Wacom's Intuos tablet achieves Works With Chromebook status
Wacom is an OEM widely acknowledged as a leader in the field of digital stylus, drawing surface and pen-responsive display technology. Therefore, many aspiring creators, artists and teachers on a budget may be glad to learn that its first-party dedicated hardware is starting to become fully compatible with PCs that run Chrome OS.
For example, the base Intuos drawing tablet model has recently been graced with a Works With Chromebook certification. This allows a device in this program to show up and function on a Chrome OS PC on plugging in via a USB port without the need for drivers or other hoops through which to jump.
In the case of the non-wireless Wacom Intuos, its new certification allows it to connect via a USB type A port and set up straight away to use a Chromebook's display to visualize the output with its slim, 4,096-level pressure-sensitive first-party pen.
Furthermore, the Intuos ships with 3-month free trials of the useful remote-working or -learning apps Collaboard, Limnu, Explain Everything and Kami, not to mention Clip Studio Paint, a "powerful" app for graphic-novel-style drawing. The Intuos is available for a recommended price of ~US$80 from online platforms that include Amazon.
