I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who responded to my inquiry
about which size of Wacom Art Tablet would be the best buy.
I'm going to go with the 6x8. Thanks again!
I purchased my artZII on Jan 15 at Wests Camera Supply in Seattle for
$310. As some of you advised I would have no difficulty with skipping when
the pen was tilted which I had experienced in a demo. Apparently the
skipping can occur if the tilt sensitivity is turned up but the salesmen
didn't know squat about the Wacom pen. As one of you advised Wacom Tech
support in Vancouver could have told me about this phenomena. I am using
the pen with Lotus Freelance and am sizing up more sophiscated graphics
software for sketching.
