The bad side really has nothing to do with the tangible product but more with the software that comes with it.
I can’t use two of the programs because my computer is too old and you need windows 7. You only have a limited amount of time to use them, so if the boyfriend gets his new computer soon I may just put the program on his computer. Also, you have to download the programs from the Wacom site. You have ONE shot to download it so if your internet goes out, electricity or any other issue that would stop the download YOU ARE BEAT and can’t try to download them again. Obviously this could be a huge problem for someone who doesn’t have any programs at all.
