    Saw they were advertising quite a few on their website. Haven't logged in yet to check prices. Anyone know about these models or checked the prices?

    I have an old Wacom Artz II 12x12. It's still pretty kick ass.

    is the working area large enough for most images to work on?

    For me it is. Less movement. If you didn't know, the active space on a tablet represents your screen. Upper left of the tablet is upper left on your screen. Middle of tablet is middle of your screen, etc.

    So, with a larger tablet, you have to move your hand more.

    I was unaware of how the active sapce worked, but a larger tablet also will allow for a more precise movment. but I guess that is easily remidied by simply zooming in on the image?

    Correct. You can always get a cheap smaller one to try the tablet thing out, then get a larger one if you really like it. The Bamboo fun opened up a whole new door for me. I'll get something bigger later, but for now, it complements my macbook very nicely.
