Digital illustrators and graphic designers are no doubt familiar with tablets, the non-iPad desktop digital pen. But did you know they're pretty versatile machines? A bunch of the tablets on the market today are compatible with a stylus pen and just your own two fingers, making a high-end Wacom tablet a heck of a lot more useful piece of tech than Apple's Magic Trackpad.

Whether you're using a drawing tablet for illustration or just as a multi-function mouse, the big bulky piece is no doubt difficult to work around. But here are five home office setups that make tablets work in small spaces:
