The first thing you notice about the Intuos3 is the industrial design. Gone is the matte plastic case of older versions, and in its place is a high-gloss, clear plastic similar to that used in some of Apple's hardware over the years. The clear plastic is backed by a graphite metallic colour, giving the tablet a cool and clean appearance. Previous versions of the tablet were not exactly style icons, but the new Intuos3 is a much more visually appealing product.
