Wacom is well-known for their interactive pen displays, pen tablets and digital interface solutions. Over the years they have produced products that have helped photographers, artists and a host of other creative professionals create and design. The newest addition to their products is the Cintiq 13HD. The Cintiq 13HD is a slim, compact, high resolution display that uses a pen-on-screen technique for endless creative flexibility.

The Cintiq 13HD is a 13.3-inch display. It is 14mm thick and weighs 2.6 pounds. It comes with a four position adjustable stand for easy use in a multitude of situations. The screen is an interactive pen display that includes four customizable ExpressKeys, a Rocker Ring and a Home Button just like the larger Cintiq versions. The screen is a 1920x1080 high resolution LCD with a 178 degree viewing area that renders 16.7 million colors.

The Cintiq comes shipped with the Pro Pen. The Pro Pen offers 2,048 levels of sensitivity and tilt recognition. The Pro Pen includes a carrying case which also holds additional nibs and color rings. The Cintiq 13HD is easy to attaches to any computer via a 3-in-1 cable that comes with a USB, HDMI and power connection.

The specs are clearly impressive, but this pretty little screen comes with a hefty price tag of $1000. It will be available in early April 2013.
