Bought myself a Surface Pro 2 a little over a week ago and have been having an awesome time playing around with the sculpting tools in Blender. There’s something about sculpting with a pressure sensitive pen straight onto the screen that just works for me, I never really enjoyed drawing or _attempting_ to sculpt using my old Intuos 3 on PC, but with this I can’t put the pen down!
**Please excuse my feeble sculpting ability, I’ve only started trying to do this stuff in the last couple of weeks, the last time I attempted to sculpt a head was 13 years ago in my final year of high school.**
Back to talking about the SP2…it is so damn nice to have a PC/tablet to work on. As much as I’ve enjoyed my iPad and Paper and Procreate, the SP2 has a billion times (okay maybe a few million less than a billion) more functionality and possible uses, it’s super flexible and allows me to use it in any way _I_ want. And if I feel like it I can even install OSX on a separate partition…not that I have any use for it but cool none the less.
Overall, if you’re thinking of getting one as a portable workstation for a bit of ‘on-the-road’ work then it totally fits the bill. It’s a bit under powered compared to my 2-3 yr old desktop but for a tablet/laptop/ultrabook replacement it is great. Hopefully MS will give the SP3 a bump in CPU and GPU power next year because if they do I’ll be lining up for another one straight away.
