Why don't you consider getting a used Wacom from Amazon or local sale? I have a basic small Wacom Pen and Touch CTH-480 that has served me well and cost $100.00 new in Canada a few years ago. Your, USA, prices are usually 20% to 30% lower.
Wacom is not the best tool in the shed especially if you want divesity for use with different operating system. Over the years I found Wacom to poorly support a lot of Linux operating systems where I could not get the tablet to work.
From my personal experience the tablet that worked well with all operating systems was the Huion 690. Warning, the newer Huion tablets are a problem with Linux operating systems yet work well with Windows 10. Sometime in the future many Linux operating systems may through updates and upgrades of their operating systems add drivers that work well with Linux yet at this point today 09/18/20 the Linux drivers for pens such as the H610PRO V2 do not work on Debian or Fedora. The Huion 690 is a pen tablet and no longer available at Huion yet may be available with a diligent web internet search somewhere, there are probably some smaller electronics retailers out there that still have some in stock, or E-Bay.
That actually seems to check all my boxes, yeah! The drawing tablet I currently own is XP-Pen, too, so at least I won't have to worry about compatibility issues. I'll order it tonight, thank you so much!
Oh. I got confused by their advertising before, but looking at the official website does indicate that it can work on PC. Well, something to keep in mind in case I have to return the one I just bought for whatever reason. Thank you for clearing that up.
