1.Tablet’s size
Keep in mind that bigger is not always better. However most artists, and technical illustrators desire larger surface areas. Some people prefer smaller tablets to minimize arm motion. So it depends on you and the type of drawer you are.
How your tablet connects to your computer is another factor. USB interface is ideal since most computers support USB. Another option for connecting tablets to computers would be Bluetooth.
3.Pen/Stylus and Accessories
Make sure your tablet has a pen that is comfortable and easy to use. Check if the stylus requires a battery. A battery will require occasional replacement, and will make the pen heavier. Tablet pens can may be tethered or free. Try to find a tablet with a free pen that doesn’t require batteries.
the sensitivity to pressure on the tablet surface is another important factor. Most tablets available have 256, 512, or 1024 pressure levels. This controls the line thickness, transparency, or the color. The higher the pressure-sensitivity is, the more natural and responsive your tablet will be and the more control you’ll get.
