Hi, I saw Damien's wacom advice was last updated in 2015, can anyone tell me which is the best I should be looking at now it's 2017? I really want to buy the right one and can't afford to get it wrong (£££)

following the thirds rule - my screen is an LG widescreen 29" (much wider than tall)

do I need any accessories with it to get the most out of it?

I'd really appreciate any advice from members so I don't make a mistake and regret it, I know Damien still uses his ancient one and probably doesn't have up to date advice, thank you

I'd just really like to buy one before I run out of funds, I'm very excited!

I was thinking anything around 8" upwards unless they become unaffordable, I've never used one so I wil likely become accustomed quickly to whatever size I start with - I hope!

If you go for a "Pen and Touch" one like this or similar, you'll probably find you want to turn off the touch functionality.

is that so only the pen can activate the tablet and I can't accidentally do things with my hand? 

That one is a lot cheaper than I was thinking I'd have to pay which is good new, some of the medium tablets are £400+

All I can tell you is that I've always been very happy with my simple, cheap tablet.  I don't have any fancy extra buttons or anything, just a tablet and a pen.

thank you Damien, there's a new pro model just out and one with an additional paper model, I think I'll get the medium for £380 (AUS $625) I can't wait, thanks again.
