A lot of designers ask us if Tablet PCs are good for mobile sketching and drawing. The answer is an overwhelming yes! Many of our Tablet PCs like the HP TouchSmart Tm2 seen below use a Wacom Active Digitizer pen that is proximity and pressure sensitive up to 512 levels.
Whilst they might have a touch screen the Active Digitizer technology is different. It allows you to:
- Rest your hand on the screen without interfering with your sketch
- Use pressure sensitivity in Photoshop – press harder for a thick line, soft for a thin stroke
- Work quickly – the combination of the Wacom Active Digitizer and modern Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors means that there is no lag while you are drawing.
Check out the video below from a Tablet PC user in France who is drawing on a HP TouchSmart Tm2.
So if you are an artist or graphic designer and you’re wondering what Tablet PC is best for you, feel free to contact us to discuss.
