Hey, came from your username in an AskReddit thread like the thirsty hoe I am but I really hope this can help. I’d recommend a separate cintiq-style drawing tablet that attaches to the laptop- such as this along with a Helios 300 ~~(i7 7700HQ, GTX 1060, 16gb RAM and a 1TB HDD with a 256gb boot drive. These are available on Amazon for $1050 IIRC)~~ I read your post again, and this laptop is mostly plastic so not what you’re looking for. Alternatively, there are Dell laptops around that price point, maybe a little higher, with similar specs and better build quality, but I’m not sure about which are aluminium.

There are size/portability tradeoffs with this, but there isn’t really anything in your price range with the 1060 and a touchscreen so this is as close as it gets. You may be pleased to know that a tablet like this with a proper pen will be way better to use for drawing compared to a finger or soft tipped stylus, though, and that you should be able to use the tablet as a secondary monitor at home.

No worries! I’m very grateful for the input. I do not know what programs she’d be using, but she has this drawing tablet at her disposal-

As far as gaming, I know she likes TF2, The Sims, those kind of games. I’m not in her life, my daughter will only be 2 in January and there’s a lot of drama brought about by the mother. My daughter’s sister’s father and I are technical by trade but by no means computer savvy. I’m hoping to help her father provide an environment in which his daughter can develop interests plainly visible, but which her mother, unfortunately, is not encouraging.

I dug around and looked at reviews and stuff and went with an XP-Pen Artist 15.6 tablet since (for the price) it was compared favorably against the Cintiq.

I talked about it with him yesterday a while and he seemed to think he’d really use it. And it looks like I could hook it up to my laptop so he wouldn’t have to be stuck at the computer with it.

If he doesn’t use it, I may mess around with it since I like to doodle now and again. And am thinking of making a simple pixel art video game. Who knows.

Thanks again for taking the time to chat about all of this!

XP-Pens are very good quality, with a drawing experience almost comparable to Wacom (the industry leader for drawing tablets). They have a St. Patrick’s Day sale going on right now on their website, and these items are within your budget:

On Amazon, there’s the XP-Pen Artist 15.6 non-pro display tablet that’s just slightly over your budget, if you apply the coupon.

Huion is another reputable company. On Amazon, pretty much all the Kamvas 12 and Kamvas 13 tablets will cost you less than $350 (both the pro and non-pro editions), as long as you apply the coupons for some of them.

When it comes to screens, generally-speaking, bigger is better. 16″ are really generous, especially if you’re drawing for long periods of time – but 13″ can work too, and plus, they’re more portable. A lot of it boils down to personal preference.
