Default Aldi foods and Stylus Tablets

When the hell did this happen??? Aldi now carries computer and stylus tablets..

sounds odd right?.. Medion 12x9 graphics tablets with pen and mouse in aldi.... for only $40. for 40 bucks i can use it for a dinner tray if it sucks... I bought one. sat down and plugged it in and it rocks as good as the older large sized wacoms. the software doesnt work with xp though but DAMN for $40 you cant complain. The pen and mouse construction are shabby but work great. dont step on them lol.

Sounds like a good deal..

How's the pressure and/or tilt sensitivity or is there any?

i got a 12"-9" tablet from Aldi too. My dad picked it up on his way through. He heard me talking about them. It was only $35 here. Maybe because they had so many of them. But yeah. I havent used it yet but it seems liek it will be great... I hope it works with XP though.

no. finally hooked mine up after reading this. Worked perfectly with xp, no downside as i can see. and the wireless mouse and pen that came with it dont interact negetively with my usb mouse at all. Its all kosher.
