I am researching active stylus touchscreen options and think I have a comprehensive list: Wacom, Apple Pencil, Dell Canvas, Microsoft Surface. Are there any that I'm missing?

Although I'm not exactly a graphic designer, my job requires me to draw most of the day (think CAD, hand drawn maps and cross sections). In light of my industry not currently using touchscreens, I am curious if there is a preferred touchscreen for drawing among graphic designers?

I was looking for an active stylus touchscreen with excellent palm rejection, pin point accuracy, large size ~35", stand-alone monitor (no attached tablet-computer) with cost almost a non-issue. The Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 seems to be the best option but perhaps I've missed something?

Thanks in advance for any help!

  • Why do you need it to be a touchscreen? At least in the past, most people who use drawing tablets haven't really cared about touch features... unless they are like super into finger painting. The only real upside I can think of is rotating the canvas with your fingers, but for years people have been doing that via shortcuts or like pressing a button in the pen and using the pen itself to rotate the canvas. That said... You can't really go wrong with Cintiq... especially if the price tag doesn't really matter. – Joonas Mar 27 '18 at 7:46

    Honestly if you do precision work (as it is CAD drawing) the last thing you'd need would be a touchscreen. Unless you are into finger painting in your spare time. – Luciano Mar 27 '18 at 8:13

    I think this is a bit too opinion based for the site, but..... emphasizing @joonas ' comment.. ... You can't really go wrong with Cintiq..... – Scott Mar 27 '18 at 9:08
  • Huion has some really nice options for the pen/monitor and drawing tablet options. And they are pretty well priced. Might be an option if you're not looking for the highest end tablet available. – GoofyMonkey Mar 27 '18 at 14:44
