So recently I got very interested in getting into digital art and start improving my drawing skills. I've been thinking about buying a Graphic tablet for a while now, but I have no idea what would suit a newbie like me. I'm not planning to make a big thing out of it, just a little side hobby to do from time to time. So I have no need for the more professional and expensive Graphic tablets out there.

Does anyone have any recommendations for me? I appreciate all help

Wacom Intuos CTL 480. I had no issues with it. Just erm, take care of the wire, I guess?

I've been drawing (non-professional work) on a Wacom Intuos CTL-480 too for the last 3 years and everything is fine with it. Totally worth its 100$ in my opinion.
I'm using GIMP, Inkspace, Synfig and Blender on Linux and had no compatibility issue yet.

I don't think this particular model is still being sold though, but when the time will come that I'll need a new tablet, I will buy another Wacom.

Wacom seems like the way to go eh? CTL 480 is not really available anymore of what I see. However CTL 490 is their new model lineup and they have 4 different verisions with different pack in software for various purposes it seems like. The cheapest one of them does not have touch functions. Does touch make the experience better? Or is it just something you don't really need?
