Looking for a little advice from computer savvy folks. I buy my computers primarily for what I do for a living - Illustration - but I also would like to go with my best option to support my hobby - Gaming.
I'm fairly certain either would be a healthy improvement from my current machine: a 2010 MacBook Pro with a 288MB video card and 4 GB of ram.
Surface Pro 2 $1799
Wacom Cintiq Companion $2499
The models I'm looking at are the highest end of each, both have 8GB of ram and a 512GB SSD. I can't seem to find any information on the video cards, and the one difference I see is the SP2 uses the i5 and the WC the i7, but being a noob, not sure if that warrants the $700 price difference.
As far as a drawing tool, I like the Wacom's larger screen and I feel some brand loyalty to them since I've been using their products for years, but it's balanced out by the sleek design of the surface and it's extra mobility.
The tie breaker for me is what will handle games better. Also note that screen size won't be a factor because I'll be doing most, if not all of my gaming at home, and I'll have it hooked up to an external monitor.
