so I Got My TABLET and its the most BALLA SHIT EVA!
so basically i got my new tablet and it already makes me look way cooler.(see illistration below.) I have a wacom 4 x 6 intuos 3 from best buy and hooked it right up and it worked. once i installed teh software it already new my screen dimensions! The reason people say its hard to use a tablet is because instead of moving your wrist like a mouse (which it also comes with, (which just so happens to have 5 buttons and a 4 way mouse wheel!)) you move your whole arm to navigate around the screen.
but by playing with the pen for 10 minutes i already got the hang of it.
it has a touch sensitive bar on the tablet its self (like an ipod) and 4 buttons right on the tablet itself. 1024 levels of sensitiveity (yet not emo!) and tilt sensitivity! There is 2 buttons on the pen itself and you can turn it around and use the other side as an eraser not just for your drawing but even to erase text! 4 extra programs, a bitchin magnetic pen stand, and with vista you get a wicked cool handwriting typer thingy, you can literally not need a keyboard if you wanted.
this is AWSOME!
