New Wacom Bamboo Tablets Fit All Budgets

October 5, 2011

Wacom has two major lines of graphics tablets. At the high-end are the Intuos tablets. I have one and love it. Not every user needs the extra features in the Intuos line and the price may be out of budget range. For users who want the benefit of using a graphics tablet to draw on their computer, the Wacom Bamboo line has several new iterations that may be of interest.

I’ve included a product comparison chart below that gives you a feature comparison chart for the three Bamboo models. The Connect sells for approximately $75, the Capture sells for $85 (though I saw one offer for much less) and the Create sells for approximately $186. For those who have already used a tablet, it might be time for a new model. If you’ve never used a tablet, you will be thrilled to be able to draw using a pen instead of soap on a rope!

    What o/s comes on these? Are these just for graphics editing or would they be similar to the othet tablets that are available today? Do they read and write to external hard drives? Thanks!

    Jenny, there is no operating system on the tablet. They are a pointing device to be used with a computer.
