so i'm studying digital painting and i need to use a pen or a stylus often
i bought acer's aspire r14 which supports using a pen or a stylus but i really don't know which one works better
so if you have any idea please help
Go on Amazon.com and search for active stylus. I would look at the ones with the most reviews and the highest 5 star ratings percentage.
Read the reviews from the people who purchased and used them.
Anything else is just an opinion from one person or two.
The R14, from everything I have found/can find about it ... including ownership, is that it does not support active/pressure sensitive/Wacom-style pens. The best you will get is the passive rubber tipped stylus that's little more than a thin finger. To get the kind of active digitizer you'd want for on-screen artwork, you're going to be looking at something like a Surface Pro/Surface Book with the Surface Pen. It's fantastic, but you'll be paying three times the price too.
I'm still using my Ugee M708 graphics tablet for artwork with the R14. It works just fine ... just doesn't give that Cintiq style on-screen drawing it sounds like you're looking for.
If you can find a pressure-sensitive pen that works with ANY touch screen computer, please share a link to it! I'd love to get my hands on that myself.
I was going by this:
That's the panel type, which is different than the digitizer. There are still very few systems available that have a Wacom-style active digitizer for use with a stylus. All of them that I've been able to find are high-end, and expensive.
Because it's still relatively uncommon tech, it's also relatively pricey. That's why the Cintiq displays are so pricey vs. a standard touch screen monitor. Easy mistake to make!
I know nothing about stylus or pens for a notebook. I've never even used one.
What did you all agree is the correct type for an R3-471T ???
I don't know if it matters but the R5-471T uses an IPS panel that I don't think is the same as what R3-471T uses.
Does it take "Active" or "non-active"? I noticed Acer-Justin said the R3-131T uses a non-active. And I never understood why.
Again, I'm completely clueless about what type it would take. Active? Or non-active?
"the R3-131T uses a non-active. And I never understood why." My guess would be cost. The R3-131T is a pretty inexpensive laptop.It has a "poor TN display". "Active matrix is a lot more expensive, and because of manufacturing issues, is also typically in short supply".
Active-matrix display :An active-matrix display, also known as a TFT (thin-film transistor) display, uses a separate transistor to apply charges to each liquid crystal cell and thus displays high-quality color that is viewable from all angles.Passive-matrix display :A passive-matrix display uses fewer transistors, requires less power, and is less expensive than an active-matrix display. The color on a passive-matrix display often is not as bright as an active-matrix display. Users view images on a passive-matrix display best when working directly in front of it.
