The Intuos is definately the better product with lots more features. So if you spring for a few more bucks you are way ahead of the Bamboo.
Intuos wins hands down
Thanks all! An Intuos Medium it is! Great (and quick) imput! Appreciated!
+1 from me, too.
Now, I still have an ArtZ II, with serial connection, on one older machine, and it still works well. Then, I have various Intuos tablets (nothing really new), on the others. Here, I thought that I was rough on my Wacoms, 'cause I use two outdoors on my patio, but you have "bested" me, as I have only had to replace a few nibs. Maybe because I spread the work over 4 Wacoms, they have lasted longer?
Stick with the Intous line.
