I have been pondering as to whether or not to purchase an iPad 3. A student in my class was kind enough to lend me his for a week. It is a pretty wonderful device, but I am still on the fence about it. One thing I missed in the drawing applications was pressure sensitivity- meaning, the harder you push with the pen tool or your finger, the bigger the brush gets or the darker it gets depending on the settings. The iPad has one level, so brush strokes will be of even width. Below you can see the difference with and without the sensitivity to pressure. If I do not get an iPad I am considering a cheap laptop with a small Wacom Tablet.
