First of all, I hope this is the correct place to post this, if not, please report it to be moved. I am looking at getting a Wacom tablet for use in my creative design and advertising papers at university (mainly using Photoshop and Illustrator). I only want the basic pen model as I am fairly good at using keyboard shortcuts, so I don't need extra buttons on the tablet itself. That said, I have a few questions: 1) What is Wacoms release schedule like? Are they fairly predictable like Apple, or do the releases come at random? 2) Anything you think a first-time tablet buyer should know? 3) Has anyone here bought a tablet for design and found it difficult to get used to?
