I was thinking of adding on to the other Wacom thread - but the more I got into it, the more it was becomming a hi-jack. SO - I'm sure NONE of you have EVER fielded THIS question before - Someone please humor me?... I look at the Intuos and the price and just shake my head - and I'm just a bit ticked that it comes with software (Adobe Elements) I'll never use - and wonder... Then I look at their new-ish $99 pad and pen - I hate to buy into and then move up, but I've never used a pad before and would be even more ticked should I not like the expensive pad. I've read the different specs on the pads - but in really using them, what does it mean? What will drive me to the nut house because that feature is missing on the "cheap" pad - and what is on the Intuos that is just a bell or whistle?
