depends if you have hardware

If you have a decent pc or laptop that is way more powered and useful than an ipad, then get a wacom tablet

If you don't have the hardware, then ipad makes more sense

Yes, a iPad Air works well too.
This popped up in one of my watches that I set up before my current iPad. I’d recommend the iPad over the Wacom. My daughter has this Wacom One and an iPad, the Wacom sits in its box.

I would consider what the use case is and research dependent on that use case. I would also strongly advise against listening to people who are using anecdotal evidence of their children's habits to make a purchase for anything like this.

My opinion, though, is this. If you are looking to move yourself in a more professional direction, with a lot of options for software and customization, then Wacom will be a better option. If you're just hobbying and you want a device with more versatility, such as something that can browse the internet and play streaming media, then the iPad is a better choice.

Yes, it needs computer.

Its a graphics tablet -- not a computer tablet or e-reader or laptop. Its purely an external display with extremely good rendering & capabilities. For example, WACOM pen technology, which is on par with/superior to Apple's pen.

Some people may think this isn't a big issue, but it is, if youre a graphic artist. Almost all graphics tablets that are non-WACOM have some "jitter" or line-smoothing that looks either bad or too heavy-handed, and therefore ruins the feeling of making artwork and can sometimes ruin it.

Microsoft Surface Pro used to use WACOM technology but switched to N-Trig technology, which was a huge loss for graphic designers, bc N-Trig is jittery -- but Microsoft had bought the company so didn't want to pay WACOM, which charges big fees for its tech.

The ability to draw on an external display, perfectly, means you can use as high-powered of a machine as you want -- and also have your main monitor at the same time. So you can use the best graphics cards and the most memory.

Whereas if you are just on a tablet, youre stuck with a tiny processor and tiny amounts of ram. Personally, I only trust WACOM technology and Apple iPads (specifically the Procreate App) for my artwork.

WACOM is what you want with any high powered PC.
Interesting to note: a LOT of these sold used on eBay. They do seem to hold their value while at the current model/version though. I just wonder why so many are selling them. These devices have always felt to me like a cool to have but when you actually get it I think many never end up using them, or not using them as much as they thought they would.

Does this work stand alone? Seems like it needs a computing device to work?

You need a computer. It is like a monitor that you can draw on it

This is WACOM EMR? Which of their pens, or aftermarket give the full sensitivity on this?

So you can use this with an iPad? And that gets a better result than using Apple Pen/Procreate direction on the iPad?

Do these have the issue where the pen dies forever if you dont use/charge it for a while like the Apple Pens?

EDIT: Nevermind, just read in the specs theres no battery in these pens.

You can't, I believe they are suggesting that they would only trust using either WACOM technology OR using ipads.
