I've been learning drawing ol pencil n paper for a couple months and now after a digital portable option, i got a Surface pro 4 and a Raphael 520 pen based on TabletPros video didn't realize SP4 doesn't have tilt so ordered a broken SP5 to attempt a screen repair but later found videos detailing line wobble with MPP vs EMR vs AES and felt like an idiot as the SP5 and pen is still in the mail lol. fast forward more youtube/fourm deepdives and I'm torn/confused on a few options: Considering the Samsung Galaxy Book 12 but results are confusing as 2ndhand starts at $600 for the 12" 128gb 4gb ram, m3 cpu varient but a couple Book2s show up for $700 with a mobile snapdragon cpu? id assume a 8core mobile cpu would be better than the duel core m3? the 'ion, S, and Flex' models seem to be way out of my prince range from $1700-$3000+ :S the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro 15" which looked perfect except for starting at 2.5grand and only overseas :/ I'm not even sure what varients have EMR and what don't it's super confusing. second option was the Lenovo Flex 5 14" can get it new at $992 from amazon via the US. though it's AES and a little bit concerned if it shows up broken id be out of pocket a lot dealing with returns + the US is a kinda ground zero for covid right now :S and that's where I'm at, any other tab suggestions would be greatly appreciated! been going a little insane looking at 2in1s n tabs the last half week straight haha. with hindsight i shouldn't of purchased an SP4 or a broken SP5 thinking ill repair it because from all the reviews i don't think the m3 cpu and 4gb ram will cut it even if i do manage a repair lol. thanks for your time frens.
