Hi everyone,

Having done some basic maths I have deduced that the wacom A5 wide is probably the best choice in terms of screen size/ratio to active area of the tablet. I'm curious to know what you guys out there think. Has anyone had experience with both the a5 normal and a5 wide tablets to help me decide for sure. I have tried the a5 normal on my MBP and it seems cool. But would the a5 wide be just that little bit better?!

A4 intuos3. Great pen, good size, not too expensive. I wouldn't be without mine for a cold second!

I would say that A4 is just too big for a 15.4 inch screen. I use an A4 intuos 2 at work and that is almost too big for the 24inch widescreen monitor that I use with it! I can see myself wanting a bigger one if I ever save enough to invest in a apple cinema 30 though!

This is going to show my stupidity so bear with me.
I am planning on buying my first Wacom.
What is the A4 or A5 wide or normal? Which ones are that?

I am interested in a Intuos3 6x11.
How is that one in relation to a 15" MBP?
