Yes a cintiq is a peripheral. it plugs into a laptop or a tower and is basically an interactive monitor using the software you already have, just like a surface pro screen. It has 3 wires. one to the monitor port, one to usb, and one for power. I could use it exclusively if I chose to. It's just not efficient. The software comes with a virtual keyboard you can bring up on screen, 16 tactile buttons on the sides for programming and an onscreen button setup that isn't very friendly.  The thing is, the buttons do not light up nor are labeled in any way unless you press the center button. This brings up an unclickable onscreen image of the button layout with names which disappears as soon as you let go. So you have to remember what is what.

It would be so nice to have the artist pad onscreen and just drag it around wherever you need it to click on whatever you need.

I downloaded parallels but it does not come with windows... so I am not sure what to do with it. LOL! I just get the dos prompts and unable to boot message.
