    Microsoft Surface Pro, starting at $883 and the top model is now under a grand, I think that's pretty good value!

    The link on JB Hi-Fi's website list it as:

    iPad - Android

    yet only has Windows Surface machines. I think tablets are far over priced for what they are, you can get a laptop almost as small and the same specs... with a bigger HDD for 1/3 the price of pretty much all but the cheapest Android tablets.

    Yeah but squeezing a normal sized laptop in to a tablet is going to be expensive, and the Surface has all of the normal Wacom tablet functions so you have left right click and an eraser on the stylus and they are pressure sensitive so they are great for drawing.

    Also I think to get an Apple iPad to have a decent touch interface you have to use Bluetooth with something like this, so then you have an extra $100 on the purchase cost and a battery to charge-

    Wacom today debuted its Intuos Creative Stylus (via Engadget), which uses Bluetooth 4.0, integrated shortcut buttons, and 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity to create "a realistic pen-on-paper feel" when drawing on an iPad. It's designed for sketching, drawing, and painting and aims to deliver "professional-grade performance" to iPad users.
