I bought a large Monoprice tablet: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10841&cs_id=1084102&p_id=6814&seq=1&format=1#largeimagePros:Extremely affordable for all sizes ($20-45)sensitive and accurategood driver support (uses UC-Logic Drivers)(It works for me on Windows and Linux)Works well for me with Gimp and MyPaintCons:Pen uses a battery and may be bulky for some peoplenot sure about the support for Mac, I think some people have an easy solution for it to worknot wacom?It has really good reviews and comes in a bunch of different sizes . I would recommend one of these as a first tablet because it is such a small investment. This is the only tablet I've used so I can't compare it to others.I bought one and I don't regret it. I would definitely consider this tablet and look at all the reviews for it. I guess there are a lot of people who swear by the Monoprice brand for their quality and customer service.
