I received a graphics tablet several years ago as a gift, but didn't use it much. I do a lot of artwork on the PC but my tablet is long gone (seems to have disappeared though I still have the driver disc).
I'm looking to get an inexpensive tablet to try things out again and see if I like it. If I do, I have no problem spending another $200 bucks to get a higher-end model, but if I don't I don't want to be out so much.
I have two questions from a technical standpoint:
How do a tablet and mouse work together? I've seen models that come with a mouse, but I'm unsure that it's necessary to have to buy a new one just so it matches. Do these models hork the computer's mouse driver so you have to use their mouse, or can I buy a tablet not packaged with a mouse and expect it to work okay?
Second, I'm using Vista 32-bit and plan to upgrade to Windows 7 64-bit in a few weeks. I've seen reviews going back to 2004 so some of the models have been around a while and I want to be sure it's going to work. I know I can go to the manufacturer's website for info and drivers, but if anyone is aware of any gotchas I'd love to hear them.
I'm also open to any other information or experience anyone may have.
