I've been using an old discontinued Bamboo Fun tablet for a while and since I've saved up a bit of money, I thought I should get myself a Tablet PC for drawing purposes. I've been reading and researching for a good budget tablet but all of this information is seriously doing my head in, hopefully you guys could give me some recommendations. 1. What is your budget? Up to $1500. 2. Would you consider purchasing used/refurbished? Yep. 3. Do you prefer a media/mobile tablet like the iPad, Windows tablet PC, or notebook convertible? Undecided, perhaps a slate but I'll probably go for the cheaper one should multiple models be recommended. 4. What size Tablet PC would you prefer? 10 to 13-inches 5. Which country do you intent to purchase from [where do you live]? Australia. 6. Do you have any preferences to brand loyalty or dislikes? No. 7. How many hours battery life do you require? 3+ hours would be great. 8. What will be the primary usage scenario of this tablet? (Email/Web Surfing/Drawing/Word Processing/Entertainment/Notetaking etc) Mainly for drawing, painting, and perhaps some web surfing purposes, but the major deciding factor is that I can smoothly draw on it. 9. Do you have an OS preference? For example, do you own an iPhone and a Mac, or are you a Windows fan? Do you own an Android device and use Google services frequently? I don't have any experiences with any other OS than Windows, currently I'm using Windows 7 on my laptop. 10. What software and tasks do you intend to run? (Microsoft Office or other Word Processing Suite/Photoshop/3D Studio Max/Autocad etc) Photoshop, Sketchbook Pro, Paintool SAI, you know, those sort of programs. 11. Do you intend on playing Games? If so please list. No. 12. Would you like to stream content through your home theater system? No. Screen Specifics 1. Any preference on screen resolution? The higher the better. 2. Will you be using the tablet outdoors? Do you need to be able to see it through glare from the sun? Yes, but this isn't a deciding factor so I don't mind if the device is reflective. 3. Do you require a pen? With or without pressure sensitivity? Do you prefer Wacom or N-trig? Yes. Pressure sensitivity is a must. Wacom. Component Specifics 1. What size Hard Drive and Memory do you require? Would you like expandable memory? I'm happy with whatever as long as I can draw smoothly. 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? USB ports would be great, other than that I don't care much (I've read up on this topic but it was a bit too much for my brain to process, perhaps I'll do some more research later). 1. Other non specific items ~ please add other items you require not covered above? None. 2. Additional requests ~ anything other you wish to take into consideration? None.
