I think you answered your own question by using the phrase 'wacom tablet' instead of just 'tablet'. Both of mine are pretty old now, but I have tried others - some with batteries in the pens - and I've not found a wacom beater yet. Since cost is an issue, you could go for a smaller model. The one I use at home - a wacom penpartner - has a 4"x5" live area which is fine for most tasks, although you're gonna want to take regular breaks to stop handcramps or the dreaded RSI, what with arcing from the wrist rather than the elbow or shoulder.
Nowadays you want to go for pressure and tilt sensetivity (that is if you're going to paint with it).
Anyone else know of any other makes/models?
