Been searching around for a good deal on a pro level tablet and I heard Costco.com usually has great deals on them.... really great as it turns out. Comes with a neoprene case as well....

Bought one... I would have loved an Intuos4, but at $99 this is a STEAL IMO.

I haven't used either of them but beware that the 3s have been replaced by the Intous4s and from the reviews I have read the differences are major...

Wow that is an absolutely insane price. I paid at least double or triple that when I got mine new a while back.

Anyone wanting a VERY nice tablet, GO FOR IT!

I have read reviews also... and that is why I was really searching for a 4. The caveat to that on all reviews I read was that if you were staying with the small tablet, the differences weren't incredibly significant other than the pen and mouse construction themselves. The biggest difference was with the medium Intuos4, in that it has programmable OLED labels as well as a wheel. There is definitely more sensitivity in the 4, but for photo editing that difference was not readily noted in the reviews I read.

Aside from that... everyone I know that has or has used a tablet says I'll either love it or hate it. If I love it, I know that I got one heck of a deal on a pro-level tablet and if I hate it I'm sure I'll be able to get most of the money out of this one.

Looking forward to getting it and hoping someone got something out of this post....!!!

Yeah, I got a $99 charge on my credit card!

Seriously, thanks for the tip. I've just upgraded computer and software and this is a great price to round out my new set up!

Direct pen to surface feedback... no mouse. Some great videos on Wacom.com and youtube.com as well.

I showed my wfe and she just about flipped out. She has been a pen & ink artist for years. I couldn't draw a square or a circle. This is something for her.

The Bamboo is the consumer version (it replaced the previous Graphire line), and has half of the pressure sensitivity of the new Intuos (pro) versions.

However, the new Bamboo and that previous generation Intuos are pretty similar in features which is probably why it's below $100 now.

would the bamboo be good enough for edits vs drawing?

It is a great tool. I'm just using the older bamboo and works fine for what I need it for.
