    Have pretty much decided on the Intuos 3, but would appreciate advice on the size to get - 4x6, 6x8 or 6x11. Am using 2 24" monitors.

    Does aspect ratio of tablet vs. aspect ratio of screen make any difference?

    Your input is apprectaed.

  2. I would tend to go smaller, Dan. I have a couple of dual-monitor setups, and I map a small portion of the tablet surface to span the entirety of the real estate that's on the screens. It takes minimal hand movement to zoom around, and it saves space on your desk.

    6 X 8

    I decided the 6 X 8 was a good compromise. Glad I chose that one. I have a 22 inch and a 19 inch monitor.
  4. They have a pretty good tool to answer this very question on Wacom.com
    It takes your purposes and equipment into consideration and then gives the best choices to you.
    I use the 6 x 11 with my 30" and 23" monitor set up. It works for me very well.

    Thanks for all of your help - think I will go with the smallest one - from everything I have read it points to that choice for my uses.

    I decided to get the new 12" Cintiq - and I'm really digging it!
