    Thanks man. I didn't know about this one. I was considering the SP2 and Fujitsu T902. The SP2 because I read this 'review' goo.gl/fhu6yC

    The T902 seems solid, I'm a bit worried about the weight. But more importantly I don't wanna spend that much money since drawing/animating is just a hobby for now.
    I think I could probably discard the animation part and keep doing that on my home PC. What would be a great windows tablet for photoshop/clip studio for ~300-350 ?

    The Cube Mix Plus is excellent for Clip Studio Paint. You could save a few bucks by skipping the keyboard.
