Default Graphics tablets/Wacom?

Hmmm I want one, can someone give me pointers to what i need/what is compatible with Maya etc etc?

I don't want to spend a fortune on 1 though. (Less than $120.00 say)

Any thoughts? Scraggy

EDIT: the link didn't work so go here: http://www.computeruniverse.net

So they all work with Maya then? I suppose they would as its only a replacement mouse, but was unsure.
Thanks guys, I will call in shop on way home, see what they have available locally.
Then post again if I like the look of one.

I dunno about less than 120, except for the Wacom Graphire 2 at 4x5

I personally have a Wacom Intuos2 platinum at 9x12. It cost me a pretty penny, but I still saved about $125 by buying it from some guy at an art forum, and not at Fry's.

(I paid $375, when Fry's was $470 + tax)

I have the graphire 2 4x5, and I love it. It's nice and portable, I often use it with a laptop. I guess it depends on what you want to do with it though. For painting weights, and paintfx, and texture painting, the graphire 2 gets the job done nicely. If your gonna be painting masterpieces in photoshop or painter, maybe you should opt for a bigger one.
