Hmm, that's a good question. I'll see if Matt still has this kicking around and ask him. As for the higher-end models, they do have more pressure-points, but for many people it might not be such a big deal. They might be more useful to those who spend days, not hours, on art.

Well to be honest, I think Wacom tablets in general are well worth the cash for those who will use them often. It's far more natural to draw with a pen than a mouse, so the unit more than pays for itself right away.
