The point of a msp for an indoor mobile use.

Hey, I'm looking to buy a pen tablet but I'm struggling between keeping my laptop and buy a cintiq pro 16 or go with the msp16. The point is that I want to be able to draw on my desk, couch and bed, but not outside. For this maybe a msp would be overkill but it has those lovely express keys that would be usefull on my sofa while doing zbrush stuff. So, for my case, what should I do ?

Just my two cents on the issue, but if you aren't getting it for it's portability, then definitely go with the Cintiq. The express keys are nice, but hardly worth the price jump. (Especially when there are cheaper, albeit hackier, methods of getting express key functionality out of bluetooth devices.)

I am, however, curious as to just what length cable will still work with the Cintiq Pro.

Two remarks here:
1) The standard USB-C cable length applies - depending on the setup this might be only 2m (USB-C distinguishes different profiles with different maximum cable lengths)
2) There might not be the need for Express Keys when you get used to the On-Screen Controls (in the Wacom Driver).

I would suggest keeping the laptop instead of Cintiq pro or some other thing you want to buy. but if you are gonna buy it for portability then go for Cintiq like the above guy said.

If the laptop is not running well then I think you should have to buy a tablet.
