Don't bother with the touch feature. It's pointless. I wanted to use the touch feature as well, but it really isn't very good. Instead of a bamboo pen, though, I suggest a bamboo connect. It has, if I'm not mistaken, slightly better specs and costs about the same. Hope this helps
Also, I purchased my Wacom Capture on ebay for less than half the price and its practically new. SO TOTALLY USE THEM
I have the Pen&Touch one, but I honestly don't use the touch thingy. To be honest, I have turned it off months ago (if not years- I've been using this tablet for almost 3 years now). I'm not usre abot each device's specifics, but if there's no difference in pressure sensitivity or nibs wearing down- just go with Pen and save yourself a ew bucks. And then go have some ice cream, because ice cream is awesome.
I have a bamboo capture and I can confirm that the touch feature is nothing special. Don't bother! If you want a tablet you can use your fingers with, you may as well buy an Apple Magic Trackpad. That would be MUCH better and it costs a similar amount of money. Plus it looks sexy. And if you have more money to spend, just buy an iPad (or Galaxy Tablet, but I have actually drawn with an iPad before and know it has amazing apps) and you'll have a tablet WITH a screen AND it doubles as a computer. As a note, none of these suggestions have pressure sensitivity(well, okay, iPad 2 has stuff with pressure sensitivity but it costs extra)
personally, I'd just go for Bamboo pen. I rarely use my tablet outside of art, and multitouch gestures just annoy me. I don't think touch will be that useful in dig art. ((though I must admit, wireless capabilities for the pen & touch do seem pretty cool. wires annoy me in general))
