This is an awesome piece of tech, and Wacom certainly know how to design sexy looking products. I'm not entirely sure how useful this will be for that many people though. For me, the beauty of working in traditional over digital is the ability to throw anything at a sketch - pens, pencil, markers, paints... pretty much any medium can be mixed and matched to achieve the result you are after. Limiting me to just one pen seems to suddenly take the funcionality back that of previous wacoms (although you do get the benefit of direct coordination between sketch and the tablet that was only previously afforded to the Cintiq). I'm guessing there will be some people out there who will love this, but for poeple who like traditional sketching because of its freedom with different media, I think they will find this limiting...
My 2 cents :)
