wats the best WACOM stick for a product design student?

hi guys
i am planning to buy a wacom digital pen… so was wondering wats the best for a Product design student.
My 2 main choices r:

Bamboo Fun A5 (6 * 8 inches)
Intuos3 A5 (6 * 8 inches)

Both come with softwares and bamboo fun has less sensitivity but comes with a mouse. Is Intuos really needed for a product designer?

Intuos. Period.

Better everything. If you have the cash get the Intuos and you’ll be much happier.

The Intuos is a good product, but the Cintiq is the grand daddy of all the Wacom products. If you have time save up your money and buy a Cintiq 12WX.

thank u guys… i am goin for the Wacom Intuos3 6 x 8 Pen Tablet … fits my budget

If you haven’t bit the bullet yet consider the 6x11" tablet if you use ANY widescreen displays. The aspect ratio is more appropriate for widescreen displays which covers just about EVERY laptop currently made and at least 75% of monitors.

thank u but i already ordered 6 by 8
