The Wacom Intuos Art Pen and Touch is a digital graphics, drawing and painting tablet released by Wacom in 2015. It was praised for its thin and light design, as well as its smooth drawing surface. Users loved how easy the driver installation is, both from the installation disc provided and from an online download. Usability was also praised as being friendly and involving. Criticism was raised over the pen, whose surface being only hard plastic provides little grip and will tend to slip off your fingers as you work. Opening the back cover is also a bit of a hassle. Nonetheless, the Wacom Intuos Art offers excellent drawing experience at a fair price.
