    Tablets make me wish I’d spent more time on my handwriting in school…

  2. My fiancee and I would use this capture tablet for school and for doing digital graphics for web sites including both for profit and charity work for customers, friends, and family. We would use it mostly with GNU/Linux and GIMP because we prefer it to Windows or Mac for its stability, capabilities, and consistency (especially the KDE Desktop Environment). My fiancee has her degree in Fine Art from Chicago Art Institute as well as a background in medical and is studying forensic science so this would help her with art and with diagramming/presentations for her forensic science classes. In addition, if I have to tweak any of the drivers to work now or in the future, I will release my patches back to the community as Free Software.

  3. I would most likely use it in GIMP. I do mostly Video work, but I use GIMP to create some graphics for my videos. I’m also curious to see how well it would work in something like Blender 3D. I’m also wondering if I would be able to design a game in Blender that could be played with the Bamboo.

  4. Craig J. Ruthsatz says:

    I would use it to learn and have access that is portable and easy to use.

  5. Charlyne Lees says:

    I am just starting out as a photographer and don’t have a lot of funds. I would use this for photo editing and graphic design!

  6. Chuck Saint says:

    i would use this tablet for AutoCAD and image editing through Photoshop

  7. Marshall Im says:

    I would gift it to a special, artistic person in my life. I hope she might learn something new about creating art with a computer. Not taking anything away from her drawings and crafts, the device seems like it could help me find some common ground between her interest in art and my interest in computers.

  8. Ken Riggleman says:

    This would be a gift for a neighbor who has been a tremendous help over the years, and would appreciate a tablet like this.

  9. Anne Edwards says:

    The tablet would be used in our non profit agency EDGE to support fututre leaders in equal access to technology.!

  10. It would be a gift for my wife. She would know how to use it more than I would.

  11. Calvin Beals says:

    Do not have a web site as yet but plan to do so in the near future as I add services to a new service. This product would be ideal for the Services Business, Consulting and working with my 17 year old grand daughter in helping her get ready for the professional career she is planning to go for. This is exciting to be in an opportunity to be in a leading product and service. Calvin Beals

  12. Roxanne says:

    Oh this is so cool! I would love to own one of these if only for art purposes.

  13. Vin Faris says:

    This looks like a tool I would use to enhance PowerPoints and other training materials for the classes I teach. It would also be an excellent example to use as a demonstrator for my students.

  14. Beth Petit says:

    I think it would be great to have the latest technology/tools to learn and use. The college boys here would find use for it also… It would likely be handy for some of their projects.

  15. Madeline says:

    I’d give this to my daughter since she loves to draw and is quite the artist.

  16. Karl Peschel says:

    I used a Wacom Graphire years ago and loved it. Have considered getting a Bamboo for a while now. Just haven’t pulled the trigger!

    As a professional photographer I spend many hours at a time in Photoshop and Lightroom. Using a mouse to make selections, use brushes, or the Patch and Healing tools is sometimes a nuisance. I know using a tablet and pen make these and other tasks much easier. Would be great to save time and money by winning this.

    A tablet would also prove useful in Evernote as I’m becoming more addicted to that app! Thanks Penguin for sponsoring this giveaway.

  17. Darryl Lee says:

    I’d give this to my wife. She’s an amazing artist!

  18. I am just a teenager, i know that’s not much. But i recently broke my first bamboo tablet i got. It lived for about 1 1/2 months, then died. I am really into digital art and graphic design, but i can’t do much without my tablet anymore ~
    just signing up for a chance [:
    I don’t check my email account much, sorry. But you can always send me a note on my tumblr ~

  19. Tyme says:

    I would probably use it with GIMP to do artwork. I love sketching, but the work from changing a pencil sketch to a cleaned up digital version has proved challenging and time consuming. It is aggravating to try to line artwork properly with a laptop trackpad. I feel like this would do wonders for expanding my horizons.

    Thanks for offering this opportunity. :)

  20. Tony Vila says:

    I would use this to help my kids (homeschooled) to develop their artistic expression.

  21. Jim Lipscomb says:

    I would love to use this for art and online comics

  22. Carlos Raider says:

    Whoa, this is such an awesome giveaway! I’m a freelance designer, and winning this would be a great help especially when working on those tricky projects that require precision and pointer “maneuvers” that only a pen tablet can provide. Count me in and hoping to win! :)

  23. charles hand says:

    I would give it to my daughter Alexandria ‘
    she would make good use of it.

  24. Mike says:

    I’m not the most artistic of people but I’d love to play with this regardless.

  25. Courtney Harris says:

    It will definitely be a gift for myself and would be used to mostly drawing. That it until I work out all the other cool features.

  26. Laura Reed says:

    I love this! The tablet interface dynamic changes EVERYTHING!

  27. Tiffany Duong says:

    I would use the Wacom Bamboo tablet to draw and sketch on the computer. It would make drawing on the computer so much more easy. I would be able to try different techniques on a whole new platform.

  28. Asher Santos says:

    I’d finally decide whether I want to major/minor in graphic design. I’ve been waiting to pull the trigger for years.

  29. Van Ly says:

    I’d definitely use it for digital drawing. I’ve always wanted a tablet, and having one would mean that I could explore more into it than a mouse. Usually I scan my pictures and then I have to do a lot of clean up to get rid of pixels to make it nice and neat. Then I color with different layers and so on. I’d love to have a tablet to help ease out on the process and explore more into being able to do things I haven’t before.

  30. Aubrey Lewis says:

    I’d use this to help with my digital drawing. Using my laptop’s trackpad is kind of a drag and I’ve always wanted a graphics tablet so this would be perfect.

  31. Liz Simms says:

    This is a great opportunity! If I had the tablet I’d use it to create some digital art. I have basic experience in an old copy of Photoshop and I have quite a few images in my head I’d like to express.

    I have this great idea for a comic, and I’d like for it to be in color, but the best material I can use for coloring is color pencil, which is lame. I’d love to use digital coloring techniques to finish the comic and make it look perfect so I can share it with the world. This would be amazing for me. ^_^ Good luck to everybody!
