I'v e had a wacom tablet for years, robust and works well with Vista and Windows 7 hand recognition. So easy to use. Installed instantly. Even had to use it on Linux the other day, true plug and play.
I carry it in my laptop everyday and it still looks like new. I have had 2 computers since which look battered and bruised so if this one dies I will definitely get another.
A pretty good price if you need one.

Is it any good as mouse replacement for web browsing etc?

I use one with my Mac at work. Once you get used to it, you'll won't want to go back to using a mouse.

Good price!

does this have handwriting recognition?

I use it as a mouse often. It does not have hand writing recognition, but windows Vista and windows 7 both have hand writing recognition (do a search for recognition and you will find it, it also works nicely on Windows Journal, just type journal into the start search box (you probably never even knew that programme existed)) and there are numerous other programmes out their that support it.

Thanks for the advice. Ordered one. Gets very good reviews on Amazon.

No. It's a graphics tablet, not a mouse / touchpad

These are 100% fine to use with a Mac? I like the idea of trying to use one. Maybe I can create some better graphics.

I have a wacom bamboo and it's awesome, it's mad how good your drawing can look digitally.

I'd be shocked if it wasn't compatible with Macs as it is a popular design tool.

It could be used instead of a mouse to browse the web but it wouldn't be advantageous so it wouldn't be worth buying if it was just for that purpose.

According to amazon this is an old model. Newer version is called Wacom Bamboo Pen Graphics Tablet and its priced at 46.90 on amazon.

Yep the One got discontinued a while ago, the current Bamboo pen, pen & touch offer more features together with double the pen pressure sensitivity (1024 vs 512 levels). Not worth getting the One for approx £10 saving imho

That is an awesomely brilliant program, Sir. Thank you.
It can even read and recognise my awful handwriting! That is amazing.

The reason why this pad is discontinued is because it's 4:3 and so if you've got a widescreen monitor it goes faster up and down that it does left to right so everything you draw is squashed unless you concentrate....

I thought that the RRP of this was £39.99 anyway.

£49.99 for the brand new version with widescreen aspect ratio play.com/PC/…tml

Excellent graphics tablet. Works really well under both Vista and XP. Software you get with it is really good too. For it's price it's a steal! Recommend it to anyone.

The amazon one, (amazon.co.uk/dp/…236?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&tag=****&linkCode=asn&creative=22206&creativeASIN=B002Q4U4AE) is this the same as the play one for 49.99? Are you sure this Amazon one has increased sensitivity?

wacom.com/bam…php if you go into 'Technical Stuff' it has the same sensitivity 512 pressure levels. I think it's only the Pen & Touch that has 1024 pressure levels.

There must be a setting in the driver to fix that?? I would expect you to be able to match the aspect ratio of your screen, even if it means not using the entire tablet.

I've just looked in the online manual for the latest version and there's a 'force proportions' setting in the software for use with 4:3 monitors, no reason why there shouldn't be the opposite on this one.
Aha:
wacom.eu/_bi…pdf page 27. It's already the size of a postcard, I hope that it's big enough with a deadzone.
