    I've had a WACOM for about seven months. My only suggestion would be to get as big as you are comfortable putting on your desk (or lap for that matter). I typically only pull it out when I'm drawing, and I typically re-arrange the desk slightly (by pushing the keyboard further away so that typing on it almost becomes irritating) in order to have the tablet right in front of me.

    One comment: It takes some getting used to (hand-eye issues), but once that is resolved, you will never go back.

    I'm not too concerned about the hand-eye issues. I was a CAD draftsman for many years and used a puck for many of those so I'm expecting those old muscles to reactivate.

    Well, right on, with that:

    http://www.wacom.com/cintiq/21UX.cfm

    at $2500USD MSRP.


    ...Now all I have to do is find one at 1/10th the cost.

    While I could buy that, I don't think I will. As I mentioned, I don't want to go overboard and get something that I won't use all the features of. Even the next model down would be overkill I think not to mention I wouldn't want to lug that and a laptop around.

    What I'm looking more for are recommendations of features and use. For example, if you have one, are you satisfied with it or do you wish you got a different model and why?

    After researching and reading for about the last hour and a half I think I'm going to go with this one:
    http://direct.wacom.com/stores/5/Int...n_P1222C83.cfm

    That way I can also get the new version of PhotoShop and still pay off my Christmas present debt.

    Does anyone have an Intous3 and what do they think of it? Is it worth getting over the Graphire?

    No worries. Just tell me what you think of your Intous.

    I love it. Mine is A4 sized. If you want to do fine art stuff with long strokes then a bigger tablet is better. If not, then you can use a smaller one (e.g. A5 sized). As The Cartographist (whom I shall from now refer to as TC to save my poor typing fingers) said, if you get a bigger tablet you need space on the table for it and it means pushing the keyboard elsewhere. A smaller tablet is less of a problem.

    Found this comparison site that looks good: http://graphicssoft.about.com/od/abo...osgraphire.htm

    The I being considered a professional tool, and the G being a casual/prosumer tool, the big differences (I over G) are (picked from the referenced site):
    - Higher resolution results in smoother, more precise cursor movements.
    - Double the pressure sensitivity.
    - Tilt sensitivity.
    - 4 ExpressKeys (versus 2 on Graphire4).
    - Touch Strip (versus finger-operated scroll wheel on Graphire4).
    - A wide-format 6x11 size is available for multiple monitor and widescreen display users. (which would overcome my previous comment on the graphire)
