waiting on the 27th for the major discounts. Wondering if it'll stack with the business account fee/tax waivers.
What drawing tablet and art program?

As for art program, I've been using paint tool Sai for maybe 5 years and I still love it. It makes for great lineart and it's pretty cheap. I think it runs for 30 or 40 dollars but I believe it also allows you to download it to 2 other computers.

i went with the cheaper model as i'm still not sure if i'm willing to fully commit to digital media. I'd rather waste 80 than to waste 300.

Since you're new to digital media, I would also high recommend heading over to CTRL Paint. He post amazing art videos on traditional and digital media. Unfortunately, most of his videos are done in Photoshop, but his techniques should translate to other programs. Also, there is the added bonus of worksheets to practice the techniques demonstrated in his videos.
When trying out your tablet, keep in mind that it is missing out on a few important key functions. For example, there is no top eraser, pen sensitivity is relatively lower, and no angled pen control. To be honest, since i started using a tablet myself, the transition was hard to grasp at first. Even now I still feel that disconnect of not having my hand on the paper. For myself, this is one of the main reasons I am considering getting a cintiq in the future!

Well i think you should try those most known softwares (SAI, ps, sketchbook pro, corel painter, fire alpaca...) and see which feels better for you.
It doesnt really matter what you use, in my opinion...you'll find decent artists using all of those...
I, for example, can't work with SAI. I think sketchbook pro and ps are more comfortable...idk they just feel better to me...
Can't help you tablet wise since my knowledge is limited to wacom...i have an intuos pro small...i think it is pretty decent and wasn't expensive (around $250 usd)...
