    Intuos vs. Graphire feedback

    Hello. So I'm finally getting off my ass and switching from forum lurker to poster. Yay me.

    So the way things are, I've owned an Intuos for several years now, and I've been completely happy with it. The problem is that I'm starting college in the fall, cross-country, and I'm looking to purchase a smaller-sized tablet (6x8 preference) to take with me. I've been focusing on my drawing skills lately away from the computer, but I do want to pick up the pen and do digital work and paintings now and again to keep in fresh and for practice's sake.

    So my question revolves around whether or not I really need an Intuos, or if the Graphire of the same size is capable of performing well for all the same needs. I've compared the tablets based on Wacom's listed details, and of course the Intuos seems better, but I'd really prefer some user feedback for this one. For people using Graphire, or who have used Graphire, do you feel particularly limited by it at all, or do you find it can easily do what you want (in terms of painting and drawing)?

    Yes, it's a matter of price range. I can afford both, but I'd prefer the cheaper assuming it can do what I want.

    Thanks in advance.

    As for my experience Intuos provide a better feeling when drawing than a intuos. But of course, you can end up with around the same result with a intuos.

    Is really a question of ''feeling'', I just feel the Intuos is much much smoother than the Intuos. And If I was in your pants, I'd get the Intuos or try to bring the one you already have.

    It all depends if you use the express keys and the tilt function. The price difference is huge I'm not sure the performance difference is that huge, especially if you keep your intuos and just want the secondary tablet to lug around. Maybe you could try to find someone with an intuos to give it a try?
