    hehe yes it is just a bit different...way way more fun.

    When i went from first trying to draw with a mouse right handed(im a leftie for all real media) to a borrowed graphire i thought it was as good as it got and was neverendingly impressed............ and then i got an Intuos 3 of my own and it was worlds better again...and havent looked back ever

    Oooooo YAY

    I have purchased one of these but must wait till a friend in the US visits us early next year before I can enjoy it. Selby I have a similar story to yours...a borrowed graphire which is better than nothing but I am so exited that you all find the Intuos3 so much more.

    A question: Did you need to order extra nib/tips for the Intuos3? .. or did all the requirements come with the kit. I know spare nibs are available but am not sure if it is necessary for me to order anything extra.
    Thanks for your tips.

    Hi,

    the Intuos3 is shipping with a couple of nibs/tips - you donīt need to order anything extra. It all comes with the standard package. You will love it!

    I've not had that good experience with the Graphire. I'm not convinced Bluetooth can handle the data rates. Sometimes I get serious cursor lag or it just goes on a walkabout. I have to turn it off, wait, turn back on again. Hope.

    I'm sure one day I'll upgrade to Intuos 3, Cintiq is way outta my bracket.

    Have fun with it

    Selby, why is Intuos so much better than graphire? You say "it is worlds better". Is it just a matter of size, or what else?

    I have a graphire 3 (with USB cable) and it works rather well, but I've never had the opportunity to use an Intuos.

    Thank you Marco :wink:
    I am looking forward to it. Sometimes paying a bit more for something like a good tablet is a worthwhile investment. I paid even more than most because of our poor exchange rate, but I am greatly reasured by the positive feedback of those who have them.

    Lozeta, the graphire2 is the crappy one (and is now discontinued), and your graphire3 is probably much better than that. But I did a bit of research about the Intuos3 before I bought it and have never once seen a bad review :roll: , so I am hoping it will be masses better than what I have now.
