You can try the the Wacom tablets.
They are well supported on most platforms and work nicely in GIMP.
The cheaper models like the Graphire won't break the bank (normally around the
$100 mark) and will definitely work a lot better than the typical computer
Even my old Graphire 1 has 256 levels of pressure sensitivity which is an
extremely useful feature. i.e. The harder you press the more "ink" comes out
of the selected tool. Try do that with a standard mouse ...
