + 22inch Samsung
    or at the office
    15inch MacPro + 22inch Samsung

    I am not a drawing person at all, but i am
    so used to using my Cintiq for my day to day
    operations just like i would a mouse!

    Now my Intuos is breaking so i am thinking
    about getting the Cintiq either 12 or 21inch.

    Since i could not find a place in boston to try one out,
    i have the following questions:

    1st: Right now my tablet is mapped to both screens, will i still have the ability (with express key or so) to temporarily switch the control from viewing one view to controlling both screens? have on my second one usually movies or mail

    2nd: can i have my tablet mirrored to my screen and have different resolutions on both?

    3rd: if i do not like the thing at all, can i just use it like a normal tablet?

    4th: My dreamsetup would be:
    Having the wacom as my main screen, but with a quick button press, it would switch to tablet mode on the second screen, do you know what i mean?

    Thank you

    My current work setup:

    MacPro with 2x22" monitors, a Cintiq W12 and an Intuos 3 6x8.

    When I was using the Cintiq only, You can assign both an express key and a pen key as a display switcher.

    I am attaching a screen cap so you can see.

    1) Yes
    2) No (Mirrored implies that you are projecting the same screen, hence the same resolution)
    3) Yes
    4) Yes, and you can do that.

    Cool. I've been wandering about this for some time.
