    No, don't get the bamboo. If you're going to get a tablet, get the Wacom Intuos models. You want to use the best possible tool for this. It's not worth the lower price, unless you just want to draw happy faces and stick figures=).

    If you can draw, you can draw with a Bamboo. If you can't draw, Intuos won't make you a great artist.

    Jaas hit the nail on the head. A pressure sensitive tablet is all you need.
    I got by on a basic one for years. Buy it if you like the sound of it. It's a
    good tablet to start with.

    Actually the answer is this. If you intend to draw on the computer a lot as well as do a lot of studies, you'll still need a slightly better bamboo.

    Bamboo pen is is really more of a "graphic design" light use tablet.

    If get the Bamboo Fun/Pen and Touch.

    One thing that the Pen doesn't have is the eraser end, and while some artists don't use it, it's still handy to have. You also want a bit of a bigger size. Small tablets are doable but if you intend to draw a lot on it, you would be better with a medium sized tablet.

    Okay thanks guys, And Jaas got it right, if someone knows how to draw, it doesn't matter if he uses a pencil or a coal.
    I"ve already bought this tablet two days ago, I"ll get it soon let's hope I won't be dissapointed.
    Trust me, If I could I would have bought cintiq, intous or whatever .. But I don't have large amount of money to spend
