Wacom Intuos3 4x6 Tablet
Most tablet input devices are designed to parallel as much of the existing screen area as possible. Those who would rather free up desk space or focus on retouching work will likely appreciate the new Wacom Intuos3 4x6 tablet. While much smaller than earlier Intuos3 models, it shares the same resolution of 5080 lines per inch and includes their important features. The included pen is battery-free and registers up to 1024 levels of pressure. There are also 4 programmable ExpressKeys and a touch-sensitive scroll strip for panning or zooming in images. Wacom's new model also includes a collection of software to help new artists get started, including Photoshop Elements 4 and Corel Painter Essentials 3. Available today, the 4x6 model works with either MacOS X Jaguar or Windows 2000/XP and ships for $229.
