Bamboo Fun

Bamboo Pen & Touch combines the benefits of Multi-Touch with the comfort and precision of Wacom's ergonomically-designed pen. The result: a powerful new way to work with your computer.

With Multi-Touch, you use simple hand gestures and finger taps on the tablet's surface. And because the active area is larger than traditional mobile devices and laptop track pads, it's comfortable and natural to use. Easily move around your desktop, scroll through documents, navigate the web, zoom in and out of photos, and rotate images.

Skritter Recommendation

I went for the larger size mainly because I wanted to use the tablet for drawing as well as practicing on Skritter. I just draw for fun so I don't need anything more. This one gives you a good deal more room to work with than the smaller Bamboo tablets, but still at an affordable price.

It also works quite well with my Linux laptop. I'm running Fedora Linux, and installing the Wacom driver was nice and simple. And GIMP, the image editor of choice on Linux, works seamlessly with the device.
