    ....in with the NEW! :bowdown:

    I don't post in here much, but I figured you guys would appreciate this. Just came in on Friday....and I'm totally stoked.

    Totally worth the upgrade if you're thinking about it. I need some more time with it, to really see about the sensitivity (just how much of a difference there is between 1,024 and 2,048 levels of pressure). I can already tell you right off the bat....that it feels more "natural." Not really sure how to describe it, but it just feels better, more balanced, more precise. The other really nice thing....is now, there is not a minimum threshold of pressure needed to get the pen working.

    The Express Keys are great....now they have OLED screens next to them, that you can label what each key does! OMG...such a great idea! The Scroll Wheel in the middle, works just like an iPod. The toggle switch in the middle can cycle it through 4 settings.....and each one can be set to do things like Zoom in and out, cycle through layers, change brush sizes, etc. Very helpful.

    Another cool thing I've been messing with, is the new Radial Menu. You can program this menu that pops up...on the screen (overlaying everything), kinda like a widget...to do pretty much everything. For instance...I have one of the express keys set to launch the Radial Menu. When it comes up, it looks like a compass. I have "Command" on the top, you click that, and it switches to a submenu...where I can copy, paste, find, save, etc. Or select WWW from the main Radial Menu to launch your browser, or have it launch other apps, whatever. You can set all these up the way you want them, fully customizable. It's super cool....and will be very valuable.

    Here's another cool little thing....

    They've also changed the surface. It's got a rougher feel to it...closest to paper than any other tablet yet, imo. It's got a nice feedback/resistance to it. Definitely one of my favorite changes. The tablet itself is also thinner...which is great. :coold:

    Those are changeable nibs, for the pen. You've always been able to change them....what's new and cool....is that they've added a compartment in the pen base to hold them all.
