Try making a mask, such as is needed in THIS CHALLENGE and tracing the hair with a mouse. You'll soon be pulling your hair! It's basic to us because from day one in school we used a pencil or a crayon to do our work. Think back to the first time you tried a mouse. It took some getting used to, didn't it. The pen and tablet is like going home. It feels good in your hand. Makes you feel like an artist, even if you're not.

I have the Graphire, and I find it is just a nice size for me on my desktop. I bought it because I thought a wireless mouse would be a good idea, but I never use the mouse, just the pen. Try it if you're thinking about it at all. Sell it on Ebay if you don't like it...but I bet you will!

Now Greg, my point was that once you got used to a certain size it seemed right for you. So you see, I could never go to the smaller one now. Nice try though.

How about checking their refurbished prices? Sometimes that's cheaper but just as good. Wow, the prices have soared since I got my 6x8 Intous at about $275. You might also check out places like http://www.pricewatch.com/ or http://www.pricegrabber.com/index.ph...0c3e3a5c04176/ or even http://price-search.net/ Sometimes you can get quite a savings from those places.

I wonder what you'd call SA money then? 10 of our units (R) buys $1 Epson color cartridges are now around R700, yet you can buy 24 beers for R60 (and our major brewer just bought Miller). Our fuel costs around 40c (US) per litre.
