After the urging of some friends I purchased the Wacom Bamboo Fun Small USB Tablet in black from Best Buy today.
I don't care much for the mouse it came with but if you like it you can use it wirelessly right on top of the tablet.
They had the larger size but I found that the small size is absolutely perfect for my needs and fits well on my desk.
It allows you to:
Touch up digital photos, draw or write in your own handwriting with this tablet with cordless pen and mouse. Precise control and 512 levels of pressure sensitivity on both the pen and eraser provide a realistic feel when you write or draw.
The dimenstions of the SMALL Size Tablet: 5.8" x 3.7"
