Don't do it.
I've seen folk try this over and over and come back unsatisfied. With more and more touchscreen tablets and using a pen to draw folk seem to like that better.
As to the erase, I tap the color I want to draw with or tap the erase button and keep going. There is no reason to mandate an erase tip. Yes you want that. Get over this and open up to how it's moving today. Try a friends tablet with a pen.
Try one of the Samsungs with their SPEN.
Don't understand your "Don't do it"
I am The only one of my friends that is into computers so trying somebody else's tablet or any gadget is not an option. I do not understand the way you try to convey your opinion or knowledge or experience about the eraser tip can you try explaining it a different way because I'm not understanding your words.
Why? Because I tried those over the years.
As to the eraser I think you are trying to push the idea of the physical world onto what is just another input device. That is, I've only been around computing since the 70's so why not get a Wacom and use it as intended?
Don't want another gadget
Thank you for your insightful opinion. While tablets are already being used I don't have the funds to buy a tablet that I don't need. I have an iPad 4 that I am still in love with and a 3 year old laptop that I just upgraded last year to add RAM and a second hard drive to and this unit still has a ton of living to do. Although the size of my laptop is large and clunky (17" screen - I chose it to be that large as that was what I wanted at the time and I'm still in love with it) I would rather not have to try to figure out how to transfer all my info and programs and what not to a tablet and I tend to think that many of the programs that I have would in fact NOT be capable of making the switch over for reasons that they came from shall we say "various sources".....I'll leave that open to your own interpretation on what that means.
I have consulted with the folks at Wacom and some other "from China" brand and I have been directed toward the Wacom Intuos line being a good starting point - not their Intuos Pro line but the basic Intuos line so I think I am finally getting an idea of what might be a good direction to start in. Do you have any opinions on the Wacom Intuos line?
Folk seem to like the Wacom line.
My view is that once in a while I'll get a client that wants a specific solution. If they have the suitcase of green we might setup the engineering team to get it done but in this case I think you need to try out what there is in the here and now. Folk do like Wacom stuff.
Googling is your friend. Embrace it, Love it, Live it.
Although I agree with R.Proffitt that your wishes are a bit redundant.
To answer your question:
You have 3 choices:
Anything from the Intuos Pro series. ( the pen has an eraser) and you have to pay extra for a wireless set. (the pen is wireless but the tablet isn't if you want the latter to be wireless too you have to buy the kit that makes it wireless)
OR Anything newer from the Wacom family and buy a compatible stylus with an eraser .
OR Die crazy and alone in an asylum because you wanted something you could not have.
Googling for the win.
