Really Need an advice for cintiq pro 16 (Mac user)

Hi guys,
I really need an advice since I'm about to pull a trigger and buy my first cintiq. I use MacBook pro 15" late 2013 integrated Intel graphic card thunderbolt 2 .

My main concern for the product (from what I have been researching for sometime) are the line issue, lag, fan noise and heat . Another part is about compatibility with my MacBook pro model and Photoshop cs6 (which I primary use for digital art). Can I push cintiq 16 to 4k 60? (With new Wacom link plus)

If there are still many problems for cintiq pro 16. Would you recommend that I should rather go for pro 13 instead since there seems no problem at all and save 700 euro.

Thank you very much for your time. I don't want to buy and return it just because it is not working on the part that i don't know the product well.

If anyone has an answer or any suggestions please kindly comment. Iwould be highly appreciate.

Minna

It should work. I use a MacBook Pro 2012 for device testing and it works really well. You should have no problem reaching 4k @ 60 fps if your Mac is able to support it as well. PS CS6 is a bit outdated and no longer receiving updates from Adobe (as far as I know) but it should also work fine.

In answer to your other questions:

The line issue has been fixed.

The fan noise is only noticeable in a quiet room. It isn't very noisy.

The tablet doesn't get too hot. In summer, all Cintiqs are a little less comfortable to use. I have a small desk fan that I point over the surface of the tablet in the hottest months.

The 16-inch Cintiq is much nicer to use than the 13-inch. The extra space is worth it.

Thank you very much for answering me Freedomeagle.
For the size, I totally agree with you and lean a lot toward 16 model. I do prefer to work on 15 inch MacBook pro rather than 13. I assume the same preference could be apply for pen display tablet. However it just the issues from reviews I have come across that does make me think more than twice.
It's my first pen display tablet lol.
