    \$\begingroup\$ I think the edited question has lost the original meaning and became rather useless since the answer is obviously YES. The first part of the question is IMO the actual question: in which way is Intuos better than touch screen ? And the answer would be: because you hold a pen and you have access to mor eprecision, plus tilt, plus pressure, plus eventually rotation data, which can be useful for drawing-like tasks. \$\endgroup\$

Assuming your Windows or Mac computer is compatible with the Wacom Intuos Pro, it can be used as an input device with Adobe Photoshop. As with any input device, it will work best if the latest drivers for it are installed on your computing device.
