SOLVED: What is the Difference Between Wacom Intuos Products

wacom-pen-tablets-differencesIf you spend time on Wacom pen tablets you will see the Intuos line is quite broad.  We found it quite confusing.

Below is a simple explanation of differences between the various Wacom Intuos products starting from the top of the line and moving down to the bottom of the line:

Wacom Intuos Pro:

The Wacom ‘professional line’ is larger and has more sensitivity in the pen / stylus

  • Intuos Pro S = 12.6″ x 8.2″- 2048 pressure levels in the pen
  • Intuos Pro M = 13.2″ x 8.5″ – 8192 pressure levels in the pen
  • Intuos Pro L = 16.8″ x 11.2″ – 8192 pressure levels in the pen

The PAPER editions are the same as Wacom Intuos Pro but adds a paper clip at the top for you to actually draw on:

  • Intuos Pro Paper M = 13.2″ x 8.5″ – 8192 pressure levels in the pen
  • Intuos Pro Paper L = 16.8″ x 11.2″ – 8192 pressure levels in the pen

Wacom Intuos Art, Photo, Comic, 3D:

The real difference between these products is the software they come with.  All of these products will take input from your finger OR the pen stylus.  The finger / touch input can be disabled with a switch.

This is the base Intuos product and only supports input from the pen / stylus.
