    My tablet is Wacom Bamboo Fun, medium size
    This is the first one of mine, and I feel very comfortable with it
    I think, you should buy it too
    I have read the posts in the Internet, lots of people advised Bamboo Fun to start with

    WBF Med is $200. Intuos4 - Medium is $230. Shouldn't I just buy this one?

    I didn't worked with Intuos, so I can't say what's better

    If you can swing an Intuos4, I would absolutely, unreservedly suggest that. I have a little Bamboo that I use with my netbook, and I've owned Intuos1-4, as well as the predecessor to the Intuos (whose name I can't recall.)

    The Intuos4 is, simply, the best, most ergonomic graphics tablet I have ever used. I like the 6x8 size, which is the medium size. My Bamboo is smaller, and, for my purposes (simple quick sketching on the go) it's great. However, I wouldn't use it for my primary tablet, both because of its size & its coarser resolution.

    This isn't to say the Bamboo isn't a great tablet -- it is! -- but the Intuos is better.

    Why Wacom?

    I know Wacom is the tablet the professionals swear by, but I just wonder do you really need to go to that expense?
    I've only been working with digital painting for a couple of months, but I found a 14" diagonal sized tablet from Aiptek (a German company) with 4000lpi resolution and 1024 level sensitivity that certainly gives me the results I'm after...and for only 80-ish USD.
    Why pay 3 times the money for a tablet half the size?
    Just a thought...

    If you just want to play around Bamboo it is.
    If you want to feel like a pro - Intuos is the best choice. I have been working on Intuos since early version and I wouldn't go with anything else.
    Bamboo is a toy IMO, doesn't have that soft feeling when you draw, it's like scratching paper with dry brush. At least this is how I felt when I decided to try it. I took it back.
