I am getting a computer for my kids room. My daughter is really into drawing, and the computer I'm getting has a 64 bit vid card (hey, they are little). What I am trying to find out is where to buy those things that you plug into the computer and draw free hand on and then it shows up on the computer? Like a cheap old one but I dont know what they are called and neither does CL. Yes, mark this day on your calendar, I actually admitted to not knowing something.

Just for the record, I was never asked about this.

Of course I have no idea what they are called when I'm not asked. :p

Everyone knows that Mario is king shit, and donkey like you suck him off. Back to the record, I picked out a refurbished optiplex for them, it will be about 275:

No monitor, No OS, but it will have 512 ram, 64 bit agp graphics, P 4 2.0, CD RW

Which should be just fine for them, since it is only for doing research and homework and the most intense game they play is Age of Empires 3.

Yay!

BTW: The optiplex workstations are 35% off right now....run a google search on dell financial refurbished and it will pull up the site to get corporate leased systems from dell. older but pretty damn cheap.
