From the Manufacturer
Intuos3 gives you the power to quickly and professionally edit photos and create digital artwork by turning on the full power of Adobe Photoshop, Corel Painter, and over 100 other leading software applications. Intuos3 tablets now put ExpressKeys and Touch Strips right at your fingertips for convenient keyboard shortcuts, scrolling, zooming, brush size control, and more. And if you’re using a widescreen display or multiple monitors, the new Intuos3 6×11 and 12×19 are designed just for you.
Wacom’s pen-abled technology gives you the natural feel and superior performance of Wacom’s patented cordless and battery-free tablet technology. You’ll find that using an Intuos pen, mouse, and tablet gives you more control, comfort, and productivity. Alternating between the comfortable Grip Pen and the ergonomic five-button Intuos3 mouse reduces repetitive motion. It’s an easy and natural way to work.
Using a pen tablet is easy
It’s easy to use a pen tablet because every point on the tablet has a matching point on the screen. When you move your pen over the tablet the cursor moves in precisely the same way on the screen. Where you touch your pen tip to the tablet is where you click.
The Intuos3 Grip Pen gives you the power of pressure-sensitive control. Pressure sensitivity lets you control your software tools by changing how hard you press the pen tip to the tablet surface. Using pressure sensitivity you can dynamically control things like brush size, opacity, and more.

Review by customer:
I thought that the tablet might be useless, b/c I thought it might be hard to draw w/o ink coming onto the tablet, so that I could see what I was doing, but magically, looking at the screen while you draw is JUST as easy! Finally, there’s a way for people to use technology to their advantage w/o having to worry about their drawings coming out weird when done with a mouse. And if you make mistakes, there’s no eraser marks, you can add special effects, and there are layers. If you draw something amazing, but find that it’s not in the right place or it’s not the right size, on the computer, that can easily be fixed w/o having to erase anything. Get this tablet, b/c it works way better than you think.
