    Yes

    The t730 isn't 13", but it might come with multitouch as well as Wacom, as its newer. The other two are 13" screens but have no multitouch options, asfaik. That's really the breakdown.

    If you want 13" screens and multi-touch, you need to look at the t900. It might be in your budget range.

    All 3 should do what you want in terms of specs, imo, though clearly the t4410 is the oldest of the bunch. If you've got the money though, go for the t900 or the t730, as they're the newest.

    Thanks Pesho and Steve B. I'm pulling the trigger on a used T730 from Germany. In the past I've used an Intuos4 and a Yiynova MSP19 but I think it's time to get something a bit more flexible.

    Hey Welsinki,
    did you get your T730?
    I also live in Germany and have almost the same requirements to the tablet I'm going to buy (see my Thread here). So I wonder if you're happy with the T730 and if there's something that's not good about it.
    Due to the fact that I never owned or even tried a convertible I can barely say if 12,1" is enough for me or if I should go for the T5010 and lose multi touch.
