So .... um ....... can someone enlighten me here? I always thought tablets were the last word when it comes to making/refining selections in Elements/Photoshop/whatever, and that was their main strength. Am I to understand that they also perform most actions that would normally be undertaken by a mouse, except they do it so much better?

Yes Bob, to just about all of that.

Whether or not they do it so much better though is subjective; the jury's out.

I find that a mouse is better for word processing and a Wacom better for imaging.

NOTE!

Read very carefully the product information.!

Some of these " Wacom " tablets are the " Touch Only " variety, They are not " Stylus " compatible, Nor are they supplied with one.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So don't be in a big hurry to bag a bargain unless, You think your fingers are as accurate as a stylus..Grin

This also explains the apparently low price, Not sumfin Wacom are renowned for.

Touch only tablets are a bit of a joke if you ask me, Darn gimmicks are everywhereTongue

Very good point - and it looks like the Play one in the OPs link is exactly that, touch only.
