Yeah, heheh, I got my first version of Photoshop by less-than-legal means? I'm using CS6 right now because it's got the features I need without the stupid cloud-subscription service. I mean...come on. I do find that the Intuos I have now has a lot more sensitivity than the Bamboo I was using. When I tried drawing on the Bamboo again, it was much more jittery and inexact. However, the Bamboo really does everything you need--and no doubt the technology has improved since I bought mine what, seven years ago? My life goal is to have a Cintiq, but there is no way I can justify spending a minimum of $900 on a tablet I use occasionally! My heart says "it's so cool!" and my brain says "wtf no."
