I am used to a A4 paper of course. I have already saved up for the medium sized Intuos, but the large (if you do the match) is cheaper for its size.

I don't know which to buy, should I save up even more money for the large because of the math and more work space, or will it feel a little too big if I am used to A4, hard to move around and so on? I don't know, my income also isn't that big BTW.

What version should I get?

  • I've emphasised the criteria of being used to A4, which is what makes this not just about opinion. Dec 23 '14 at 16:04
  • This is really just a matter of preference and no one can decide for you. I prefer the large, especially after working with a 8x6 [medium] (close to A4) for years.

The simple answer is, if you're most comfortable with A4, the medium Intuos Pro is already pretty darn large. It's almost A3 - the drawing area is almost as tall as a portrait A4 sheet and wider than a landscape A4 sheet.

The "large" is more comparable in size to an old-school drafting desk.

If you're most comfortable with A4 drawing, I'd say go medium. Unless you're most comfortable sitting at a drafting desk, large is likely to feel huge!]

Just incase anyone is unfamiliar with drafting desks, I mean like this (image source). Popular among architects, technical illustrators, etc. Very different to drawing in an A4 sketchbook.
