Quick Query Response – Re: silver Bamboo tablet matching the Macbook Pro’s colour

I don’t know why WordPress.com doesn’t let you post pictures in the comment replies section. Perhaps I’m just not doing it right.  Oh well. 

In response to your question about the colour of the silver Wacom tablet matching the MacBook Pro, I would say:

Yes! It matches pretty much perfectly.

Unfortunately, my Macbook Pro is away for repairs after a complete hard drive failure -I am getting it fixed by Apple for free as it is under Apple Care and they admitted that the way it failed was clearly a mechanical failure- otherwise I would send you a picture of how well it matches.

But I have done the next best thing! I have borrowed my friend’s Macbook Air (which is the same colour as my Macbook Pro) and taken a few pictures of them next to each other.  I would say that the tablet is a miniscule fraction darker but it’s an almost indistinguishable difference.  But have a look at the photographic evidence, and see what you think.  It’s also useful if you want to check the size (this is a 13″ Macbook Air).

How I Chose my Wacom Bamboo Tablet + Thoughts after 3 weeks of using the Wacom Bamboo Fun Pen and Touch

About a year ago I decided that, although I am not a professional artist, I was ready to take the next step and purchase a graphics tablet.  But as graphics tablets are a rather expensive treat (especially in a time of recession) I decided to spend a year saving for it.  I therefore had a looooong time to do my research. 

To all those who are trawling sites and forums sifting every single dreg of information they possibly can:

I have been there, I have done that, and I have got the T-shirt, or rather, in this case, the graphics tablet. 

My first problem was that I didn’t know anyone who had a graphics tablet so I didn’t really know where to start.  So after reading countless recommendations for “first tablet” “tablet for beginners” “tablets for amateur artists” etc. I found that overall the Wacom Bamboo series had the most recommendations. 

But here I encountered my first problem.  I found that the highest number of recommendations within the Wacom Bamboo series went to the Bamboo Create, the Bamboo Capture, the Bamboo Pen and Touch, and the Bamboo Fun Pen and Touch (small and medium versions). 

But nowhere could I find any people who reviewed the Bamboo Create AND the Bamboo Fun Pen and Touch!!

It seems silly that I did not make the obvious connection at the time, which is, of course, they are the same graphics tablet!!!  Yes, it’s true.  The bundled software may be different but the tablet and its features are the same.  Continue reading
