Wacom Bamboo Fun medium. If you can spare a few extra dollars, get the Intuos3 4x6.

The digitizer simply isn't sensitive enough. But I'm ambitious that way. [smile] (Plus, it's gadget porn!)

 Possibly not an option if you want to do really high end 3d though.

I want to do really high-end 2D.

Better get saving then. If you get one, post pics so we can all drool over it. [grin]

Exactly. People get so used to seeing the whole picture on the display - its hard to revert back to drawing on the picture itself, or so they say.

seems like odd reasoning to me, but whatever you say ;-)

Oh, I will, but don't hold your breath. There are several purchases ahead of it in the queue (like a 20" iMac Core 2 Duo, and a couple of CS3 apps).

Of course, the other thing you need to consider is that tablet PCs can be uncomfortable to use for extended periods of time because of the warmth of the processor -- not something I anticipated when I purchased mine.

My girlfriend bought a Wacom Bamboo Fun a few days ago, and she's very nice (the tablett). Originally I bought for myself a Trust TB-4200 A4 size but it's really to large, A6 are cooler than I had to think.

Warning about Bamboos Fun : Not currently supported on a Linux. But who would to do graphism on a Linux system :) ?

ps: don't hesitate to correct my english ^^.

I purchased a blue medium bamboo fun last week. \$205 with shipping. I don't have a whole lot of experience with the full featured wacoms but this one is quite nice. I hadn't noticed the high pitched whine before reading this thread. I can't hear it unless my head is within a couple inches of the tablet. I thought it was my linksys router. I also discovered that I can't hear the whine out of my left ear. Stupid TMJ.
