Default Which tablet?

I'm currently speccing a new Mac, and am considering replacing my old Wacom tablet. The one I have is a Wacom Intuos and has to be six or seven years old.

Does anyone here have any experience with the Graphire Bluetooth?

And if they can do Bluetooth for the Graphire, I'm wondering why they don't have a Bluetooth Intuos...

Hopefully Cristen will pop in and reply but I know she just recently bought a Graphire to replace her cat threw up on it and fried the guts Intuos ('-}}) and while I dont' think she got the bluetooth model, she said the Graphire was a bit flimsy...

The Graphire will give you half the number of pressure sensitivity levels. It will also rule out using the 6D pen that works with the Intuos3.

Hmm, it sounds as if it will be more powerful than my elderly Intuos.

Half the levels of pressure and fewer pen options. How is that more powerful?

My elderly Intuos (six years old or so) has far fewer options than the current Intuos3 – and fewer than the Graphire4 bluetooth I'm enquiring about.
