Honestly if your really not gona use it and you want more portability then id say go smaller i see no reason to spend 40 extra dollers on someting your really gona use that much.
then again 260 for a 9X12 isnt too bad for the bigger is it?
id just say save the money put it in the bank or somefin

From my perspective, anything smaller than a 9x12 is for hobby work. Seriously. Spend the extra dough and get something you can actually paint with. It will pay off. Not one of the guys I know uses anything smaller than that. If you are just having fun the smaller one is awesome...but I think those of you looking at getting tablets which you will end up having for a couple years, should save the peanuts and get the bigger size or the latest model when it arrives if you can afford it. That hardware is like your violin. Get the best one you can afford.

Jason, what's your say on 6x11 vs 9x12 for laptop students just getting into the digital scene?
Majority from what I hear say 6x11 way more often than 9x12 for widescreen users... Can you elaborate on why the 9x12's a better choice and in what contexts?

bigger the better , ive been using these for over a decade and i go for the 12x19 every time. ,
if they sold a brush in an art supply store that make your strokes more accurate would you buy it?,
the intuos will last for years if you treat it right, the extra investment will come down to only pennies a day.

Thanks for the input, Andrew. I went with the 6x11 for portability and affordability at the moment, it's a perfect fit for me. If I need to go bigger, I'm sure I'll have no qualms with getting another! Could always pass on the 6x11 to somebody else starting off.
That 12x19 you have is just intense, though! I gotta ask... how's your back feel after doing a live paint standing up for so long? That thing's gotta weigh you down after a while!

I'm probably going to upgrade someday when I can afford.
Right now I have a graphire 4 a5 (6x11?) and it serves me good for the moment.
But am I the only one who doesn't paint with my whole arm?
Should I do that shit?
Because I've never felt that my tablet is too small for my strokes.
Makes me a bit worried actually.

I actually have the 9x12 at home and the size smaller at work -- It doesn't have any precision difference and personally, the smaller is actually much more comfortable to work with it.

IanE, I actually have the 6x11 for the money reason, and because it's the biggest size that can fit on my desk. It'll have to last me a good while because I have very little money, myself. o_o
It works good enough for me! I have a 24-inch widescreen monitor, so the placement of the pen doesn't confuse me. I can move my arm better using it. So hopefully you'll have similar results.

the smaller than screen tablets interpolate upward with the strokes. It is simply not as accurate as the larger ones which come closer to actual mark size or in the case of mine and andrews tablets (12x19) The interpolation is downward which is more accurate than going the other way. If you are traditionally trained at all, drawing and painting comes from the elbow...which can happen on the larger tablets rather than the smaller ones which will keep you on the tips of your fingers...ie less control.

I have a 9x12, and it suits me very well. I've wanted to try the bigger ones, but to actually get one i'd have to do some serious rearranging of my workspace, since it wouldn't fit my desk.
I've worked quite a bit with the a5 wide (i don't know what that is in inches, but its the one down from the 9x12) on a laptop, and i'm definitely getting one of those when i finally buy my own laptop. Its portable and have the same functions as its big brothers. Smaller drawing area/interpolation isn't really a big concern of mine, but after using the a5 for a bit it feels liberating to go back to the a4, i imagine the even bigger one would be awesome. (Although some of that liberating feeling comes from going from laptop monitor to dual phat screen action..)
