I got a capacitive stylus so I can use my laptop's trackpad as a graphics tablet. It seems like drawing software such as SketchBook Express works quite well, but it only produces bitmap output. Are there any similar applications that would allow me to export my drawing in a vector format like PDF, and which support pressure-sensitivity?

Inkscape and iDraw are vector based programs that work on the Mac. I am unsure how they handle pressure-sensitivity on the trackpad.

I discovered that the free application Skitch supports tablet pen pressure and can output vector graphics, so I've been using this with good success.
