Wow guys, thanks for the responsiveness to this. I went out and purchased the Intuos 4 (Small) for my 17" Macbook pro. I love it. Then again, I can't really compare it to any other wacom related tablet except for my actual HP TABLET PC (built on wacom).

I did see the bamboo pen/touch but not sure how the two would mix well together? Do I really need touch? Hmmm... A quick review I pulled up on my iPhone while trying to decide at the store was that the touch feature wasn't all that and the use of it wasn't something you really would use so having that extra feature is nice but not necessary.

On the other hand, when I took my intuos 4 home, I didn't know it came with a mouse? Honestly, I like the mouse feature..then again if I was going to ask myself, why I need the extra mouse? I really don't know (same idea as having touch).

Anyway, happy camper here...

I am a NAPP member, can someone elaborate on the sharing preferences...links?

Go to the NAPP website and search for Intuos.

I've never used the Bamboo, but you'd be in for a fight if you tried to take my Intuos 3 away from me.

I have and older Graphire4 (model before the Bamboo) and the Intuos3
after using the Intuos - there is no way i will go back to the Graphire.
the pen is much more comfortable to use, especially for long periods of time, and there is so much more sensitivity than the graphire.

to be perfectly honest, between the multitouch on my macbook's trackpad, and the intuos plugged in when its sitting on my desk with the 24" monitor connected, i never use a mouse at home.
at work i tend to get frustrated, and avoid doing any real photoshop work, as i find the mouse very clunky to use

The programmability of the Intuos 4 across multiple applications can be VERY useful. NAPP members can download and use the Photoshop guys preferences or preferences can be traded or passed on.

For everyone else who needs this information. As I was doing my duty in the bathroom, I picked up a random Photoshop User magazine and ol' and behold, on Page 19, December 2009 Edition, there is a section specifically talking about Sharing tablet settings.

You can log into NAPP (if you have an account), look under NAPP Perks > Perks & Freebies and follow the instructions to get their settings and learn how you can share your tablet preferences too!

I know I went to the site blindly and couldn't find it but there you go!

I've been looking at these tablets for a while now and most of my shooting is landscape. Which Intuos do you guys recommend? The 3 or 4? I'll be using it for layer masking and dodge & burn. Would the Intuos 4 be too big? Thanks in advance for any advice.

Intuos 3 and Intuos 4 are series

within each series you have different sizes

the Intuos 4 are the new ones

Thanks! :) So, will the Intuos 4 Large be to big for what I need it for? Or is the medium size good enough? :)

I have a Medium I4 and a Bamboo...honestly, the Bamboo does pretty much everything the I4 does and is SUBSTANTIALLY cheaper. If you dont need huge amounts of customization or a larger working area, then the Bamboo is totally fine and a much better bargain.

I use a Graphire and while it's OK for what I do the Bluetooth seems to interfere with my laptop's Wi-Fi. When upgrade time comes I'll go for an Intuos.

I have a Intuos 3 9x12 and I love it. Bigger is better for me, I love the extra room and the features of the Intuos are great. I couldn't use a bamboo anymore, no way.

I'm definitely going for the Intuos 4 medium. I was watching a couple of videos on Youtube and most seems to like it. The reviews online are positive as well. :)
