Hello, Tom's Hardware People,
I'm currently in the market looking for a laptop (or possibly tablet) for "on the go" drawing/sketching, as I've found myself traveling around more these days.

First off, the purpose, (what's the laptop being used for):

I'm mainly using it for programmes like Clip Studio Paint and Photoshop
However keep in mind, I'm not going to be work with RAW files or 8K textures, I'm talking classic paintbrush and some layer options

I won't be doing any hardcore gaming or intense 3D graphics work on it.

Secondly to watch videos on (yeah I know it's not exactly a big ask)

I would preferably like a Laptop with Windows 10, rather than an Android Tablet but however, I still welcome these recommendations too!

Next up Budget:
I would like to keep it under £500 possibly (but I feel like this price might be a pipe dream)

so sort of willing to stretch a little if it means a quality product


So far I've looked through various threads recommending a few Lenovo Yoga Laptops
but their quite pricey and seem "overkill"

Recently looking into the Windows Surface "Go", while a great price a few reviews have said it gets a little sluggish on some programmes and some devices get performance drops upon light multitasking

What I've currently looked at:

The Windows Surface (Standard), however a little concerned on overheating due to it being a fanless system

Lenovo YogaBook (10.1 with Windows 10) but after reading reviews some users say it suffers to overheating (Which is weird, because I've heard Lenovo as a company, usually factors in cooling when designing products)

So any recommendations?
Also, the laptop doesn’t have to be specific “pen draws on screen”
As I have a USB Wacom tablet!

Thanks for your help - Skar
