Wacom intuos4 active area size


i have seen the newly released intuos4 and currently i have an A5 wide intuos3
6 x 11

i have been comparing the active areas of the A5 wide 6 x 11 to the formats of the new intuos4 -
now the active areas seem quite a bit smaller - the M is now 5.5 x 8.5
and the L is quite a lot larger -
which is a shame as i really like the 6 x 11 area size and would not like to shrink that down

right now i dont know if wacom will release a larger size tablet or how the responce will be from you also over the shrunk area size -
i know its 0.5 x 2.5 smaller but still wanted to see your thought on that

thanks for any opinions

Re: Wacom intuos4 active area size

I have A3 wide a think intuos3 [9 x 12].
It is so large really, and i was looking to get 6 x 11 but it was out of stock or unavailable, and i thought that 6 x 8 which available is little smaller, but after i got my 9 x 12 i feel i want to go down, and i saw that 6x 11 or maybe x 8 on a local store and the size where great, but i saw Bamboo 4 x 6 and i feel it is so simple and it will be more comfortable for my hand to move on [it was really tired to move on that 9 x 12 active area], so i ordered that small version of intuos4 and will see how it will be.
