I've been reading some things about the tx2500 and I've heard some complaints from artists about the having to press really hard to use the pen and it randomly recognized your hand instead of the pen. I'm really considering this tablet because I need a laptop for college and I'd like to take notes with it, but I'm also an artist and I want to make sure drawing on it feels just like drawing with a Wacom tablet. I played around with a tx1000 at Microcenter, and it seemed fine, but I wasn't using Photoshop. (I'm assuming they are similar.) Are there any other common problems I should be aware of as well? A few people seemed to have serious hardware issues.
