Well I use a G-Pen F610, it works great and is pressure sensitive, it works on both Mac and PC and it's only around $70 - $150 which isn't bad for a tablet at all.

You could probably find it at Tiger Direct, Best Buy or Future Shop.

I don't have all that much info, but it's served me really well over the years. Smile

Oh haha, oops I just saw this topic today. Sorry for the long reply.

I would follow yoshi's advice, just to test out the waters and get used to using a tablet. It is an awkward switch from real life to digital. Then upgrade to something if you're really being serious about art.

_

Read this if you consider it to be a serious hobby, or if you consider getting a freelance job
This page will help you: http://icrit.org/tablets.html however it only talks about Wacom tablets. Wacom has the best tablets out there as of now, but they're very expensive too.

Just some things pertaining to art:
If you really wanna improve (since you said you're a beginner), go ahead and read the articles this site has (very useful):
http://icrit.org/resources.html
-by the way, if you click on any of the links, it will just send you to a online book you can read you dont have to pay.

Just keep in mind what Evil said about the transition from Paper to Digital.
It's an extremely big change.

That said have fun playing around with it! Very Happy
