    Hey everyone, so I am currently looking for a tablet to allow me to take notes during class in college while having good pressure sensitivity while drawing. The reason for a windows tablet is so that everything is easily transferable between all of my devices.
    I am also planning on trying to remote into my desktop in order to use programs such as Illustrator, Photoshop, and After Effects. This capability is not necessary, but just an added bonus if it is able to work.

    What is your budget?

    $300 USD

    Would you consider purchasing used/refurbished?


    Do you prefer a media/mobile tablet like the iPad, Windows tablet PC, or notebook convertible?

    Windows tablet or convertible.

    9+ inches

    Where do you live?

    United States

    Do you have any brand preferences?

    I do not.

    How many hours of battery life do you require?

    4+ hours.

    What will be the primary usage scenario of this tablet?

    Note-taking, drawing, entertainment.

    Do you have an OS preference?


    What software and tasks do you intend to run?

    Do you intend on playing games?

    Any games are basic windows games like solitaire or minesweeper

    Would you like to stream content through your home theater system?


    Screen Specifics

    Any preferences on screen resolution?

    1280x720 or higher, preferable 16:10 or 3:2 aspect ratio

    Will you be using the tablet outdoors? Do you need to be able to see it through glare from the sun?

    Will not be used outdoors

    Do you require a pen? With or without pressure sensitivity? Do you prefer Wacom EMR, AES, or N-trig?

    Yes, with pressure sensitivity. Dislike EMR.

    Component Specifics

    What size hard drive and memory do you require?

    64 gb for the hard drive is all that's needed, will be using cloud based files. 4 gb of ram is the minimum.

    What sort of inputs do you require, if any?

    SD or MicroSD

    I am currently looking at used Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 10 devices, along with the ASUS T102HA.
