I have a graphire 4 6x8
i have heard that the larger ones hurt your arms because you have to move it more, apparently 6x8 is the best size

I owned a Graphire1 3x5, then upgraded to an Intuos3 6x8. At my studio I use the Intuos3 while when i'm out and have my Powerbook in hand, I carry with me my old Graphire.

Well, for school I used the Intuos 3 6x8. I have a laptop and it fit nicely into that case, or even slid comfortable into my backpack. Yes, it is bigger...but not that big where it becomes a burden (IMO).

I need to add on here that I -do- have a Wacom Intuos 3 9x12 that I use at home. What I'm wondering is what I should go for to take around with me to work and suchlike :D

If I had my druthers, I'd have the larger Intuos -- I have a few friends who have it, and they adore it -- but I do get by rather well with my smaller Graphire 3. So basically, if you can afford the former, do so, but if you can't, don't sweat it, 'cause the latter (well, version 4) will serve you just fine :)

I'd prefer a slightly larger one - but then I don't use mine anyway.

Haven't messed around with any intuos tablets, but my little 4x6 Graphire 4 is small enough to be concidered drawing pad sized and it fits quite nicely in my lap when I don't have enough desk space to firmly plant it anywhere (which is most of the time).
