    I can't decide between the Wacom Graphire Bluetooth 6x8 Tablet or the Wacom Intuos3 6X8 USB Tablet.

    Anyone have any suggestions on which one is better or should buy?

    Thanks,

    Michael

    The Intuos has better resolution, more levels of pressure sensitivity, and can tell if you are holding your pen at an angle.

    The Graphires are perfectly good tablets, just less capable (and their pens feel like cheap Bic Clics). But you can definitely be productive with them!

    If you aren't desperately in love with the idea of cordless, get the Intuos.

    I second the Intuos. More pressure sensitive and more options for settings. I have the 4x5 that goes with me in my backpack as well as the larger 9x12 at work. I've been using tablets for years and can attest to them truly changing the way you work. I couldn't even begin to draw or path using a mouse now.

    I have the bluetooth and use it everyday. I use it for general use but if you need more from your tablet, get the Intuos.

    I would definitely go with the Intuos. Unless you're desperate for wireless, there's no reason to get the Bluetooth tablet. The Graphire series are great tablets (I use a 4x5) but the Intuos would be a better investment if you have the money for it.

    Ok, thanks everyone one. Looks like I will be ordering the Intuos 6X8 tablet.
