    Hi, I am wondering...I am interested in purchasing a small Intuos tablet for my iMac but have been reading that smaller tablets pose a greater challenge when drawing. I have a 21" mac and want to know if the 5.8x3.6 Intuos will work fine on this size mac. Please advise. Thanks

    Honestly that depends on the person, everyone has different taste when it comes to those. I'd buy it somewhere I could return it or exchange if I didn't like it if I were you.

    I've had the Large and now the Inuos Pro Medium. The large was too big, the medium seems just right for me.

    The Small just seemed a little TOO small. I haven't used the small for long periods of time though.

    I used to have a Bamboo and liked its size. I lost the pen, so bought an Intuous Pro Medium that I use with my 15" MBP plugged into a 30" ACD. Using the entire useable area on the Medium mapped to the 30", it actually feels too big to me —*the amount of arm movement needed. I remapped the workspace on the tablet to cover BOTH my 30" and my MBP screens, which are stacked vertically, and it works much better for me.

    The moral of this story being — a much smaller area than the Medium (it ends up being like 2/3 of the usable space) was more comfortable for me on a 30" ACD.

    However I think it depends on what you're doing and your personal style. People used to freak out when trying to use my mice which were always at full speed ahead. Never understood why people wanted to pick up and drag their mice around using their whole arm. But hey different strokes right?
