Dell Canada: $38 Off Wacom Bamboo Capture Pen Tablet Now $69.99

Pick up the fully loaded Wacom Bamboo Capture Pen Tablet, which includes Adobe Photoshop Elements and Autodesk Sketchbook Express, for only $69.99 at Dell Canada. That is $38 off their original price of $107.99.

I don’t put a lot of stock in Dell Canada’s original prices, as they seem a bit marked up to make the discounts look more impressive. So, I price compared with Future Shop which has this tablet for $89.99, and Amazon.ca which has this tablet on sale for $79.99. I am impressed that Dell is beating Amazon’s sale price, as Amazon generally doesn’t like to be beat. As far as I could find, Dell Canada certainly does have the cheapest price on this tablet, at least by $10.

What looking at different websites also showed me was how people rate the tablet. At Future Shop, the tablet has a 4.7/5 stars, which is absolutely huge with eighteen ratings. It seems the common theme was good value for their money. If they paid $20 more than most, certainly the Dell Canada deal is very good value for your money!

Dell Canada: $38 Off Wacom Bamboo Capture Pen Tablet Now $69.99Here is what a reviewer from Future Shop had to say:

This, I believe, is an entry level tablet which I find has very good quality. It may not be what a professional would want but as a student and a hobbyist I find it very suitable. I am using it on a university Fine Arts course and it fulfills the needs I have. I am quite happy with my purchase.

Enjoy free shipping on all items from Dell Canada. Woodchuck

Amazon.ca: Wacom Inkling Digital Sketch Pen for Only $179.99

Amazon.ca: Wacom Inkling Digital Sketch Pen for Only $179.99

It’s Christmas and your latte drinking, MacBook carrying, beret wearing, back-from-art-school-and–way-better-than-her-bourgie-parents daughter has been glaring daggers at you over her coil notebook for six days. What do you do? Why, buy her a gift that will make her wheat-grass-fed heart flutter, of course. Amazon.ca wants your daughter to once again hug you without rolling her eyes.

Julie, or Pierre, as she likes to be called now, just isn’t understood by her parents anymore. They don’t get how much she suffers for her art. Her teachers make her use these terrible Wacom Digitizer pads. Sure they put the images on her highly unpretentious MacBook Air, but it causes her to lose the soul of the drawing. Its spirit is trapped between layers of silicon. She needs to put pen to paper and imbue the inked lines with her artistic joie-de-vie.

A week passes and she has only said seventeen words to her parents. She’s been counting. Luckily today is Christmas morning which marks the midpoint of her time back home. She will be free again in seven short days. What’s this? A gift with a bow? How upper crust of them. It’s probably a pair of socks. Socks were born of a fascist regime. Fine, let’s get this over with.

“What… Is this?” Pierre stammers as she pulls the Wacom MDP123 Inkling Digital Sketch Pen from the torn open wrapping paper. She looks up at her parents, tears beginning to rim her eyes and lunges at them, arms flung wide.

Her Mother flinches back and her Dad tries to put his body between that of his wife and Pierre, his daughter. Pierre crashes into them both before her father can properly deflect her.

“Mom, Dad! I love it and I love you. You’re the greatest ever!!” Her arms wrap around their necks as she pulls them in for a tight hug.

This touching scene could grace your house Christmas morning if you get a Wacom Inkling for your daughter Pierre. It’s quite a cool device. It basically copies what you are writing on paper, as you are sketching it, and puts it on the computer. The price is great and it ships for free from Amazon.ca. Make sure you get it soon so you get it delivered before Christmas!

These are some of the features:

  • Sketch your ideas on standard paper or sketchbooks while capturing a digital likeness of your sketch
  • Store hundreds of sketches on the Inkling receiver before transferring them to your Mac or PC via USB
  • Export your layered sketches from the included Inkling Sketch Manager software into Adobe Photoshop
  • Save your sketches from the Inkling Sketch Manager in the following formats; JPG, BMP, TIFF, PNG, SVG or PDF
  • Layers button on the receiver allows you to add layers to the digital file while sketching on paper
