quote:I would go with something different if you are using it for artwork. First off, if you get the FinePoint digitizer, you are stuck with the pen that came with the tablet. With Wacom technology, there are many different pens in many different weights available. Also, the Wacom digitizer supports eraser-pens. I used to have a Gateway M275 with Wacom and it was MUCH better in tablet mode than my M280. Pen accuracy doesn't seem to be as good as the Wacom either, and if you want a pen that lasts, the Finepoint isn't it as they have batteries which are not user replaceable once they die. One more thing - the Wacom pens = cheap. Finepoint special Gateway pens are upwards of $50 dollars and the batteries have an estimated lifetime of only 2-3 years!
Bottom line: Professional artists don't use Finepoint... they use Wacom.
