Finally took the plunge and upgraded to a Intuos 4 after happily spending my life up to this point with a giant Intuos 1. This has gotta be the best way to upgrade anything IMO, because the difference is very enjoyable and satisfying. A product design side note is that their packing design is surprisingly slick.
