The MSP has a UHD display and the same types of ExpressKey controls as the company's Intuos Pro tablets.

The 16-inch model is big, but still fits comfortably on your lap -- or at least my big lap.

On the Intuos tablets, the buttons and radial control are black and don't stand out on the bezel. I really wish Wacom would provide some sort of context-sensitive LED text to tell you what the current mappings are because the memory-learning curve is really steep when you use a lot of applications.

To use this control, you press one of the buttons and then slide your finger around.

In conjunction with the tablet, the stylus supports 8,192 levels of pressure sensitivity.

The tablet has an 8-megapixel front camera/webcam on the right side (if you're a righty and the tablet's in landscape orientation).

Only the center one works with the Wacom Link.

The RealSense camera is on the top of the back, along with the slots of the optional stand and rubber feet.

The 16-inch model weighs about 5 pounds/2,200 g, which isn't light if you have to hold it for a long period of time.

It supports both standard Windows multitouch and Wacom-programmable gestures.

Don't look at my cuticles.

See the stylus switch? I find the pen always rotates in my hand until I'm pressing on it.

This programmable onscreen menu isn't new, but on the MSP 16's 4K display, it's tiny.

On the left are a volume rocker switch, orientation lock, power slider, headphone jack and SD card slot.

This optional adapter lets you connect the MobileStudio Pro to a desktop system to use it as a touch display and pen tablet.

The Wacom Link connects to your system via both USB-A and DisplayPort cables.

The adapter combines the USB and DisplayPort signals into a single USB-C connection to the tablet.
