I was looking at the Wacom Bamboo Pen A6 Tablet. What would you suggest, this will be my first tablet.

your on the right track wacum are the best as to which model it is down to you do you want the ability to wrok with fingers or are you most likely to use the pen. do you want all the button shorcuts on you tablet or are you happy just to do the drawing side from it. I personally say go for the best you can afford and stick with it until you can use it efficiently as they are hard at first to get use to

Sold then, Burned Ice Im gonna get that first thing tomorrow morning. Can't wait to try the mixer brush with an actual tablet, should be way easier and better. Thanks for your input guys.

I use a Bamboo and a Intuos. If you are just beginning with a tablet then get a bamboo to see if you like it. It is rare but I do know people that hate using them and hate to see you go and spend a bunch of money on something you don't like and will never use!

I have used the Bamboo and its quite nice. I personally run an Intuous 3 however. (Bamboo didn't exist when I bought) The pattern here is everyone is using Wacom lol. There are some good working no name branded ones, but you can't beat the quality of a Wacom, its what they do and they do it well.

I opted the Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch Tablet route and I'm loving it. Again, thanks for the heads up.

I have 2 Wacom tablets.
An Intuis4 for my desktop and a Bamboo touch for my laptop.
Two different desks.

I don't like or use the touch features on the Bamboo, other than that they're both great tools.

Your choice is correct, Wacom tablets are the best out there. And it's not that big(bigger tablets tend to be harder to use for most users).
