I was cruising around eBay for a graphics tablet and was wondering what (if any) advantage does the newer Wacom Bamboo have vs the older model Graphire.

I am sorry to see this post so late. You probably bought your tablet by now. :S
I don't know about Graphire because I use the Intuos model. I did have a short "encounter" with the Bamoboo. I must say that the Bamoboo is very good in terms of precision and all that. It is probably almost as good as the Intuos. The difference is that it has less configurable buttons and it it much smaller. I guess that it is advertised as a 'fun" tablet, rather than a serious one. Although if you ask me, it doesn't lack in quality, and it certainly is MUCH better than any of the competition in that rank. Now, if you want to be REALLY serious, you should buy the Cintiq models, but those are REALLY expensive too because they are practically monitors by themselves.
I hope this helps.Alex

Thanks for posting Alex.
Yes, I awoke Christmas morning and there was a new Wacom Bamboo Fun (like the silver one here) waiting for me. Not bad at all. The surface area leaves something to be desired. It comes with Photoshop Elements 5 and Corel Painter Essentials 3. Response time seems right on and overall design is good. Actually, it is probably a good thing that it is a smaller tablet. I don't have a lot of room next to my keyboard on my desk. I highly recommend it for the price. The software alone is worth it. I can easily see myself moving into a more professional model someday, but I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in testing their skills.
