    Wacom Intous 4

    OLED displays, better sensitivity and heaps of coolness.

    Anyone wants to buy used Intous3?

    Although I'm loving my cheap and cheerful Bamboo (which is a great little tablet) these look very sexy indeed!

    I've been holding off on my Intuos tablet upgrade for over a year knowing that a new one must be behind the corner pretty soon. This looks so cool! I love the idea of the touch wheel. I can't wait to get my hands on one!

    Yeah these look pretty good, pity they make them so robust I still cant justify replacing the trusty old intuos 2 must be 6 or 7 years old now and it still works like a charm (and its deep purple!).

    Me too. Still rolling With my Intuos2. 3 didn't have anything worth upgrading for... 4, they finally got the hint that left handed people use them (me). Worth upgrading for now.

    Meh. I don't use any of the buttons on either the pen or the tablet anyway, in fact I removed the button from the pen.
    If I do upgrade from intuos 3 it'll be to a cintiq.

    We have a couple of Wacoms here, ranging from the wirless version to the Intuos 2 and 3.

    The wireless is complete and utter garbage, the pen almost always need to touch the surface of the tablet just to move a cursor, which sucks, as it almost always registers half your movements as mouse clicks.

    The Intuos series is amazing, there is just no substitude brand for a Wacom Intuos (and i have tried a lot of cheaper knock off, all of which where utter rubbish or the drivers where just not up to par.)

    I also see the Intuos 4 is cheaper than the previous version, but that might be because they seem to have shrunk a bit in size.
    Still, for 200 euros you can have a very good cute little Intuos tablet.

    You can choose handedness in Intous3 drivers. But you need 6x8 or larger as they have strips and keys on both sides.

    I'm also targeting Cintiq somewhere soon, but I think I'll wait for a while to see if they are going to make a new one now.

    I've found side keys quite useful and lately I've been using tablet not for sculpting and texturing but for character animation. Having keys set up for Move, Rotation and so on makes it much easier and faster.

    While I think it's nice, I don't see Intuous 4 being a reason to upgrade from 3.
    If there were more programmable buttons, I could see it, but as it is, the Intuous 3 has 8 and 2 touch strips. 4 is only a marginal improvement overall.
    It's appeal is more to prospective new Wacom owners than to current ones.

    Nice piece of hardware. Unfortunately, I can't justify to my wife buying another one

    I'm hoping there is a Cintiq update soon. Upgrade the 21" to a 24" etc.. I'd rather get a Cintiq these days then replace my Intous2 12x12 with a Intous4 as tempting as they are. (The Intous3's were not a big enough difference from the 2's, though I did notice a slight improvement in zbrush)

    So can anyone recommend a tablet for the extremely budget concisous? I'd like to have something to use for zbrush and photoshop and potentially CORE. I'd love to get an $800+ tablet but I shouldn't spend that kind of money right now.
