    Screen Specifics

    1. Any preference on screen resolution? None

    2. Will you be using the tablet outdoors? Do you need to be able to see it through glare from the sun? See the above linked FAQ for guidance It would be nice but I could go without.

    3. Do you require a pen? With or without pressure sensitivity? Do you prefer Wacom or N-trig? See the above linked FAQ for guidance Wacom, this part if very important.

    Component Specifics

    1. What size Hard Drive and Memory do you require? Would you like expandable memory?
    Any size, 500GB is more than enough. SSD would be nice but not required. It needs to have room for improvement for the future as I will add in more ram

    2. What sort of inputs do you require, if any? Would you like full-sized USB and SD card slots? Are microUSB and microSD ok? Do you require HDMI inputs? A full sized usb is a must. A hdmi input would be a big plus

    1. Other non specific items ~ please add other items you require not covered above? None atm

    2. Additional requests ~ anything other you wish to take into consideration? Battery life and size are after thoughts. I have a very powerful desktop and use a extra large intuos 4. I am tired of carrying it somewhere when I want to draw. The only thing I care about with this tablet is the most power for the price.

    The only 13+ inch screen on a current gen tabletPC is the T902 or T901. You could maybe get a used T900, but the older they get the more they will struggle with 3D modelling.

    The most power for your buck right now is the Lenovo X230t , but it has a smaller screen and lower resolution.
