Hi guys,
I'm in the market for a graphics tablet to help speed along my abilities as a future designer. I'm obviously a beginner and I've taken a look at Wacom's Bamboo series as a possibility however I'm curious what you guys on OCN use if anybody uses such a tablet and what you guys would recommend for a beginner/intermediate designer?

Also I'd like to keep it under 100 pounds / 150 dollars until I get any better smile.gif

So let me know what you guys think smile.gif

Thanks
Alex

My HP touchpad with ICS has been my main tablet for the last year now. Once windows 8 tablets drop i'll probably grab one of those and ditch using android for a tablet all together.

I don't think you and I are talking about the same thing mate tongue.gif I'm asking about graphics tablets, such as those you draw on and it shows up on your PC wink.gif

i started with a bamboo fun, realized i was being serious about this, bought an intuos 4. Wished i bought it in the first place smile.gif

Maybe you can get a used intuos 3 for cheap, that would be a good solution

Are you in the UK? Im assuming you are since you asked for a pounds price range as well. I recommend this for beginners. If you are a graphics artist you already know a few pointers. This is about 20 pounds i believe more than the basic. That because it comes with extra button on the left that help you turn off and on the touch sensor when using your hands, and other basic and helpful functions. I have the older version of this one. Im due to upgrade here soon to an Intuos. This tablet lets you do all you need. PLUS it is now wireless. My old one is still wired. So invest in the wireless kit as it helps when your moving turning the tablet around for contour and rouding shapes smile.gif. Its 69 pounds but you can get one for about 80 in dollars. (i've found one cheaper) Hope this helps!

if there is a best buy UK this here would suite a beginner really well. NOTE: it will take some time getting used to it but if you do get one try to make it an every day routine to use the tablet as your mouse and you we be able to do some serious work later on.

The first one I am going to get is the wacom bamboo. I personally don't have one, but I have several friends who all recommended this one to me as a good starter tablet..

Are these graphic specific as in any stylus input or are graphics tablets a whole breed altogether running a different OS? A lot of standard options here https://www.tabletninja.com/finding-the-best-tablets-under-100/ and here https://www.tabletninja.com/finding-the-best-tablets-under-200/

I started with a medium Intuos 5 and I loved it. Very intuitive and had a great work flow going. Then I started using a 24" Cintiq. Needless to say the Intuos was not sold long after ^^

According to your budget, I would like to suggest you Wacom Intuos Digital Tablet. It will come under $100 and it is compatible with Mac and Windows both. If you want more information then explore thecrazybuyers.com
