Default Wacom Intuos 2

I am considering purchasing a graphic tablet and need some advice. I've pretty much narrowed it down to the Wacom Intuos 2. I am confused as to which size (4x5 or 6x8) would be most useful for photo retouching, illustration and digital painting. I primarily use Photoshop 7 and Illustrator 10 and have a 21 inch monitor. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Also, any recommedations on where to purchase from (best price, reputable retailer)?

Thanks!

I have heard that the 6 X 8 is best for photo retouching.
Try ebay.com. Let me know how it works out as I am thinking of doing the very same thing.

I use the 4x5 and it is more than sufficient. The 4x5 space maps to your monitor and gives very fine, precise control. I use the pen all the time now instead of a mouse. You're gonna love it!

btw, PaintShop Pro has a new beta with a one-step photo retouch. It will do a fabulous job on 80% of your photos, doing with one click what you'd spend 20 minutes doing. you can get the beta at the jasc.com website. [not affiliated - just a happy customer]
