    Tell us what you will be doing.The difference is primarily size. The larger the tablet, the more it
    costs.

    I have the smallest: Wacom Bamboo at $80.

    If you want this for drawing or creating artwork, you'll want a large
    tablet. If you want it to use with Photoshop (or similar) to work on
    Layer Masks or creating selections, the Bamboo is perfectly adequate
    (in my estimation).

    If you want to do drawings, like a cartoon character, a large tablet
    allows you to make long strokes. It's like drawing on paper. It's
    also good to use a large tablet if you're doing tracings.

    If you are editing in Photoshop, you don't make those long strokes so
    the small pad works fine. You move the zoomed up image area around.

    The key to acclimating to tablet is that you have to get used to
    watching the results on the screen and not watching your hand movement
    like you would drawing freehand on paper. You already do that with a
    mouse or trackball, but people starting out on a tablet tend to watch
    the tablet instead of the screen.
