Graphic tablets, right? I don't have a clue how a Nintendo DS works, but here's my two cents.
I got a little Wacom thing as an early birthday present from Liam last year, and it's been great so far. It takes a little bit of getting used to as far as estimating how big or small your sketching will turn out on the screen (not a problem if you use Illustrator, of course), but soon you'll want to name your first son after it. I think mine came down to a little under $100 US dollars. I think it was $140 Aussie dollars which converst to €84, and since the euro currently kicks your dollar's arse, you'd be looking at about $100 dollars US, wouldn't you?
Ahh, Wacom does the maths for me. I have this one
, and it is indeed about $100 (mine didn't have the mouse, though, so count yourself lucky).
Christ, that's a lot of money for a toy. Liam must like me.
