XP-PEN StarG640 6x4 Inch Ultrathin Tablet Drawing Tablet Digital Graphics Tablet with 8192 Levels Battery-Free Stylus Compatible with Chromebook-Rev B (for Drawing and E-Learning/Online Classes)

by XP-PEN
What We like

This drawing tablet replaces a mouse and works great for artists who need a graphic tablet. It is very thin, lightweight, and ergonomically designed. The buttons are smooth and have a substantial feel. The pen is magnetically connected and retracts when removing the device from the tablet. The pen is excellent quality and it didn't break when we accidentally dropped it. It responds well and glides through the lines. The USB port on the side of the device plugs right into the Chromebook. The stylus is battery-free, which is great. The extra nibs are really great, and it saves having to replace the entire stylus. The tablet is very light and durable.
