Every time I buy a new computer, with in a month of my purchase a new and better model catches my eye. This happened again not too long ago. My husband bought me a brand new laptop and not four weeks had passed when I saw an advertisement for a tablet computer. Wanting a new tablet pc but not wanting throw away all the money I had spent on my laptop I went on a search to find a tablet that I could connect to my existing computer.
Wacom's usb tablets are amazing. They attach to your computer via usb cord and enable you to draw, write or anything else that you can do with a keyboard or mouse you can now do with a pen. The package comes equipped with one pad, wireless pen, mouse, and Corel and Photoshop software.
If you like to draw than this is the most amazing tool. You just use your wireless pen to draw on the pad, which (resembles a mouse pad) and the image appears on your computer screen. The pen is very sensitive and you actually don't even have to touch the pen to the pad for it to work.
My children loves this tablet because they can create drawings and "art work" on the computer then manipulate it and turn it in to whatever they want. I love to make my own greeting cards so this tablet really helps in making personal pictures to go with cute sayings. I love to see my creations come to life. I realize that you can draw pictures with a mouse using a traditional paint program but I am not very good with the mouse. Thanks to the wireless pen I can draw exactly as I would if I were to sit down with a traditional pen and paper.
Overall this is a great tool at an affordable price. I found that it does take time to get used to the pen but other than that I can find no drawbacks.
