Hi Eric - MoI is set up in such a way that it can be driven with simple clicks on things and doesn't require touching the keyboard to do stuff. That is what makes it friendly for using on a tablet but those same things have also made it friendly to use on a mouse as well, it is not really like there is something extra that you gain if you use a tablet.

Most people who like tablets are artists who have a background doing a lot of traditional style drawing on a sheet of paper with a pen or pencil.

If you have spent a lot of time using a pencil, trying to draw with a mouse can feel pretty awkward and unfamiliar. Those people really like to use a pen tablet because it gives a much more familiar feel for just overall manipulation.

If you have already spent all your time working with a mouse, then it is likely that a tablet would actually feel weird to you since it is different than what you are used to.

But if you have done a lot of drawing with a pencil you may be interested in it.

> And what is the tablet that I should be looking for if I am convinced to try it?

Any of the Wacom ones are good.
