    Yeah the Bamboo is nice for the price. I think I paid $70-$80 for mine.

    I works fairly good for the small jobs I do with it, if I was using a pen 8 hours a day I would defiantly upgrade but for a couple of hours a week it is good enough.

    Don't bother looking at any other brands, even the low end Wacoms are excellent. I've got an ancient Graphire 2, use it nearly everyday, and have never really thought about upgrading... but I use it mainly for retouching photos, and not for sketching/drawing - so the tiny size isn't an issue for me.

    i have the Bamboo Pen and Touch from Wacom and it is great for a person just starting out. They are only $100 brand new.

    @iBall The size will be just fine. I thought that it would be to small also, but it actually is more spacious then it looks.

    Yes, a tablet will open up a whole new world when it comes to design and graphics. However, there is a bit of a learning curve to get used to it. It's not the same as drawing on paper, and that's what frustrated me at first. I can draw very well, but the first time I played with a tablet, it was like I had never picked up a pen in my life.

    Just stay with it though. Once it seems comfortable, you'll wonder how you ever got along without it.

    Wacom tablets are awesome. I illustrate with the cheapest bamboo for about 6 hours a day, every day, its awesome. Go for it, Wacom are quality.
