The Wacom Cintiq Companion 2 is a worthy successor to the first generation Companion. Wacom has incrementally pushed the design of the Companion in a lot of great ways.

Cintiq Companion 2 i7 Review
In 2013 Wacom introduced the first of its new mobile tablets, the Cintiq Companion. This originally came in two flavours, one having an Android based operating system and the other using the Windows 8 operating system.
Myself, like many others, picked our jaws off the floor and then tried to figure out how we were going to pay for our own mobile Cintiq.
