id say get the intuos 5, you can buy the RF wireless receiver...all of those work with windows xp vista 7 regardless of your hardware specs and the latest mac OSX i think its 10.4 and later but i would not get them if you only had windows 8 considering 8 just came out, its gonna be buggy
wacom products even work on linux distros ive used my intuos3 on ubuntu with gimp, its pretty awesome
imo have a least 4gb or ram and a decent 2+ core cpu can be intel i3 i5 i7 for amd i would suggest the fx chips the fx8320 is about 200 bucks for a quad core very nice but thats overkill unless your gonna do some 3d stuff aaaand a decent GPU get a gtx 550 ti or the gtx 480...very cheap right now you can get one online for like 150 bucks very fast good with allot of applications good acceleration with Open Cl and Cuda etc. also does great with wacom products
Step 1: Go to www.wacom.com Step 2: Look up the system requirements for the Cintiq 12WX Step 3: Compare with your computer's specs
The Cintiq is the most demanding of the 3 hardware, so whatever that needs is the only stuff you gotta think about. If that's supported by your computer, which it more than likely is, then you have nothing to worry about. Just make sure you download the latest drivers for each device for your specific OS (e.g. don't download a driver for Vista 64-bit when you only have Vista 32-bit).
