    Want to upsize you Wacom?

    Well, I want to downsize mine. I've got a 9 X 12 Intuos2, in great shape. I just got a laptop, and that huge tablet is jut too damn big to cart off to the coffee shop.

    So, I'd like to downsize. A 6 X 8 Intuos3 would be ideal. I checked ebay, and it seems like an intuos2 9 X 12 goes for about $250 (US), and a 6 X 8 Intuos3 goes for about $275 (at the top end).

    So how about this: If someone out there wants to trade a 6 X 8 Intuos3 for my 9 X 12 Intuos2 , I'll pay for shipping & packaging stuff for both.

    Any Takers?

    I'm kinda interested. It's like getting free money.

    But sounds too good to be true. If I send you my wacom... how do I know you'll send yours?

    It's not too good to be true, really, just not as portable for some people. I have a Wacom 9x12 that I recently purchased with a laptop as well and I wish I had a smaller Wacom to be more mobile too.

    The best advice for trading is to make sure both sides get delivery confirmation from the post office and trade addresses right off. I went in on a PS2 deal on YahooAuctions a couple of years back and the guy had nothing to sell. The post office got on him quickly. Anything with a value over $100 in most places constitutes a felony. The police get involved, it gets bad.

    However, I doubt you have anything to fear. I am in the same boat as Goat and understand his wanting a smaller tablet.

    Hey Parker-

    Glad to hear somone's intirested. But I have to say, It's not really like getting free money. Just a bigger tablet. My Inutos 2 is in great shape, but it IS an older model then the intuos 3 (which I hope to get). I chose the details of my proposed trade to try & make it as even as possible. If you're cool with a few surface nicks on the frame & a little finish wear and want a bigger tablet, then I'd say you're in good shape.

    As far as making sure we (you) don't get shafted, well, I say we do this:

    1- Talk on the phoneif possible. We can make sure we're of one mind on all the details. We exchange full names, addresses & phone numbers, both for shipping and for accountability.

    2- Use delivery confirmation. I actually have a UPS account, and they've got great tracking and signiture verification. I can send you my tablet & email you a tracking # right away.

    Also, I may not have that many posts on this board, but I was in Prague, and know several people here pretty well who I'm sure would give me a good reference. CSteaingart is one- roomed with him.

    Let me know!
