Hi, my main drawing device is a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S-Pen and I am looking for something with a bigger screen size. Since I like quiet devices I already checked fanless Surface Pro (disliked the pen) and am unsure about ipad pro because I've got no experience with apple devices at all. Would be nice to hear your thoughts on that. Thanks in advance. General Questions. 1. What is your budget? 1.500 EUR max 2.
