    Default Bamboo/Intuos3 tablet

    G'day,

    I am thinking of getting a tablet for photoshop and sketchup use. My wife may use it to draw on the computer.

    I was looking at the Bamboo (not Fun) to start with, but then I thought I might bite the bullet once and get the Intuos3 6x11. It's a big leap in size as well as in price. The smallest Intuos3 is a worry because my wife is left-handed, so I made the step up.

    Has anyone used both? Shall I be concerned about the sensitivity + tilt if I picked the Bamboo?

    Thanks
    Matt

    If you are not doing illustrations and digital imaging, the Bamboo would suffice. The Bamboo does not have the tilt function btw. While the wisdom here will say get the best your money can buy, I would rather you spend on something that you will make full use of it.

    I have both at home and I can't the difference in terms of basic usage except for the tilt (which I hardly use anyway). The only thing which bothers me about the Bamboo is the size. Other than that, every thing is works pretty much the same. Hope that helps.

    Which of the Bamboo do you have? The 4x6? What about the Intuos3?

    Can I know how much you all got them for? I'm eyeing an intuos 3. Currently have a graphire 3 but it's defective, so it makes sense to move up.
