My ancient Wacom Tablet has finally died (I can't get drivers for it, & the pressure sensitivity is shot), so I've had to break down & hunt for a new replacement. I went to my local Best Buy, & after looking at several models, all of which were too big or had too many bells & whistles for my needs, I brought home an Intuos tablet. Got home, unplugged my old tablet, & unpacked the new one. I realized immediately I would have a problem, looking at the USB cable. The new tablet's was 3 feet long, where my old one was at least 5 & a half feet. Here enlies my conundrum: I can't make the cable reach to physically plug in the new tablet, so it's worthless to me. I looked online just now at another model I'd bookmarked (http://www.wacom.com/en/us/creative/intuos-manga), specifically looking for the cable length. It isn't listed. Now I'm worried that whatever I buy will fall short, disallowing me from plugging the stupid thing in! So, here are my specifications:
- Must be a SMALL tablet to fit on my computer desk; the old one is 8"x7 1/2" & fits perfectly
- Must have a cable that is at least 5 1/2' long to loop it around the back of the computer desk
- Must be suitable for drawing lineart/freehand pressure-sensitive drawing; I don't need much else
So, anyone got any suggestions for where I go from here? I really miss my old tablet, & I just want one that's like it, & won't require either a significant learning curve or my shelling out big bucks.
