Sup /g/. I'm a giant faggot who uses an old tablet computer to draw on, but I'm tired of having no real sensitivity on the screen. I've looked around at the pricing of USB drawing tablets and come to the conclusion that Wacom are way too expensive for what I'm doing, which is mostly just doodling and selling dirt cheap artwork eventually.

What are some good alternatives to Wacom? I've looked at Huion products a bit and they seem like a good alternative.

Bonus level: Are any tablet PCs worth checking out? It's comfortable looking directly at my work, but I figure I can train myself away from that.

Right now I have a Intuos art medium and it is really nice. What I am really saving up for is the Yiynova 22u v3(white one on left) that is in the same price range as the Cintiq 13. Still a hard decision but I really want the larger of the two.

You don't say what kind of old tablet PC you have, but the technology hasn't really changed in 20 years. Newer Wacom is the same as Wacom in a TC1100. The only significant addition in the pro-level products was the seldom-used angle sensitivity.

Devices with the newest N-trig digitizers (Surface Pro 3+, Sony tablets) have less cursor offset compared to Wacom, so that's something.

As far as the dedicated drawing tablets go, I'm only familiar with the (underwhelming) Wacom line.

I'm mostly just lurking until more comments pop up, but I'm going to read into the Intuos a bit more in the meantime.

It's a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. It works for what I do but I have noticed it's age is really starting to show; and often the drawing lags on the screen or is just not detected entirely.

If you cant afford basic wacom you must be really poor
Anyway if you plan to sell your art/drawings then a good and reliable drawing tablet is an investment. Not neccesarily expensive but not crap either. If you buy crap then you will spend more more somewhere down the line

Oh wow, I thought you meant something actually old (and a tablet PC, not some android pos).

You're starting from such a bad place that something like an X61t should be excellent in comparison.

>>52407466
get the huion 610 pro. it's a good size, has all the sensitivity you'll need, and costs about as much as the shittiest 8" wacom tablet

I have a note 10.1 2014 ed which is still nice. My problem is the stylus feels like a toothpick after a while and most of the alternative s-pens suck with major offset.

I am just saving up for a much larger device(and keep the tablet for rough sketches and stuff).

I only got to play around in Layerpaint HD though.

Get sketchbook pro, I had original note 10.1 with sketchbook and it was awesome
>>
>>52408017
I was actually mirin' this one a bit. Anyone else have experience with this?
>>
you could ebay an old wacom, they last forever and really are the best out there for that market
>>
get an intuous

They do. My Graphire 4 is still kicking since 2005 and the only thing that looked like it came out of the Vietnam war was the stylus. I just need a new stylus for it.
