When I encounter the artist almost all demanded the pressure sensitive tablet.
The Windows tablet market seems to have fizzled again and you find few choices.
Purpose - college student / graphics artist
Price - around $1000
Form-factor - tablet/slate/convertible laptop
Requirements - powerful processor, touch input, pressure sensitive pen input, able to run Windows 7 (and can be upgraded to Windows .
Best one I was able to find was ASUS Eee Slate EP121 and HP TouchSmart laptops seem somewhat decent as well.
Your input is much appreciated.
