I'm used to being able to quickly draw diagrams etc. on a whiteboard at work during discussions with colleagues, and now that I'm working from home I want to find a device to use as a virtual whiteboard while on calls.


Does anyone have experience/recommendations for a device with a good pen that's comfortable to use and is easy to draw diagrams, flow charts etc?  Which (Windows) software do you use?  I've been wondering about a Surface Pro/Book or perhaps a Wacom Cintiq.  Are the non-display Wacom tablets intuitive to learn how to use for this non-artistic type of work (looking at the monitor while drawing with the pen on a tablet)?


Does anyone have a device for sale?

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 260 I could possibly be convinced to sell


Core i5-6200U
500GB Samsung 860 Evo SATA M.2 SSD
12.5" 1080p 10-point touch screen with 360 degree hinge


I have replaced the Wi-Fi card with an Intel AX200 802.11ax + BT5.1 card


Carbon composite body so it's super sturdy, backlit keyboard for night use etc


Has an active Wacom pen that is stored in the side of the laptop and charges while in there



I'd probably let it go for around $650

Also, on the software side of things, the Whiteboard built into Windows 10 supports collaboration and is super easy to use, hit Win+W and click the Whiteboard button in the bottom right of your main screen

Hi SEEN - thanks for the offer on the ThinkPad, but after some more searching I've managed to find a used Cintiq that I can connect to on my existing workstation.


It's nice that the whiteboard software is built in to Windows (it started automatically installing when I followed your instructions of Win+W then clicking on it).
