I see that some online Mac retailers are starting to close out the Intuos3 Wacom tablets and was possible interested. I've never used a tablet before, but I am interested in finding out if it can be used for one specific purpose: I am making scans of some antique paperwork, which I need to "clean up" in Photoshop. Generally I am able to use the magic wand tool to select and copy individual design elements from a vintage graphic. However, many time this is not immediately possible so I first need to remove (or draw over) individual pixels with the pen tool; or remove areas with the lasso or area select tool; so the magic wand will properly select the area I want. 1. Is the Wacom tablet going to let me do this faster than a mouse? 2. The tablet comes with a mouse - so can I still use my Apple mouse for other computer work without having to constantly uplug and plug it in (my big hands love using the large Apple hockey mice). 3. Any advantages in buying a bigger tablet other than more work space. I see that an old article on About.com mentioned that some of the tablets can be used for tracing artwork by placing the artwork under a special clear tray on top of the tablet (?). 4. Recommended Accessories? I see Amazon offers a kit of extra pen tips and such, and a air brush pen (don't see much use for an airbrush pen as photoshop has a tool for this ?). I am not too concerned with this model having older bundled software as most of my Macs with dual screens are older.
