Corel has a bundle deal with Painter 8, Wacom tablets of varying sizes, and a training CD.

Painter 8 + Graphire 3 4x5 Tablet = $229.00 US Dollars

Painter 8 + Intuos2 6x8 Tablet + Free Training CD = $469.00 US Dollars

Painter 8 + Intuos2 9x12 Tablet + Free Training CD = $579.00 US Dollars

Painter 8 = $299.00

Intuos2 6x8 Tablet = $299.99

Intuos2 9x12 Tablet = $469.99

I have an old Aiptek Hyperpen8000 6x8 Tablet that I got as a gift. I hear that Wacoms are by far the best tablets. My question to everyone is whether I should just buy Painter 8 and keep my old tablet, or if I should take advantage of one of these deals to upgrade to the better tablet. Thanks, I appreciate it.
