Hi! Didn't know where to post this, however as this is a input device as the mouse, I think this section would be the most appropriate.

Anyway, I have a Design class in school, and using the mouse to design business cards aren't the most effective and precise way to do it, thats why I need som advice...

I've chased it down to the Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch, which is in a pretty friendly price range for me, however I don't know if it's a bad choice? I'm a little worried that when mixing Touch and Pen input, that the Pen input might suffer from the other? I wouldn't like a tablet which is made to be used with the fingers more than the pen...

So any other brands than Wacom or any other product from Wacom that I should look for instead?


Friendly Regards
Jacob

I have a Wacom intuos4. The only thing I would advise is to make sure you save and get a tablet with a large surface. Small surfaces dont translate to big resolutions so well. However, if all you going to be doing is making business cards im sure you wont have a problem. I dont think I have ever seen a tablet that is touch. I could be wrong.

Well the business card thing is just project we are doing at the moment... So the tablet is going to be used for other things too

I was looking at the Intuos4 but they are just sooo expensive! :O I also had a look at this model: http://www.wacom.eu/index2.asp?pid=294&lang=en&spid=30

Yeah I figured but there is always the chance that maybe you just love business cards.

I have heard good things about the Bamboo products. My intuos really nice and the software is solid. Their made by the same company so if I were to put that together Im sure you'll be fine. If I were you Id look for the one that provided the biggest dimmensions for the best price. The one you linked looked pretty nice.

I misunderstood your first post I thought you said you were looking for a tablet that you can touch, I didnt realize they actually made them. Thats weird. Seems like it would be awkward.

What do you mean about "Touch"?
