    I do everything with my laptop, and its getting kind of frustrating to edit with a 14.1 screen. It just doesn't have the power to do any photoshop/lightroom work.

    Anyone do editing with just the laptop? What do you have as far as hardware, monitor, and editing software?

    How does the Bamboo help you editing?

    How much are you guys paying for the 30in monitors? Could I do editing on my flatscreen Samsung TV?

    My mouse scroll wheel sucks on my normal mouse.
    So with the bamboo in tablet mode I'll use the pen or the bamboo mouse to do my adjustments in LR via the bamboo mouse wheel, or drag it over via the pen

    in PS, it helps a ton with cloning/burning/etc, its so much more accurate than the mouse when you get a feel for it.

    in illustrator its really nice to use to edit things, or to draw items when doing web design/etc.
