zoo said:i just googled it and it doesn't look a whole lot different from the graphire
i use the graphire as a mouse replacement, though i alternate between pen and mouse these days to keep the RSI damage spread more thinly ..

For basic drawing I don't think you're going to find much difference. I believe that the Graphire support 1024 levels of pressure, the Intuous 2048, but in real life, I'm not sure if you'll see anything. I find the Graphire to be smooth with good sampling - I odn;t see how the Intuous could be that much of an improvement. The Intuous has tilt sensing, but only Painter takes advantage of this IIRC.
Intuous supports different tools (pen, mouse, CAD puck, airbrush) Graphire doesn't other than the pen and mouse. Intuous also has a bunch of hot-keys that can be programmed with software to make it easier to performs operations; Graphire has a roller input and two hot keys so you're more limited.
If you're only using the tablet for cursor control and drawing, I'd say go Graphire; if you want something that has more flexibility, the Inuous might be the better answer.
It is treated as a mouse by Windows, has three buttons (tip, two buttons on the barrel) so all the clicking operations are there. Most tablets allow for relative tracking which speeds up moving aroudn on the screen.stir-fry said:i'm interested in how one of these can be used as a mouse replacement.. any more information on that zoo, or others?
