I need a tablet. In that must-get-it-soon-or-my-brain-will-implode kind of way. I'm going to get a Graphire 2, I think... problem: Windows NT does not support USB ports. The computer HAS them, they just don't DO anything. :annoyed: (and no, it's not my fault that I'm using NT, the comp ain't mine)

So now what? Is there an adapter? A serial port version? I've seen people saying that serial tablets are too fussy and glitchy to be worth it-- I sure hope that ain't true.

I don't think any of the Graphire 2 are sold with a serial port.

Serial port Intuos 1 were a bit more problematic and don't work with macs, which reduces the resale value, that's all i know. I wouldn't buy one now, although they are rather cheap on ebay. Maybe consider installing a second harddrive into that computer and boot into win2k or XP pro.

Garrrgh!! I can barely afford the Graphire in the first place, now I have to get a new hard drive and/or an Intuos?! Is there no mercy or justice in the world?! :cry:
