Graphics/Drawing Tablet?

So I've seen a lot of REALLY cool pictures drawn with a graphics tablet and I'm looking to buy one. What brand is best? I have a mac, so it would have to be compatible. How do they work? Are they worth the money? I'm doing some research online right now about them but I still don't know everything.

Any recommendations? I'd love to get one. I may hint at this to my boyfriend... you know valentine's day is coming up! :P

I use a Wacom Bamboo Tablet, it costed about $80, I've had it for almost 2 years. I'm not sure if its compatible with Mac. As for programs, I use Adobe Photoshop, I've also used GIMP (which is a free downloadable art program, but can be confusing to use).

You'll want a Wacom, no questions asked. If you're just looking to get into tablets, I suggest the Bamboo. Wacom provides the driver free, and it'll be matched to your tablet.

As for software, what are you working with? PC or Mac?

I have a mac. I looked up all the brands and just like you guys said, Wacom wins! I found the Bamboo for $60 on amazon. It is compatible with mac. So I can still do digital drawings with this tablet?

Yes, you can do digital drawings with that tablet.

Program wise, I'd go with Adobe Photoshop. You should be able to search for a free trial using google. You can also google tutorials for using tablets.
