Intuos5 with or without touch?

Yazoo11 Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I want to replace my old Bamboo tablet and get one of the Intuos series.
I really want the 5 but i noticed that theres the touch version. Is it really worth it buying the touch one becasue im still uncertain of what it can really do. It's an extra 70 and it's already expensive for just the standard version

For most people the touch feature is causing way more problems than the non-touch version.
So if you don't really think that you need the touch feature, then go for the version without touch.

In my opinion touch is one of the features that still needs development. My bamboo touch for example just goes crazy under windows 7. I don't even know if it's a problem of the tablet, the drivers or windows itself as "lemon1986" explained.

=> Non-Touch if you don't really need it and need to safe money.

I prefer without touch because i feel like i'd mess up when using touch.
The touch ring also zooms easy so theres no real point in the touch feature.

with touch if you own a mac! I tried the tablet with both systems! the touch works far more fluently on OSX!

otherwise don't bother yourself!

If you don't know if you need it, you don't need it. But really, this is your choice to decide for yourself.
