Wacom Graphire Bluetooth tablet

It’s been a while since I’ve purchased a tablet. The last one was a Wacom Artpad II, and I can tell you that I don’t believe there’s much that supports serial ports anymore.
In any case, I needed something that worked with my Mac well and I could flow freely. Since the Wacom Graphire Bluetooth 6×8 Tablet was wireless, it was a perfect match. The price was a bit more hefty than I would have liked but for the size of the tablet, it was definitely worth every penny.
The package comes with a charger, the tablet, a Graphire pen, pen stand, Graphire mouse, and manuals and software. Software is both the Mac and PC edition so that was nice. The Graphire mouse, I hardly use mainly because I use my Macbook Pro for most things and only need the tablet for design work.
The one thing that I love about this tablet is the size and that it’s wireless. While there’s some range on the device, you really don’t need to be sitting too far away anyways unless you have such a massive monitor that you might as well be purchasing a Cintiq.
For those that are considering to buy a tablet but have never used one before, this is just some advice on how tablets work. When you draw, your screen is proportional to your tablet. So therefore, the top left corner of tablet is the top left of your screen and so on so forth. Thus, if you are getting a smaller tablet, you will be making a lot finer changes for details than a larger one. Obviously the best would be a Cintiq since it’s a 1:1 ratio of drawing to tablet since you’re using a monitor sized board, but outside of that, to each their own. I chose the Wacom Graphire BT because of both size and wireless and so far I have been extremely happy about it.
