No worries. 🙂 Once you are able to purchase a tablet to begin with, you might want to look into the Turcom 8″ x 5″ Pro Graphic Drawing Tablet (https://www.amazon.com/Turcom-Graphic-Drawing-Capture-Sensitive/dp/B008Y40DQU) – it’s relatively cheap and an art channel I follow recommended it for beginners though I do not have experience with using it. From what I’ve heard, it’s very good for it’s price but it has its faults and bugs.
Yes, it’s ok to buy a cheap-ish tablet, especially if you’re a hobbyist. I’m currently using the Turcom TS-6580 and it’s fine. I used to have a small Wacom Bamboo tablet that I liked a lot, but it broke. I don’t really notice a big difference in quality, although I did like the slimmer and battery-free pen that my Bamboo had. My only actual complaint about the Turcom is that I feel like I have to press a little hard, even with sensitivity turned up, but it’s great otherwise.
It’s up to you what kind of tablet you want to buy. There’s nothing wrong with most of your options. Still, if you can afford it, it’s generally recommended that you get a Wacom. They usually come with better software too.
Keep in mind that it takes a while to get the hang of drawing with a tablet, so don’t get too discouraged right away with whatever you chose.
The most common response will be a Bamboo, though I’ve been using a Turcom TS-6580 for about half a year now, and I love it; haven’t had any problems with it at all, and it’s relatively inexpensive as well for its size.
