Tablet suggestions

Postby Flint the Dwarf » Wed May 02, 2012 1:13 pm

I'm in the market for a tablet and am looking for suggestions from anyone who's used them before.

We (my brother and I) are looking to use a tablet to create something similar to motion comics with music that we write. I've never used a tablet before, so I'm kinda new to all of this. This isn't going to be a professional endeavor, per se, but we would like similar capabilities for a moderate price (no more than $300). The flipside is that we want it to be useable for my 5-year-old niece, so durability is another consideration.

I'd appreciate any input from people who've used tablets before.

Only advice I can offer there from my tablet experience is your budget is going to massively limit you.

Seriously, she's FIVE and you wanna get her a tablet? How many expensive handheld electronic things would you have broken when you were five? It's not like the things are built like GameBoys and can survive a trip down a flight of stairs or something.

Think of something else to get her. Seriously.

Are we talking graphics tablet or iPad-like tablet?

Graphics tablet.

We want to make something like AMVs but with our own art and music.

Look into the Wacom Intuos line then. They have some <$300 models that should work just fine.
