    Hey, I have a couple questions about the Wacom Tablet.

    I'm not really sure which one to get, all I know is that I want to try one out.

    My setup is a MacBook Pro + 24" Dell Monitor

    My concern is will a wacom tablet be able to function under a two monitor setup? If so, which one should I get that would be optimal? Price isn't an issue.

    I'm basically considering the 9x12 and the 6x11

    I'd get the 9x12 but I see the 6x11 is made for wide screens and dual monitors. Is the 9x12 better either way, or should I go for the 6x11?

    If anyone could help me out that'd be amazing, thanks!

    It is easy to set up for dual screen use.

    One of the buttons can be set so that the focus of the tablet can be switched between screens.

    I think the larger tablets are slightly harder to use as your arm has to travel further to cross the tablet. They are quite bulky.

    The size difference between the two does not matter. The aspect ratio can be kept, this just creates a unused section of the tablet and can be adjusted.
