wacom intuosThe Intuos line has been expanded.

A refresh suited for the hobbyist, student and the professional – see Draw, Art and Comic, Wacom’s newly modernized and styled graphics tablets.

In the way of features, it’s more like a refinement of looks, rather than features. This set of tablets has been noted to have a little bit of cheap plastic feel to it.  They appear to have almost the same features*, except the software differs.

FAIR WARNING

  • When registering online there have been issues with the system at Wacom not reporting back whether it was completed online or not.
  • If you’re going to consider this tablet, take some time to read the second, third and fourth pages of reviews on Amazon, as the first page seems like marketing by Wacom Technology.
  • If you have any issues with lines not drawing correctly, note that Wacom Technology should replace the tablet for you. Windows should automatically pick up the tablet when you hook up via USB, but you should always install the drivers – they’re intended to make the tablet work best.

Notable Differences

  • *Multi-touch is available in the Intuos Art, but not the Intuos Draw.
  • Art also comes with Corel Painter Essentials so you can start creating right away.
  • The others follow suit: Comic comes with Anime Studio Debut and Clip Studio Paint Pro.
