New Wacom Tablet

The Wacom Intuos 3 graphic tablet straddles the line between enthusiasts using the Graphire 3 and high-end professionals using Cintiq display tablets. The resolution of the Intuos 3 has doubled to 5080 lines per inch both horizontally and vertically, with excellent response, feel, and accuracy.

The inclusion of programmable buttons on the tablet itself is a boon for anyone frustrated at having to move to the keyboard for common shortcut keys. The 6x8in tablets come with eight programmable keys - four each side and two touch strips that perform scrolling and zooming tasks as well as allowing you to quickly change brush sizes. The buttons and touch strips are customisable on a global or application by application basis.

Other enhancements include a beautifully weighted and totally redesigned pen and base - finally you'll actually use the base, as it no longer falls over every time you knock it! There is also a range of tip styles. The felt tip gives a lovely tactile feel, whereas the inking nib has more travel, giving more control over pressure sensitivity. A wireless optional mouse at around $50 rounds out the package nicely.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
