Or - maybe this is the poor artist's Cintiq.

The Note is my early half-century survival present to myself. (Turning 50 in just over a month.) I was looking at Cintiqs and of course also looking at just how long I'd have to save up for one! But then I found out about the S pen and the Note line from Samsung.

Disadvantage :( - it isn't a direct input device like the Cintiq. So there's a bit of file sharing back and forth. And it is a bit smaller than the smallest Cintiq. (It is just a bit larger than my Nook HD+)

Advantage - it is considerably cheaper than the cheapest Cintiq. And it has the lovely pressure levels for natural style painting. And best of all, you can extract stuff right on the image since it is a touch screen.

I've had it less than a full day, but so far, so good. The S-pen is amazing. Photoshop Touch is taking some getting used to. And until I get my wireless network and sharing all figured out, I'm using Dropbox to transfer files between the tablet and the desktop system. My brain is a bit mush still since I've already been trying to get used to Windows 8 and the rest of the changes that come when you replace a 7 year old system!

I'm getting handier with the tablet - and finding some very cool apps out there for art. Very glad I made this purchase.

The best I've found so far (other than Photoshop Touch which came with the tablet I got, great for extracting!) are: Autodesk Sketchbook Pro and Sketchbook Ink, Infinite Painter, Sketcher Pro, and Serious Paint. They're all optimized to work with the S-pen which is nice. Other apps I've gotten that are fun are WaterColor Pencils Lite, ArtFlow, and Auryn Ink. For quick stress relief (completely unpredictable sometimes) there is Zen Brush and Zen! And I have had some luck making fonts with InstaFontMaker.
