    HElloooooooooooo! Happy day of love and all that jazz! On said day of love ,is there anyone around who happens to have a spare graphics tablet they don't want or know where I can buy a new one that isn't really expensive? I'm poor as well as stupid but I really could do with one.

    Any ideas?

    I have a small Wacom tablet that I found on-sale for around $70. It's would be nice to have a bigger one...but the price was right. Sorry, you can't have it though :D

    A colleague at work just bought one and it seems pretty nice. Small, but they now have buttons and a wheel which are programmable. They are far better than the graphire model they replaced.

    sounds good.

    would have loved to try it out myself first though. But now that we split up, no chance ;)

    I think I might pick myself a wacom bamboo up once I'm in Canada.

    The model is on the back and Wacom.com has drivers for every one they have ever made. I have a Intuos (per ii and iii) in 6X7 and 9X12. They still support it and I'd say it's close to 12-15 years old.

    Awesome. You all know considerably more than me and are far too helpful.

    Thanks :)

    does anyone know of a place that lets you try it out at a store before buying it? I know circuit city has one but not hooked up to a computer.
    I really want one too.
