I have been developing pains in the tendons in the back of my hands over the last few weeks. I am fairly sure that this is the onset of RSI........ After a week long seasonal break from the computer (but using the camera!) they are back today after little typing/ mousework.

Will a graphics tablet help me prevent this situation worsening?

If so which size of the Intuos 3 ones to go for? I have a 20 inch Formac 2010 LCD monitor and do quite a few pen paths and dust removal at 100% zoom of my scans. I would prefer the smaller A5 since it is cheaper and woudn't be such a tight fit on the desk.

Seeking practical and impartial advice, not available from the Wacom website!

Many thanks
