I got a tablet for christmas and I'm going through a stage my friend calls tablet love (she owns one too)

A tablet is a piece of hardware that essential allows one to draw stuff like they would with a pen on the computer. It's a flat sensitive screen and it comes with a "pen" that you move around on the screen and "draw" with. Less control than an actual pencil or pen, but better than a mouse. here's a photo.


So this forum is devoted to tablets. Do you have one? Do you want one? what company and what programs do you use with it. Do you love it? Hate it? Confused on how to use it?

For those people who question why anyone would want one of these things, let me ask you......

I have one! It's a Wacom Intuos something... but it's old and the buttons on the pen broke.
When I first got it, I think I went through "tablet love" too. xD
I've never used a mouse since I got it, so I guess I still love it. o.o

I use to have one, I also went through the "tablet love" for about a week or so then I got over it. Somehow, its much more fascintating to draw/write on rather then with a normal pencil on a piece of paper. I *cough* dropped it *cough* and that was the end of the tablet, =_= it broke. I still have the "pen" that comes with it though, just a little thing to keep the stage of life I went through.

I also prefer pen and paper but it makes doing stuff in photoshop waaaaaay easier

I think you have to order them. You could look though. They're really expensive. I'd suggest Bamboo from wacom (they are home version and not the professional kind so they're less expensive. plus the one I got came with photoshop elements, Painter essentials, and Niks color effects pro, so all together it was a good deal.
