[Ed - We saw this one at CES 2013 and it was an impressive sight. It is clear that Asus intends this for professional work as you can get a full HD (1080p) workspace and still have plenty of room for your favorite tools. The new MX299Q also works well for 3D animation and audio production. We are hoping to get our hands on one if Asus is nice enough to send one to the lab.]
