I have both an Intuos 4 and Cintiq. Personally, I think the Int4 is more than enough for a professional artist. It's a great, versatile tablet with the best functions of all tablets. I highly recommend it. The Cintiq is honestly a matter of preference, try it before you buy it. My girlfriend DEFINITELY prefers an Intuos to the Cintiq, but luckily for us we were able to borrow a friend's before we bought it. I like the Cintiq's preferences more personally, but I don't mind stealing her Intuos every once in a while.

For people who have the Pen&Touch, does it work fine? What I'm worried about is the activity screen size. I think it's too small, but if it works fine, why waste an additional 100 bucks? But before I even bother with the purchase, I would like your opinion

I think the only difference between the Pen and Pen and Touch is that the P&T also allows you to use your fingers, while the Pen doesn't.
The other reason was resolution; you get better control in drawing the details with larger tablet than with smaller ones (which forced you to zoom a lot). The 8x12 version was too bulky though... and so does cintix...

Personally, I believe the specs would be more like:
-No USB port required
-Compatible with any point and click camera or even camera phones
-Almost infinitely reusable
-Over 9000 levels of pressure sensitivity!!!
-Can be used as a mouse pad
-Incredibly affordable price of 1 USD!!! (or its equivalent in your currency. Bought it for 42 PHP)
In case of damage, the package says it can also be easily repaired with "502 Instant Glue."

I don't do art professionally but I love the hobby enough that the Cintiq was worth it. Now I DO make art professionally but...I generally use my Intuos for that type of art.
I've always used Wacom products. My parents got me a little Graphire for my 16th birthday. Granted you are limited by what your parents are willing to spend. Your product should work fine.
However, even after 10 years, my first Wacom Graphire still works like a champ. My mother uses it now for her work. :3
I haven't used mine very much, even though I've had it for YEARS.
It's an old Wacom Graphire3 and it works like a pro. I use it more often now since I got Autodesk SketchBook Pro (for Mac, yeah baby :3) while I was working on a project for an elective multimedia class (and looking for inexpensive drawing software, because this class taught me that I can't draw in Photoshop worth crap! lol! I can use Photoshop for everything except drawing - drawing in Photoshop just DOES NOT WORK for me...)
Since I'm getting serious with my VN writing and I plan on being my own illustrator, my little tablet's gonna get a whole lot more use in the near future...
Guess which one gets the most mileage.
Yep, it's the teeny weeny one.
I also had NO END to driver issues on 64-bit Windows 7 and Wacom tech support is just fucking terrible. I got it fixed though... somehow.
Even though I'm righthanded, I also use the left-handed option so if I Ctrl+Alt+Delete, Windows decides I have no mouse input and if it spontaneously decides to reinstall drivers after sleeping or restarting, I often have no tablet input or it's upside down. =(
Photoshop will also decide sometimes that, no, I don't have pressure or to only let me draw on like half the screen. Man, tablets are a pain sometimes...

By the way, I have no problems with it on 64-bit Windows 7.
Don’t be sad. Even if you won’t forgive the world, I’ll forgive you.
So please tell me. How do I make you forgive me?"
