Wacom Drawing Tablets to Meet All Budgets

January 25, 2017

If you are working with artwork or photos on your computer, you should be using a graphics tablet. It is a far more natural way to interact with your computer when compared with a house. Best of all, you can use a tablet and mouse at the same time. I’ve got both connected to my computer. My tablet is used 99% of the time with occasional use of the mouse for more basic tasks.

While there are multiple manufacturers of tablets, there is one name that stands far above all the rest and that is Wacom. Yes, I’ll have affiliate links below for which I get a small commission from Amazon if you purchase something.

Those of you who are new to tablets or want to keep things to a tight budget will likely want to look at the Wacom Intuos Draw, shown below. It has pressure sensitivity and more features than most of you would use. Total size is 8.25 inches wide by 6.7 inches tall.

If you want the best and your budget allows you to pay more, then you’ll want the Wacom Intuos Pro, shown below. It has a lot more levels of pressure sensitivity and provides a larger drawing area.

One of the great things about tablets is that they have a long lifespan. I’m still using a tablet that I’ve had for more than a decade. Users new to tablets need to give a few days to adjust as they work on absolute positioning. Mice work on relative positioning so I often see users picking up the pen as they would with a mouse. Once you’ve made the adjustment, you can easily go back and forth between the two with great results.
