    Tablets

    Hey guys, I have another question here.

    My boyfriend is interested in buying me a tablet and I have no idea where to look. I was wondering if you guys could help me out? Maybe throw in your thoughts or give me a good website. I don't know.

    Anyway, I don't think he would go for the really expensive types, but just something inexpensive and dependable. The last tablet I got was from my parents a long time ago. I believe they paid close to $200 for a Pablo drawing Tablet. It was ok for my first tablet. I'd have a lot of problems with it though. I ended up using the mouse more often then not, and since I upgraded to XP awhile ago, I can't use it anymore.

    I personally dont think it was worth how much it cost and I dont want to see it happen again. Thats why I'm coming here.

    link to ebay for a search on wacom tablets 9x12

    http://search.ebay.com/search/search...om+tablet+9x12

    there are fewunder 200$ that you can bid on..

    I reccomend nothing smaller than a 9x12... I use to have a little 6x8 and when I got a 9x12 it was like a whole new world..

    deffinitly go Wacom... there compadability with operating systems are nice.. and if you can get a USB one.. no power suply is needed witch rules!

    good luck

    I have the cheapest and smallest one of the family: a Wacom Graphire 2. I also have a very big 1000 Euro A3 sized Wacom tablet, that is catching dust somewhere in a corner 'cause it's too big to handle.
    The Graphire 2 works fine with me...
