Now I got lucky and won a competition in my college. I was supposed to get another tablet, the same one I had lost but an intuos4. Happy me! Except... wacom apparently never delivered. So a few months after the loss I finally got it myself =)
I must say, it's a very pretty little thing. The new texture of the tablet will have to wait until I get used to it before I really enjoy it. From what I read they were trying to imitate the feel of graininess from real paper... I'm used to a nice smooth surface.
I'm off to try my new toy.
