Tablet ok but software bundle missing Photoshop Elements 11

Summary: The Bamboo graphics tablet was sold with three items of software that came as downloads with serial numbers supplied by email. I managed to download two of the items of software successfully but the third, Adobe Photoshops Element 11, has not downloaded. The email containing the serial key to validate the software states that the download is only valid until 02.48 on 7th October (in a few hours time). I have emailed both Wacom and Adobe but have received no replies.
Summary: We bought this as we wanted an affordable entry level graphics tablet. After looking at different models, we decided upon this one as it came with a software package that we also wanted; artrage 4. When the item arrived it was in a box marked up as the bamboo create, with a sticker over the barcode saying bamboo fun. After a quick google we discovered that it is the same model, but the 'create' is the american name for the UK's 'fun' range.
Summary: This installed easily and worked without any hitches from the start...... but, for what it does it's pricey especially if you don't want or need the bundled software. It also features an annoying little programme called Bamboo dock which acts as a container for desktop icons.... if you have a desktop its rather unnessessary. There are cheaper alternatives.
Summary: Bought this to utilise both the Touch facility and the benefits of the Pen when editing photos'. Will not repeat what has already been written about this great little product except that there are still Bamboo Dock issues when used with Mac OSX 10.8.2. Mountain Lion. This feature did not load properly and thought this may have been due to the disc being marked and scratched which I found very surprising considering the repute that amazon have in the market place.
