I got the router to work last night (thanks for the offer, Ciri! it was half operator error, half ecelectic Alaska DSL settings) and I LUV my new laptop. Oh, baby. It's fast, it's clean, I love it six ways to Tuesday. Photoshop 7 is successfully installed, and if I could get the stupid FTP program to work, we'd all be golden.
But! The little touchpad thing is a little restrictive. So I think to myself, get a mouse. Then I think to myself... why a mouse? Why not a little wireless tablet that will do mouse functions AND let me digitally color?
They have here at 2 Geeks an under $100 (It was either $45 or $68, I was pricing a bunch of things, and now I don't remember which was which...) True-touch (I think?) 6 x 8 wireless tablet. I asked about quality, they said it wasn't the super-precise Wacom tablet, but it was serviceable. And I could buy it on the way home tonight... *glee*
Anyone heard horrid things? Hold out for Wacom? Shop online and be patient? I will probably eventually get the Intuous that costs a buttload and will do everything, but is this a decent mouse-replacement/drawing tablet? Advise me, wise Friends!
