Intuos2 goes platinum

The shiny new Platinum version of Wacom’s Intuos2 graphics tablet is designed to look right at home in a digital artist’s workspace. But don’t let its pretty face fool you: this is one serious input device.

I tested the 15x20cm version of the Intuos2 Platinum Edition, which overhauls the looks of the existing Intuos2 line.

Though primarily the province of designers, graphics tablets such as the Intuos2 are an excellent alternative to the ubiquitous mouse for computer users looking for more precise cursor control, or battling repetitive stress injuries. Except for the scroll wheel, the Intuos2 pen duplicates every mouse function, and offers pressure sensitivity as well.

If you still need a mouse, the Intuos2 doubles your input pleasure by including Wacom’s cordless, three-button 2D Mouse. Wacom improved the Intuos2’s looks with the Platinum Edition, but the software bundle remains the same. It features Adobe Photoshop Elements 2, CorelPAINTER Classic, and Wacom’s own brush presets for Photoshop.

If your work doesn’t require a graphics tablet, justifying the Intuos2’s cost can be difficult. But if price isn’t an obstacle, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a graphics tablet that does the job better.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
