    And a stylus to do your photoshops? How does it work?
    Its got to be better than a plain old mouse on a mouse pad right?

    Especially for creating paths and detailed line work.

    Thinking about getting one off of ebay new, for half price.

    Just curious if its worth it.

    Thanks,

    My youngest has a Wacom tablet. One of the cheaper ones. She does a lot of my little pony drawings. (Yes I know she is a bronie but she hasn't asked to go to a convention yet). She loves it. Granted she uses it on a pc but I am sure it is just the same on our macs.

    Probably a Wacom Bamboo - good but the Monoprice ones are half the price and better.

    I tested this out for you. Its not as good as a Wacom tablet but its not to bad. Get a good capacitive stylus and try it out.

    Works good once you get used to it.

    I've had one for a while, and I love it. You really come to rely on the gestures.

    Buy a real computer. Apple is for hipsters and faggits.

    Calm down there champ. Apple makes the best computer hardware in the business. Best display, build quality, keyboard, trackpad etc... and if you don't like OS X just install Windows since all the hardware is fully supported.
