Excerpt: I've been using the Wacom Bamboo tablet now for a week now, and I have to say that for the most part, I'm happy with it. I've used competing companies' graphics tablets before, and I'm surprised by the superior performance of this little tablet.
Conclusion: Then there's the navigation aspect; the idea that the Bamboo will replace your normal computing tasks that would otherwise fall to mousing and keyboard shortcuts. It took us some time to get used to the fact that the Bamboo's tiny input area represents the entire display screen in an absolute sense.
Pros: Tricky to do larger pen strokes, Gets grimy quite easily, Navigation not always as precise as needed
Cons: Very portable, Mac/Windows compatibility, Good pricing
