I bought my son a new computer yesterday. He starts college this fall, and he needed something better.
But his old computer wasn’t dead – just sick. A new hard drive and a fresh Windows XP install made it a fine platform for my daughter to use… but she was missing something – a Wacom Tablet.
She can use it. As much as I love it I am programmed already – I can’t re-learn 20+ years of mousing to use a stylus. She can – and has. So I gave her my beloved Wacom tablet. I know she’ll make good use of it.
If you have a child that has any computer skills at all, and any artistic skills – buy them a Wacom tablet. Let them truly express themselves!
