Computer for gaming and touch screen drawing

  awest3 17:08 07 Feb 2018

Hi, My granddaughter wants a computer for gaming and touch screen drawing. My budget is around £1000. She does a lot of drawing and at the moment uses an 5 year old laptop with an attached stylus and Pad. she would like to do her drawings directly onto a screen. I'm looking for a solution... Surface pro? laptop with touch screen? laptop with additional touch screen monitor? etc.. I think she would like to use it any place she is so that sort of rules out the monitor solution. I suppose by definition a gaming machine has to be fairly fast so probably something like an i5 processor. Any advice would be most welcome.

You make no mention of games or the internet. Just drawing.

A second user iPad, as big a screen as you can run to, would give her an entree into what Media Folk use and they usually have suitable software installed already

Hi Thanks for this, I think they've settled on either an HP Envoy (£999) or a Dell inspiron at £749, both 15.6". The envoy has an Nvidia card but apart from that they seem pretty similar. Thanks again
