nice.....................
#2
Very nice deal. thought I like there higher end ones much better
#3
looks like the bamboo one and that is the same price at WH Smith (cashback?), although delivery is 4 weeks. http://www.whsmith.co.uk/CatalogAndSearch/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=33146935

If you use a laptop, this is a great product and a great price. I do prefer a bigger (Intuos A5) version for desktop use but this fit nicely in a laptop case.
The one at WHSmith is a basic version without definable keys and zoom wheel. This one is £64.99 at smiths.

BARGAIN!!!

Great price, think I'll get this come sunday. My friend who does animation uses this and some of the stuff he makes with it looks great.

Think this is the same model on amazon for £90?

Wiki

A graphics tablet is a computer input device that allows one to hand-draw images and graphics, similar to the way one draws images with a pencil and paper. These tablets may also be used to capture data or handwritten signatures.

A Graphics tablet (also called pen pad or digitizer) consists of a flat surface upon which the user may "draw" an image using an attached stylus, a pen-like drawing apparatus. The image generally does not appear on the tablet itself but, rather, is displayed on the computer monitor. Some tablets however, come as a functioning secondary computer screen that you can interact with directly using the stylus.

Some tablets are intended as a general replacement for a mouse as the primary pointing and navigation device for desktop computers.

No it's not the same. The aldi one is cheaper because it is the A6 size model, the amazon model is larger @ A5 size.

Great price thanks.

Mik, to be honest, in this case it's very much a case of, if you need to ask what you use it for, you don't need it. Digital image manipulation is really where graphics tablets shine - Photoshop and similar products - as it gives inredible fidelity and precision when drawing, or creating masks, etc. Unless you do photo editing, animation, or free drawing on your computer, you are unlikely to use it a lot - although i'm sure if you have one you will find all sorts of isolated circumstances where it is better than a mouse.

I once played a game of Unreal Tournament using a graphics tablet. An exercise in futility? perhaps, but entertaining nonetheless.

Wacom have got a new touch range coming out soon. Some people might want to check it out. http://www.wacom.com/bamboo/bamboo_touch.php

I'm waiting till next month for the bamboo touch, reasonably priced. $69 not sure of the UK price.

probably £169 then

I got the A5 version of this. Frankly I'm not impressed. I think you need at least an A4 version before they become usable. If you really want one save up and get the A4.

Blaser is right, this is not the same, this is the smaller A5 version.

I have the A4 version though, the kids use it for drawing, and as an replacement for a mouse. When you put the pen down on the top right of the active area, the cursor is positioned on the top right of your desktop screen - just to give you an idea. They are very well built, top quality and hard-wearing, although i personally would not recommend the bamboo ones for professionals. They arent as good as the more expensive £100+ models (no surprise there), just really for kids, novices, mouse alternative.
#22
Great, great product, but I bought one from amazon at the same price months ago.

hi, does anyone know which model number this is?

The one shown on amazon is an A6 version. The only larger bamboo is the bamboo fun, that amazon link is the plain and simple Bamboo, With the touch wheel at the top of this aldi one it looks to be the Wacom Bamboo, just like the amazon link. Amazon are charging more than it's worth really, play.com have it for £54.99

I'm a graphic artist. When I started out this size model was all I could afford. At first I thought it was too tiny - it's user face is just a bit bigger than 2X business cards size. I soon got used to it, and although you're unable to do big sweeping strokes with it (you'd need A4/A3) it's perfectly alright to work on most imagery.

But if your space is a bit cramped as mine was, it's good.

The pens for this alone are worth more than this.

Stonking deal.
#27
Thanks fopr some of the inputs, really interested in this for photo editing with Photoshop but with quite a hi-res screen at 1920x whatever it is. Would I be right in thinking on such a small size tablet and combined with hi-res screen you could hardly move the pen yet cover a massive area on screen? Basically it is too small?
#28
nah, it works fine. zoom in to cover smaller detail, and zoom out to see the full 'sheet' to do rough outlines.

i had an a3 one which was awesome, but theyre obviously an insanely larger amount of money.

might pick one up.

You can control the area of the screen that it affects or zoom in/out to control how much area it covers. I prefer a bigger tablet, but if cost and space is a factor this is a great tablet - Wacom are the best known and respected makers too.

Anything is better than a mouse or a trackpad if you want to sketch!!

the new one seems to copy the new macbook pro touch pad actions with multitouch etc.
#32
Stupid question maybe but is this availiable today or do you have to wait until tomorrow as it says 27th September deals? Some companies put them out early Im just not sure with Aldi as I have never really used them.
#33
I have managed to get an item the day before but usually it's dificult as apparently the managers arent authorised to sell before the due date. Well thats what the manager said in my store anyway. I wouldn't have thought these will sell instantly. Digressing but their base unit pcs seem to be difficult to shift these days often to the point where a few weeks later they discount them. Five years ago there were queues at the door and scrambling to get one opf the few available.
#34
I have been looking at the spec for this and the model number and dimensions all point towards the A6 model.

That Bamboo one is rubbish. The pen and pad have this smooth hard plastic which doesn't feel very nice in use.
#36
A lot of people have suggested they're not worth having if they're small and/or you're not using it for graphics work. They are a brilliant replacement for a mouse for pretty much anything but gaming. If you get RSI from using a mouse, give one of these a try,. I used one in work solidly for years. The position you have your wrist in is much better. I love my Wacom, it never leaves my desk, although I don't need to use it as much as I used to.

There are 3 models; pen, touch and both. Play.com is selling the new wacom bamboo pen for £49.99 pre-order.
#38
I feel like I should post this as a hot deal but im not sure ...i haven't really posted a hot deal before ..
If this is the new model - i would buy this instead..

Are these compatible with any laptop. And just a question to general users of tablets - are they easy to get use to?
#40
They work with any laptop. I have used the Wacom Intuo for several years it is probably smaller than this one. It works well but a bit on the small side. Works for handwriting recognition which is what I use it for. A slightly larger size will make it easier to use. But it may be a bit too small. But for the price, fun to use.
