Ok so im not some rich kid, but i want at least a good and portable pc tablet that is still cheap around 300 us dollars and down. but are still good enough for nowadays.Me my self amd looking at toshiba m200 as a possibility. could you guys please enlighten me. as My family is moving to montana.(so i hope to go outside. i would also like something portable as my other laptop is too big and i would have to use my bamboo fun small tablet which wouldnt really work.
Any other suggestions!!!
If $300 is the most you are willing to spend, (and a tablet is absolutely vital), then the M200 looks like a safe bet. Keep in mind that the processor and ram are horribly outdated though. Be sure to upgrade the RAM to the maximum supported through a separate online vendor (perhaps crucial.com). Because the M200 supports a max of 2 Gigs of RAM (DDR RAM mind you - modern computers run on DDR3) the ram upgrade shouldn't cost too much. Just make sure the ram you buy is compatible before you buy.
Be sure to check out some online reviews of the M200 to see if the screen is even viewable in direct sunlight. Make sure the portability is something you really want and will use often. Many times a sketchbook is more than enough for on-the-field drawing.
If you're really willing to pay for it, I believe HP recently made a tablet PC with half decent specs, wacom digitizer, and around $1200.
Whichever route you take, make sure the tablet has a built in active digitizer (ideally wacom digitizer). You'll need it for any pressure sensitivity.
