Just my 2 cents here.  Someone pointed out to me that if I didn't do 
large gestural drawing a 4x6 would do me fine and save me a lot of 
money.  They were right.  I've never missed a larger one.  What I'm 
envious of is tilt.  My Bamboo Fun doesn't have tilt, and gimp is able 
to respond to tilt.  It would make some things more expressive, imagine 
tilting your brush and laying more of it on a canvas then straightening 
it up during a stroke for example.

Touch could be cool.  Touch is where you don't need the stylus, but (I 
am imagining since I don't have it) the precision is less.  Imagine 
reaching out to a canvas with your finger and smudging something.  That 
would be cool.

You didn't say what kind of system you use.  New Wacom tablets are 
supported right away on Mac and Windows, but lag a little bit (could be 
a few days to a few months depending) on Linux.  Any other questions 
feel free to ask.
