    Can't go wrong with the Wacom brand, Graphire series for the entry-level, Intuos for the professional.

    Or if not, go for the cheaper brands like Genius; currently using one and it's not bad too, just that it doesn't have the "brand factor" and ergonomics-wise not as good as Wacom's.

    Just a point to note when you buy some cheap unknown brand of tablet. Always backup your driver disk... once lost.... you may never find it online..... Anyways, advantage of wacom tablets is that lots of people got it work on linux... not that it matters for you....

    U want my Wacom Graphire 2 tablet? Good for basic stuff. Beatup, but still works well. I planning to get a better mouse instead. One of those wired new-fangled 'laser mouse' that boasts a higher point of precision so I no nit to squint and squint.

    Nothing of anything provided. Just tablet, pen. If u can pay me $60. Its all urs.
