I'm looking for a laptop that can convert to my boyfriend. He wants something to paint with (maybe with Photoshop), but he's not a serious artist, so I do not want to get anything expensive. My budget is not very large. I also like a laptop that can switch over to a tablet so that he can also use it as a regular laptop, because I think it will become the main function of it. My budget is around $ 500- $ 1000 ... I really can not go much higher. It's not brand new or anything ... I've looked at old laptops and / or used / refurbished, too. As long as it is effective for drawing. It's great to get some advice from any artist with a digital painting experience.
