Hi, I'm new and I have no idea where and how to start or if its even possible with an intuos5 touch medium.

I've browsed through this forum and I mostly see post on progress or troubleshooting midway by guise who know what they're doing. Is there any foolproof step by step guide for a dunderhead? I've seen the tabletmod site but I dunno if its necessary to spend money there.

Basically I don't need anything fancy. Just something with good resolution (I'm willing to splurge on the LCD if it will help) and no jitters or anyproblems, looks nice, and can easily be put in and taken out as needed if I want to use the regular tablet.

Sounds like you are asking exactly what 90% of people here are asking.  Grin  And no, there is no "working recipe" nor "tutorial" and certainly no guarantee that it will work (especially the jitter portion or fatal LCD breaking). There are so many variants of tablets and especially LCDs that it is hard to be lucky to pickup the same parts. Often the same LCD monitor might have different LCD panel component inside(!).

NOTE: Using a "touch" tablet will of course remove the "touch" portion since you are going to have a LCD in front of the tablet. Something to think about.

The only way to try to remove much of the uncertainty from a build is to find a successful build on this forum that matches what you want and matches parts that you can find in a price range that suits you.  Lots of reading ahead. :-) 

There are always alternatives to Wacoms that are not "fancy" that you can buy instead. If you can afford it, that is often the best option for someone that is not a tinkerer.

So do you think I could go with an intuos4 medium build as a guide? Or would it be best to buy plans of tabletmod?
