Is the Cintiq Companion good value?

Compared to UltrabookTM laptops similarly equipped with 8 GB memory, 512 GB solid state drive, a 13.3” multi-touch screen and a professional stylus, the Cintiq Companion compares very favourably. For professional artists and designers, Cintiq is a good investment because it significantly increases their efficiency and productivity, allowing them to complete more work in the same amount of time.
