Wacom BambooGraphics tablets have always been rather niche, despite Wacom’s best efforts over the years to mass market them.

The Bamboo is the latest attempt to sell graphics tablets to non-graphics professionals. It’s small, basic, and cheap. The latter being the most important factor going for it, if you ask us.

The Bamboo tablet features a 5.8″x3.7″ active area and includes a stylus with 512 levels of pressure sensitivity. Which is about 510 more than a crayon.

If you have kids in the house or want to play with your photos, the Bamboo is a no brainer for around $63 shipped from Amazon (retail is $79).

If you’d like a mouse and some software included, the Bamboo Fun has you covered for about $93 shipped. We think it’s a waste, though: the software consists of older versions of popular applications and you already have a perfectly good mouse.

If you want a bigger area, though, the Bamboo Fun does come in a Medium size with an 8.5″x5.3″ active area. But it will also set you back almost $180. Watch out for bamboo splinters!
