So the gf is looking for a laptop that has a decent touch screen as she likes to draw on it using some software and a touchpen. She is currently looking at the Surface Go… Now, we tested it in store and it really seems to have good (not really delayed) feedback when drawing but the specs at that price point make me cringe so I thought I’d ask if someone knows any mentionable alternatives? Anyway, maybe that’s just me expecting too much so yeah^^
Surface Go is priced at: ~400€ + ~60€ Type Cover + ~70€ Pen
I’m afraid there isn’t much in her budget though. The surface Go is an amazing device, albeit overpriced. But chances are your girlfriend wants something very similar to the Surface and there just isn’t much apart from some Chinese stuff that doesn’t come remotely close.
Fair enough. That’s more or less what my own research was getting at. It seems like most people separate drawing and a good value laptop. Drawing being an iPad thing, a good value laptop being smth else. Anyway thanks for all the comments so far. I’ll have a look at some Lenovo/Medion with touch support but don’t suppose they’ll be better, really.
It’s a bit like with some clients I’ve had. You get an order, he tells you he needs 20k IPs for SEO, and you gotta make the best outa it.
Nope, not in her budget. Laptops often have a touchscreen as a secondary source of input, the Surface has it as a primary source. A second source of input often has to come in cheap… Multi finger support, for example, likely won’t be supported on the cheap Lenovo / Medion models.
