Quit being so cheap and buy the Intuos. It’s worth it. The other stuff is just rubbish. Keep your eyes peeled for a refurbished model, they’ll be very affordable — like half off of MSRP.

  1. Yeah, as the other guy said, you’re wasting your money on any other tablet apart from an intuos at the mo. And if you can afford a dual monitor setup and all those very expensive software programs and you say you’re a graphics artist why are you even considering anything else but an Intuos.

    But that aside, I use a 6×8 Intuos 3 and it suits all my needs in Photohop, Indesign etc etc. The size of the active work surface (6×8) maps one to one with your screen resolution. So top left corner on the tablet is top left corner on your monitor and same for the other corners respectively, well for Wacoms anyway. It’ll map to whatever your screen resolution is. Also, the size of your tablet affects the usability of the tablet, as a bigger tablet will mean larger hand and arm movements, which may or may not be suitable to your working style or the job at hand.
