    the macbook air is not a touchescreen device.

    Wacom is a really good brand for graphic design tablets, and you can use these to draw diagrams or sketches in Photoshop with Pen-Pressure. Software for the tablets are also customisable, so you can set bindings to the pen buttons and change sensitivity (for pen pressure too).

    The INTUOS

    If you aren't afraid of sparring more money, you can get their other range which has a built in display: http://www.wacom.com/products/pen-displays

    The CINTIQ

    But if you want an affordable version with pen pressure and does everything you need it to do (just draw diagrams), then the BAMBOO is a good option, as it's only around $50.

    Any softwares recommended for doing wireframes using the stylus on macbook air?
    Basically i like to draw some rough wireframes with my stylus and save them later for reference.

    Sorry for late replies, if you want something neat I'd recommend flair builder. But if you want to draw the wife frames then something like indesign or photoshop would be the best bet. ^^
