The new Wacom Intuos PRO tablet range

Despite the name change, Wacom have kindly not upped the price of their professional pen tablets with this release. They have, however, thrown in the wireless control kit as standard, and added a new ‘special edition’ which comes with an aluminium frame rather than the usual black.

Key features in the new Intuos PRO range include:

– 2048 levels of pen pressure sensitivity in both pen tip and eraser
– Over 60 levels of tilt recognition
– Multi-touch support
– Eight customisable, application-specific ExpressKeys (six on the smallest model)
– Touch ring with four customisable functions
– Radial menu
– Express View display
The range works for anyone on Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista SP3; Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later, using a Mac with an Intel processor.
So what’s happened to plain old Intuos?

Well, the non-PRO Intuos range now occupies the space that Bamboo tablets used to fill – these tablets are aimed at consumers, educational institutions who need to kit out a classroom on the cheap and hobbyists who are after that professional swish.

Smaller than their PRO counterparts (and with a special Manga version available for anyone who takes their dojinshi particularly seriously), they still manage to retain some fairly professional features, like those application-specific ExpressKeys, though you’ll have to purchase your wireless control kit separately. The Intuos range features:

– Pressure-sensitive pen and eraser (there’s no eraser on the smallest model)
–  Multi-touch support
– Four application-specific ExpressKeys
– Super-slim, comfortable, striking silver and black design
– Optional Wacom Wireless Accessory Kit
Again, these will work Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista SP3 or Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later, provided you’re on a Mac with an Intel processor.
