Wacom Intuos Pro (medium) tablet
For most applications, a keyboard and mouse are all you need to drive a computer, but when editing photos a pen can make things a lot easier.
The Wacom Intuos Pro tablets offer 2048 levels of pen pressure sensitivity and tilt recognition that gives you a high level of accuracy and precision in your work. Not only that, but the surface is touch-sensitive, allowing for multi-touch gestures to navigate your work intuitively.
Add an optional wireless kit and you have all the advantages that a tablet offers, with none of the wire hassles.
