Based on feedback from various people, I've decided to give it a shot.
I ordered a Wacom medium-sized Bamboo Fun with the mouse and pen.
- Wacom, because it seems pretty much universally agreeed that
they're the best.
- Bamboo Fun, because it's a couple hundred dollars cheaper than
their "professional quality" tablets in the same size range.
- Medium, because a couple of people on other forums commented
that they have trouble drawing effectively at 4x5. In fact, a
couple commented that you should get a pad that has the same
aspect ratio as your screen, but only the much more expensive
tablets come in 16x9, so I had to forgo that option.
I'll let you know how it goes.
