    IMO the Bamboo is awesome for the price.

    I use an Intuos 3 (A4 ish working area, A3 full size) and I'm thinking of getting a Bamboo just to free space on my desk and be more portable.
    I was pretty disgusted when they got me a Bamboo back at my old job but I was soon impressed by it.

    I couldn't see much difference as I use AI and not PS but I actually preferred it due to its size.
    When you compare the price of Intuos to Bamboo then it's a no brainer if you're starting out.

    Edit.

    Not seen those ones you linked to before.

    I'd recommend a Wacom Bamboo to begin with.
    And yeah Levi I've sold my Intuos.

    So the cheap Intuos' are just Bamboo's, yeah?

    the new 'intuos' (ie like the one linked) are in essence the old bamboo's with a different shell, the old intuos have been renamed intuos pro...

    Thinking of getting one of the new Intuos', just a quick question though. I'm new to Wacom's so this might be a silly question, but is there a way to trace stuff directly into it?

    not sure about the bamboo/new intuos but my intuos 3 and 4 (ie older versions of the pro) have a plastic sheet that lifts up where you can 'trace' through.

    Mine's got the sheet but only thing I use it for is putting notes or the brief I'm working on.

    Oh do you tend to scan stuff in then redraw?

    I do.

    I just work from rough pencil drawings which I find works best for me.
