Entire nice laptop for 2/3rds of the price of a 4090.
Since I started working from home, I have been using my old laptop more often instead of being on my computer, playing a few games (streamed from my main PC or PS5), watching football games, etc. The surface pro looks like it would be great for this. I started doing some more graphic design as a hobby. Nothing very intensive, but I noticed the surface pro has a stylus. does anyone use that for drawing in a program like inkspace?
