Looking for a tablet that offers good drawing ability

Hello all,

I'm looking for a stylist enabled tablet that an artist can use for painting.

I want to surprise my mom (who is a traditional painter) with a tablet that will allow her to create digital paintings.

I know she will appreciate such a device because I showed her a painting program on my Windows touch enabled laptop.

I'm looking for a 9-11 inch tablet that includes a stylist (sadly, that eliminates the iPad).

I believe that the only tablet designed for artists is the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 (includes a pressure sensitive stylus). This one starts at around $700.

Are there any other models worth considering?

Thank you.

Hi sconnell,

See below links you will get many s pen enable devices rather than Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. You may gift the device according to your mom requirement and budget. You may visit local store to get review of the products.

Sorry for the long wait. Thanks all.

I ended up purchasing the Samsung Galaxy Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 b/c it offered the best balance of a drawing tablet and generalist tablet.

Annoyed that Apple tablets cannot do this (except on the newly released mega model).
