Maybe wait until there's a sale? Depending on where you are (ie, if you're in the US or not) sometimes sites will have black friday sales. Also keep in mind wacom tablets are pretty solid. I have an old one I got back in the late 90's, and it still works like a charm on Windows 7.
Using Digital Tables for collaborative learning tasks is an emerging research field for both educationalists and interaction designers. The benefits of collaboration on learning are well documented, and the affordance of a shared tabletop interface encourage peer based interaction. However, most studies of this kind concentrate on using a single table with a single group of engaged learners, where teachers and researchers can easily monitor the activity. The reality of most learning scenarios, the classroom is not considered.
I have an Adesso Ultra Slim graphics tablet, and it only cost me 80$ (USD). It's easy to use, and big. It's worked pretty well for me, but of course it's my first tablet so I haven't used others. I like it though :3

I recommend you to look (while buying) that it should be Wifi able for later. I bought my wacom bamboo pen (green package) for 60€. But i forgot to look if it has that since i didnte knew there was a diffrence. the BLUE package of that one has it. mine not TuT it doesnt bothers but for later is you want to draw wireless it is helpfull. As for tablet, the splash is not compatible with the wireless kit. It may be bothersome just to tell you this because of that but believe me, it wont regret buying it but it will be a bit bothersome later. I would recommend (as for a cheap/good one) the bamboo pen & touch hope i could help
