    Where can I buy a cheap Wacom Tablet?

    Hiya People,

    I've decided to finally invest in a Wacom Tablet, as I'm currently working on a project that needs much more than good mouse control! I've been browsing the net for a good deal on one, and have decided to get a Graphire Wacom 3 in A5, because a friend a work kindly let me borrow his A6 one to kind of 'Try before I buy', and I loved everything it could do but felt I needed a bit more space to move around on it with the Pen as I have a very 'sketchy' style.

    I'm based in the UK, so a UK Company would be better, although I could save £'s by paying $'s, so wouldn't mind getting it imported from the States (or Europe) if the price was right!

    The cheapest I've found so far is priced at £170 plus VAT and Postage.

    Has anyone got an idea of where I could get an even cheaper one? (I'm not that rich right now!)

    Cheers!

    £170 seems expensive. i bought a A4 graphire from dixons for £100, they do a graphire A5 for about £80.

    Edit: actually, the G4's are out now, they have expresskeys which could be nifty, prices look about the same.

    Cool, I'll check out DIXONS then! Didn't think of looking there! I checked out PC World but that was still pricey.....I looked at Ebay but couldn't find one I wanted....The G4 looks wicked but first I need to upgrade my computer from OSX 10.2.6 TO OSX 10.2.8, I'm looking into it but to be honest the G4 isn't miles better than the G3, plus the G3 is a heck of a lot more cheaper coz they've been about for a while now!!
