I have a big Intuos 4 with all the buttons. I like the size, but I never use the buttons. If you are into really customizing your work flow and keyboard shortcuts, they might be worth while. But otherwise they are not needed.

I also have a small Intuos Creative Pen & Touch Tablet. I think the one I have is a recently discontinued model.  But I think if you don't need the buttons on the Pro, the current equivalent is the way to go ($99) or if you want a bigger work area ($199). If you are going to be on the go with a laptop, maybe go smaller. If you are going to be at a desk mostly, go larger. The different versions refer to the additional software that is bundled with the tablet. Most of it is worthless to me on a mac. If you are on a PC, you may be more concerned about which version you choose for the bundled software.
