Compatibility and connectivity

One of the major differences between One by Wacom, Intuos, and Intuos Pro series is the connectivity. One Does not have a BlueTooth connection. It's not a make or break issue but being able to connect to your pc wirelessly can come in handy, especially if your workspace is tiny and clutters up easily - one less wire can do wonders. Intuos and Intuos Pro Models with or without BlueTooth are listed below.
