i want to get a tablet so bad and i have $200 dollars saved up. i was thinking about getting a Wacom tablet. Are there anymore good tablets that is good?

also do i need a art program before getting a tablet (like Paint Sai ) or does it come with it?

thank you for your time.

The tablets usually do come with programs, but I would recommend getting SAI or photoshop if that is an option for you. (Super expensive). I use a wacom Intuos 4 but it's kind of advanced... I think most people like the Bamboo if it's their first tablet.

Go with a bamboo, they're around $100-$150 so you can even buy SAI if you want..or you could download it illegally...like many others and I...

I usually recommend a Bamboo Connect for very new digital artists, but it isn't a tablet specifically meant for art. Apparently Wacom has come out with a new Bamboo tablet, called the Bamboo splash. It's literally the same as the Bamboo Connect but it's intended for drawing. It's $80, so you will have 120 dollars left. It comes with Autodesk Sketchbook which I wouldn't really recommend for serious art but it's a good doodling program. So you can even buy SAI with the left over money.

I got the Wacom Bamboo Create. It's retail price is $200, but I got it on Amazon for like $170. However, it's a really big one and the only reason I got it is because I, myself, prefer a larger canvas. But the Bamboo Capture is exactly like the Create, except it is smaller and the pen (which is included in the purchase) does not have a built-in eraser. (And the built-in eraser just means that you can use one end of the pen for drawing and another end of the pen for erasing.) The Capture's retail price is $100, but I'll bet you could get it cheaper on Amazon. And I don't know about the Capture, but the Create does come with Photoshop, which is a really good drawing program for tablet users. Both the Create and the Capture are good beginner tablets, so I strongly recommend getting one or the other, depending on if you want a bigger or smaller screen.

I'm not sure what I have. I looked at it right now and it's a Wacom Bamboo Model MTE-450

I use that tablet and just the Paint tool. The Paint tool came with the laptop.

Get the new bamboo splash, it's for digital art and it's really affordable... Smile or you can add more money and get the bamboo create ^^.

If you are in a professional level get the intuos5 (it's expensive)

The capture one is mostly for photo editing Smile
