What's a good and (relatively) cheap tablet PC for Krita?

I don't know if this is the place to ask these things. So I apologize in advance.

I have been thinking about buying a tablet pc but Surface Pro 2/3 seem kind of expensive to me right now.
Do you know any alternative with pressure sensitivity?

Thanks.

Hm... I thought a Helix would be cheaper by now, but it's just as expensive, and honestly, probably not as good as the Surface Pro 3 -- unless you want to run linux. I think the n-trig pen on the Surface Pro 3 isn't supported at all under Linux. The Asus Vivotab is cheap, but not that fast: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBteLqOdNBQ

Something like an Asus ep121 should be enough to run krita decently. (The intel hd gpu supports opengl 2.1 if I remember correctly, but I don't know what opengl needs krita to work properly)
You can find several used on ebay at surprisingly quite a low price.

Hmmm, those seem like good options, altough the vivotab's performance really looks like a netbook's one comparing the video with my experience in one.

I do have another question. So I don't open another thread :v the current version of Krita doesn't let me enable OpenGL, but other versions did! Why is that?

Edit: Nevermind, it seems it fixed itself with a re-install.
