Do you use a graphics trackpad with a pen to edit photos?

Since, in general, m43 photographers are more likely to be enthusiasts rather than full time professionals, I am wondering how many of you use graphics tablets for post processing.

I've read that there is a bit of a learning curve and I am wondering if a tablet is the type of device that requires you use it very regularly to stay familiar with it.

I have poor manual dexterity and I am wondering if these devices will make the problem worse than with a mouse or increase my precision.

How practical is it to take these with you with a laptop for mobile work?
