Tablet or Touchscreen device

Hi, I'm just starting to learn digital art and animation and don't have any gear... Except for my HP Spectre x360. And my question is, do I need to buy a tablet for around $50 or an HP Pen for around the same price to use on my touchscreen laptop? If anyone have compared these two ways or have used HP Pen + touchscreen, I'll be glad to hear from you soon 🙂

Hi there!!!

I would suggest buying tablet, as far as I remember the pressure sensitivity is better in drawing tablet (depends on what kind of tablet actually)

And I saw my friend use that hp pen thing, and it just heats up really fast

But if you want more portability I think the hp pen is better

So yes, it all comes back to your personal choice
