I am wanting to do some basic drawing with Adobe Illustrator using a touchscreen stylus. I was looking at an answer to a different question, and Ben Richards had made mention that laptops that support digitizer (possibly wrong terminology) technology is superior. I tried a quick search to see if my model supports that, but I couldn't find anything. How can I find out if my laptop supports this technology? Thanks a bunch!


The odds are if it had a digitizer-type touchscreen it would have came with a very nice stylus, been in all the print material, and cost you more. ;)

Easiest/cheapest test: Buy (or make) a cheap capacitive stylus made for the iPad and alike. If it works, you don't have a digitizer.
