a wacom bamboo fun would be reasonably cheap, of good quality and will work.

I have the Wacom Bamboo, and it's been great to me so far. I just hate the pen. There's no grip or anything ergonomic on it, so it can become frustrating when using it for extended periods of time (sweaty hands, etc).

Tracking and pressure sensitivity are great with it too. Cost me about $90.

yes, but to get a really good pen you're up to an intuos, much more than the $80-90 you can pick up a bamboo for Wonder if you can use another pen.. hrm.. I should bum a bamboo and try it

I emailed Wacom about what different pens I could use, and they responded that the Graphire series pens are, in fact, compatible with the Bamboo tablets.

Regardless, the Bamboo is your best bang/buck tablet. I'm upgrading very soon. I need one that's slightly larger, and I want a better pen.

It's important to keep in mind that the Bamboo series is also only half as sensitive as the Intuos.

That said, I use a monster Intuos3 at work and a small Bamboo Fun at home and they both work really well. The Intuos is obviously the way to go, but the Bamboo is a great way to get your feet wet.

I agree with you. The Intuos was designed with the professional in mind, whereas the Bamboo, was more for the home-user. Needless to say, the Bamboo is still a great tablet, and is perfect if you're just getting into it.

Not to mention, the Intuos series is a heck of a lot of cash more than the Bamboo.
