    I am planning to use my MBP really strictly for art.

    I might get the Intuos and connect it with it. Anyone here tried the Intuos with their MBP?

    I am trying to decide on a good art app to use. Aside from Photoshop.

    I also use Photoshop myself, but with a Cintiq instead.

    Ah haha.

    Do you carry it around with you a lot? I heard there is a model of the CIntiq that lets you draw without having it connected to a computer.

    Nope, it's always in my home.

    I haven't heard about that portable Cintiq you mentioned, but I have heard about the ModBook Pro and ModBook Pro X.

    The ModBook Pro is basically a 13" mid-2012 cMBP modified into an enclosure with a Wacom touchscreen, incorporating Cintiq technology.

    The ModBook Pro X is a mid-2014 15" rMBP modified the same way as well.

    Pixelmator is a great Photoshop replacement for a casual user. Maybe for a power user too, but as a casual Photoshop user, that's all I can vouch for. :)
