    Hey I’m only 11yrs old I’m on a tight budget of 50$ I was wondering what would be a good starter????

      Hello Justine,
      For starters who are looking for a drawing tablet to hone their skills, I would recommend buying the XP-Pen Deco 01 which is probably the best budget drawing tablet in terms of features and pressure sensitivity. You just need to connect it with your PC or laptop and you’re good to go.

    Hi Mike,
    Would there be any way to confirm which of the tablets you recommend are still compatible with Mac OS 10.6? Thanks!

    1. Mike says:

      Hello Mitch,
      You are running on a quite old version of Mac OS now. However, we have two tablets on our list which are compatible with Mac OS 10.6 and above. The one is Ugee M708 and another one is Wacom Bamboo CTL471. Both will work with your version of Mac OS seamlessly.

    I am looking for writing tablet that I can use for presentation, teaching online etc running on macos. Do you have any recommendations? Thanks

      Hello Teo,

      You mean iOS by MacOS, right? You can get iPad Pro 10.5 or iPad 2017 Model. As you mentioned you need it for writing, you can connect Apple Smart keyboard or any third-party keyboard for writing. For drawing, you can get the Apple Pencil to draw directly on the screen which also has the ability to detect pressure sensitivity. Moreover, there are a number of apps available on App Store which can help you to make your presentation even more effective.

        Hi Mike, thanks for your reply. I mean macOS running on macbook. I have the requirements to do presentation online like webinar. As I speak, I may need to draw on some kind of virtual whiteboard where my audience can see them.

    I’ve never bought a drawing tablet before, however have always been into digital art, my budget is tight, as I’m only 16 years old, but can be flexible so probably anything under 100 would be great.
    Due to many mixed opinions, I’m not quite sure what to buy as a starter, do you think you could help, thank you

    1. Mike says:

      Hello Joshua,
      I would recommend the Wacom Intuos Draw to anyone who is just starting with digital art. It’s an entry-level $80 drawing tablet which has got all the necessary features that you would need at the beginning. Go with it!

    Great article, used it to aid in my buying decision this Christmas. Sadly the WACOM website was absolutely crushed on Christmas day and the drivers along with the registration mandated software are unavailable. Makes me wonder if the tablet is worth keeping since they can’t seem to get web design and architecture done right. It sure destroyed the hopes of the recip9ient, left a decidedly bad impression on day one.
