Not a tablet thread

I would like to purchase a Wacom (or other if any) pad for rendering and sketching. I would like to finally cross over and replace the pen and paper.

I’ve been aimlessly researching models and prices, any advice/suggestions from real designers/artists with experience working with them?

Thank you.

Toshiba R15 or Tecra M45 Convertible Tablet PC Laptops would be best!
You will like sketching directly on screen in stead of a tablet.
