For those looking to get their feet wet with a Wacom pen tablet, but not looking to make an Intuos-sized investment, the company’s Bamboo family has been a solid choice. The outfit has now added one more option to the entry-level peripheral line with the Splash. Sporting hardware identical to the Connect tablet that’s already available, the latest offering includes an updated software duo in the same box. Art Rage Studio offers painting that’ll keep your shiny new MacBook Pro clean while Sketchbook Express provides tools for good ol’ sketching. In case you need a refresher on the Bamboo accessory’s specs, the pen tab plays nice with both Windows and Mac, offers a 5.8 x 3.6 inch active area, USB connectivity and a pen that touts 1,024 pressure levels. The good news is that the new bundle won’t cost you a penny more, as the kit will remain priced at $79. Truth be told, the Splash is actually a solid pick-up for someone looking to test drive a graphics tablet without committing a larger sum of cash.
