The simply named Bamboo is best suited to home office or workplace use, says Wacom. While the drawing, painting and photo-editing uses are still there, you can also use the graphics tablet for daily tasks such as browsing the internet and making notes.
New multitouch functionality is a big bonus, as along with the sleek ergonomic pen, the Bamboo now provides two ways to interact with your Mac. That said, the multitouch options are currently restricted to two-finger gestures and require practice to master well enough to stop reaching for the mouse or keyboard.
The ability to scroll, zoom, rotate and flip, make marks and erase them, and switch effortlessly from pen to multitouch input makes the Bamboo a versatile input device, although it won’t yet replace the traditional mouse-and-keyboard combo just yet.
