So I just spent over an hour in bestbuy. Downloaded Autodesk sketchbook on a few different machines. Samsung Notebook pro, hp spectre x360, Microsoft surface laptop 2 and random dell. All of them were perfectly fine. Did provide clarity about one thing though. I’ve swapped between X230T, cintiq 24HD, and yiynova mvp.. plus random brush pens and such in my sketchbook. Often all in the same day. I think the end result is... I’m straight up immune to digitizer variance unless it’s excessively pronounced. Sooooo.. friggen now what? lol. I have even more choices. I guess I'll start looking at the cross roads of affordability with screen competency- brightness/sRGB coverage/resolution. Sigh. Thanks anyway, guys!
