I've got to give that a try.. have a cintiq and wanted to add an intuos for general desktop stuff but thought it might not work (two styluses, etc).

guess you just have to commit to it for a while and get used to the differences

Pretty sure I've done that - Cintiq plus Intuos - in the past and its worked fine. I tried using a pen on screen with SolidWorks, and while its kind of nice for drawing splines I can't see how its any faster or more comfortable for CAD, not to mention the rest of the human-machine interface. To each their own.
