I have used a drawing tablet before in order to draw stuff onto Photoshop, but I did find it quite awkward and strange looking at my monitor, while paying no attention to the tablet itself. I mean, when drawing on a piece of paper, most would focus on the paper and their hand, rather than looking elsewhere.
So my question itself is... How does the Surface Tablet rack up against a drawing tablet monitor (the expensive kind with a screen that you directly draw on top of).
As far as my research is concerned, a drawing tablet with a built in monitor will cost me easily over £1000, where as a Surface Pro 2 about £800 or less! The later of which with the added functionality of being able to run all kinds of software. Over all though, what I'm purely interested in is how well can the Microsoft Surface be used as a drawing tablet, especially compared to a drawing tablet monitor.
