    I was wondering is it was possible to get the entire surface pro 3 review up? I have tired on 3 different devices to read it, however on all 3, the review ends mid word what seems to be very early on without a bulk of the information. I am strongly considering this computer for my art and work needs and find the reviews on your site very helpful. Thank you

      Thank you. I have fixed it, sorry about that and thanks for bringing it to my attention!

      Yes, here is a link to Huion’s post about it, which has a download for the updated driver.

      Thanks! Yes, you can draw on it. The digitizer is Synaptics and not as accurate as Wacom and N-trig–doesn’t mean it will be way off, but means you may get some wobbly lines or skips with certain strokes or speeds. But it’s fine for sketching and note-taking.

    Thanks for all the useful info, the site is one of the few places to find accurate details, and help for drawing digitally.

    I have a question regarding a laptop spec machine that I could draw directly on to.

    I work as a designer and use autocad, revit, sketchup and a variety of other 3d software daily. More for recreation I use photoshop for digital art work. Ideally I would like a large-ish screen (14″). This means a min spec of i5/7, 8/12gb ram, ssd, dedicated graphics

    I am looking for a machine that could manage all of this, and after a lot of looking the new surface book pro seems to be the only real option (other than a surface 4, and separate monitor for 3d work). I had accepted the cost of this to have one single machine, but as I live in the UK it seems the surface book will not be available for many months, and numerous spec surfaces are still not out here.

    The only alternative that I have seen would be the lenovo thinkpad yoga http://shop.lenovo.com/gb/en/laptops/thinkpad/yoga-series/yoga-14/
    But there seems to be incredibly little information on it’s use with a digitzer pen / stylus, palm rejection etc from the manufacturer.

    It seems odd to me that only the surface actively markets its use as a drawing/ natural stylus interface product

    Could you help, with any greater detail on the Lenovo or offer any alternatives ? Any hep would really be appreciated

      Hi, yes, there’s our review here with links to the correct pen. I don’t know of others currently being made that are that large unless you got a separate tablet monitor. Used, there are the Sony Vaio Flip 15A, which is 15.5″, and the Sony Vaio Flip 14A. Those are both N-trig, like the Surface Book. I agree about Microsoft doing a much better job marketing the drawing features.

    Any chance we can see a review of the new HP Spectre 15″? Fully loaded, it looks like a beast.

      OK… I don’t do a lot of Synaptics tablets but why not. Keep on the lookout.

          If you’re the person who wrote about the Toshiba Z20T, yes, it does have a Wacom EMR digitizer.

    I am looking for an artists computer that also will run office and the adobe suite
    the new skylake CPU’s with iris pro 580 sound the business (but they have only just started shipping 6350HQ, 6770HQ, 6870HQ or 6970HQ Jan 2016)
    8GB RAM and 256GB SSD and importantly a responsive pen
    So far have tried the some new computers and ruled out NTrig for the moment
    Looking at Wacom EMR’s
    Companion 2 has noise, short battery life, expensive and excellent for drawing
    The Toshiba Z20T not as expensive as the companion, excellent battery life, no noise, it might be good but it seems rare and no one is reviewing from a drawing perspective?

      Hi, the Toshiba Z20T has a Core M processor, which is not powerful enough for heavy use of the Adobe Suite. You would need a Core i7 or at least an i5 to get much done. You might check out a Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga. The 2-in-1 (2nd-gen. ThinkPad Yoga 12) has EMR. The Yoga 14 has discrete graphics and Wacom ES.

      Hi, I’d like to review it at some point, but to get back to you sooner, I asked Monoprice via chat and they said the Linux files can be downloaded (the person did not know from where) but that Monoprice doesn’t provide support for Linux and they don’t recommend using it. The Digimend site here doesn’t seem to have drivers for that model. If you want to dig further, maybe ask someone at Digimend or Sourceforge.

        In case anyone else is looking for info on this.

        I asked specifically (MonoPrice chat ) if the 22″ drawing tablet #14481 used uc-logic and they said it uses huion which Digimend seems to support on Linux (Krita does too BTW).

        Where could we find that information in the documentation? MP’s reply was literally “its internal.” I also asked about using other pens/styluses and they said they do not offer replacements and they aren’t sure how it connects (I asked if it was bluetooth).

        If you look at the MP 22″ manual, the pen looks extremely similar to the Parblo Coast 22 21.5″ LED HD Monitor Art Graphic Drawing Tablet.

        In fact, the ports on the latter (except the DVI has been changed to HDMI on the former), vents and stand mechanism are practically identical to the images at Monoprice. A user comment Justin Kupka, Spokane, WA 6/21/2016 seems to also make the connection. Compare: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Parblo-Coast22-21-5-LCD-HD-Monitor-Art-Graphic-Drawing-Tablet-With-Battery-free-Pen-Rich/423270_32621829771.html vs https://www.monoprice.com/product?pg_no2=3&c_id=108&cp_id=10841&cs_id=1084101&p_id=14481.

        I will try to grab this item by Dec 2016 after my PC build and report back. Maybe someone else will try it on Linux before then.

          Thanks for the info. I didn’t see that specific model on Digimend, but there are some other Huion tablets. Monoprice using Huion drivers doesn’t mean there is a Linux driver for that tablet (not sure what you found, if you send a link I can look at it). It’s unlikely Monoprice would put it in the documentation since they don’t have control over what the Linux developers do and don’t offer support. Some tablets are rebranded versions of other tablets.

    I just bought the monoprice 22 inch battery free own display. I only use Linux…. So we will see when it arrives. If it doesn’t work, I’ll look into any possible Pablo driver workarounds.

      You can check here https://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxwacom/ and at github. Not sure which tablet your question is referring to.

        Sorry, I was under the impression that the whole thread was about the Monoprice 22inch tablet. That’s what I was searching for when this forum came up in the results.

          Oh OK. I did once ask Monoprice about this and they said the drivers can be downloaded, but didn’t say from where, but they don’t support them. I just remembered that a developer left a comment with this link to help those who want yo use Linux http://wenhsinjen.github.io/ptxconf/ so you can try there.

          When I open and reply to the comments I see them in the dashboard in the order they get posted, and they go with different pages, so I don’t always see the threads, sorry.

            No worries. I should have been more specific myself since this obviously isn’t just a monoprice or linux forum.

            Anyway, I had to wait on a video adapter before I could really get started, so I’m only just now testing things out. Haven’t gotten anything useful out of the digimend driver so far, but then, Linux drivers always seem to need a little more attention to get settled in the first place. I’ll check out this other link too… and if I manage to get it running without resorting to WINE or my Win7 harddrive. I’ll try to remember to come back and drop a line about it. And thanks for the help so far.
