If will is not needing the the high quality pressure sensitivity of the 
Intuos tablet line (since he says he mostly uses it to erase parts of 
images), or have the pocket book for a Cintiq, he might do well to look 
at the Wacom Bamboo line-  I specifically would 
look at the Bamboo Fun model.  It is medium size and has the equivalent 
of the earlier Intuos abilities.  It is what I would get if I was on a 
budget.  Otherwise an Intuos4- medium or large.  I now use the Intuos4 
Large int he office to handle a two monitor setup.
