My daughter Suhaila likes to draw and paint.
She wanted to get a tablet that she can draw with, without the awkwardness of using a mouse for a task that is better handled by a pen.
So, when Staples had a $50 off sale ($249.99) on the Wacom Intuos 4 (Small) tablet, there was finally a chance to get it at a lower cost.
We tend to buy higher dollar items from BestBuy, because of the Reward Zone points. BestBuy had the tablet for $329.99, and asking for a price match make them sell it for Staples' price.
The nice surprise was that there was one open box item, and they let it go for just $200!
Yet a nicer surprise was that this tablet worked straight with Kubuntu Linux 9.10 and 10.04, with no configuration at all.
She uses the GIMP to draw, and I hope we can see some of her handy work posted on the internet sometime soon.
