Here are some tablets we really like. Hopefully they're in your budget range!
WACOM - any of the Intuos line - this is the top of the line professional product.
Budget alert: If you're a starving
artist, try lower-cost alternatives, to see if you really like working
with tablet pens in the first place. It takes some learning and getting used to, but soon
enough you'll wonder how you ever managed without a digital pen instead of a mouse.
Wacom also makes devices that are the tablet inside the screen, such as the Cintiq. Those work great too.
Very good options for tiny budgets but also some higher
end great quality models for professionals. This artist uses a Huion
tablet too (another model) and loves it! ...... Dakorillion
Another great option, very low budget but
great quality too. And they have several higher-end alternatives,
including display surfaces with pressure input, and light tables. Check

We tried the 6 x 5 Inches Soft Drawing Graphics Tablet Flex Pen Tablet and liked it.
It's a tablet in the screen at the same
time as it is the computer in it too. Even more, it's a laptop....
Nicely compact, but there is one catch: It doesn't use the WinTab
interface that Project Dogwaffle needs. However, you can find the WinTab
driver as an additional download and installation from Microsoft's websites. Start here to look for it for your specific version of MS Surface:
