    Is there a recommended tablet for PC?

    Hi, I've started using using Artrage on an Ipad and would like to move on to the PC version with a Pen tablet - can you recommended a suitable tablet ?
    I don't have the budget for display tablet like the Cintiq.

    Hello CollinSW and welcome to the ArtRage forums
    If you are considering a non-screen tablet and have the budget I would recomend a Wacom Intuos Pro Medium size or Large size.
    If my current Intuos 4 should ever fail me I would get a new Intuos Pro without hesitation.
    There are many other capable non-screen tablets out there to chose from but as of yet I have found no others who’s drivers offer the amount of user customisable possibilities in settings.

    + 22" HD Monitor ~ macOS 10.13.6 ~ 4 Core i7 3.1GHz CPU ~ 16GB RAM ~ Wacom Intuos4 M and a Spyder4Pro (to keep the colours true!)

    I use a Wacom Intuos 3 for many years now.

    I had other tablets before - with more durable surfaces, but the drivers were shit.

    I have 2 monitors and could not access the second monitor with the pen, but with the
    Intuos everything worked perfectly.

    Later I bought a small early Wacom Bamboo with touch - this was cheap and crappy even though
    it is from Wacom. Touch did not work properly. OK, I don't need touch anyway. I hate trackpads. ;-)

    When I compare the drawing experience between Bamboo and Intous - boy, the Intuos are sooo much
    better!

    Of course, I don't know if it is still like that, as I have not bought an actual tablet in the recent time as my
    Intuos still works fine.

    Just want to tell you my experience.

    I bought a Wacom Cintique tablet computers some years ago, but that was a waste of money.
    Even though it has an i7 processor it is slow and I always fear to scratch the display - as I
    have a lot of scratches on the Intuos surface. I used the tablet 14 hours a day over years.
    And it can't be turned off completly. At least I could not manage that. If I use the shut down
    function on the Windows 8.1, it still needs power and the battery is empty 2 or 3 days later.
    So I always have to need to connect it to a powerline which sucks!

    Just my experience the the topic tablets and co.

    What I forgot - you can use your iPad as a tablet on a Mac, too.

    There is an app called Astropad
