After much consideration, I'm easing into using a tablet. Went with a moderately inexpensive XP-Pen Star 03 Pro. Set up was pretty easy, but the documentation sucks. You have to download driver and manual, which wouldn't be bad except their manual is only 5 tiny pages with minimal information leaving you to hunt for the settings. Once set up though it seems pretty straight forward, I did have to slow the response considerably to match my "older" response time. One thing that's causing some issue with "unlearning", is I got in the habit of using two hands with the touchpad and a wireless mouse simultaneously using function of both. Using the tablet disables the touchpad, leaving me tapping away with my left hand on a dead pad.
