You might check places like ebay.  Every day people buy tablets and then 
end up never using them and selling them practically new for a great 
price.  The new Intuos at 6.3" x 3.9" active area sells for $229 US.  It 
has +-60 degrees of tilt.  5080 lines per inch (as do all of the Intuos 
of any size).  2048 pressure sensitivity levels.  It's pretty good!  On 
Amazon, a used one is as low as $149 right now, and a used medium is as 
low as $249.  If you'd be happy with the Intuos 3, ebay has a bunch of 
new ones really cheap.  Wouldn't it be cool to have a big cintiq?  $1999 
US.  There's plans on the web to make your own from recycled parts.
