The Genius G-Pen 560 is a tablet and electronic pen that built for art designers. This is similar to the Genius G-Pen 4500, but has a larger working area of 4.5 x 6 inches and does not include a mouse. The cordless pen is sensitive to up to 1024 levels of pressure, allowing lines to be drawn at various thicknesses intuitively as required. Two buttons on the pen can be used as left and right mouse clicks, or they can be programmed for other functions instead. A "Hot-Key" area on the pad can be used for quick activation of various office and Internet functions. Bundled software allows for handwritten notes on documents of various types and special functions for live presentations. The PhotoImpact XL SE, also included, allows quick editing of photos, charts and web graphics.
