In the case of the budget allows, I usually choose some brand tablet PC.For example: HP, Asus, Dell, Samsung, IBM.

• first of all what is the best brand for a drawing tablet?
Wacom
• I do like the Wacom Cintiq 22HD - 22 " HD, wide-format Interactive Pen Display with Grip Pen but its really expensive anywho if I did get it is it compatible with Paint tool sai?
Yes, unless like someone else says, something goes wrong with the driver installation.
• I do like working on screen what other tablets are like that?
None that are just tablets. Tablet PCs allow you to work onscreen but trust me, I've owned two, and they're not very good for art. The screen feels really really cramped, one of mine had issues with SAI, I never got it working. They're also either cheap and get burning hot, or almost as expensive as a cintiq unless bought refurbished or used, and not very powerful. They also have a crap screen. In fact most laptops these days have a crap screen. They can't even display 50% of the colors. Reds look orange (try placing something bright red by something bright red on the screen) I changed from my tablet pc to a 15" laptop with a larger, 95% color accurate, Full HD screen and bought an Intuos 5 Medium. I was worried about the hand eye coordination but I got used to it in less than a week. I ended up looking at the cursor on the screen on the tablet pc anyways instead of the tip of the pen since there was a space between them so switching to a tablet wasn't so hard. Anyways, I will never got back to tablet pc's. In the future I might buy a cintiq, but one of the bigger ones. DO NOT buy the cheap small one, it's even worse than a tablet pc as the screen is even smaller.
• How much is the most you would pay for a tablet?
Depends on how much money I have. Eventually I want to get the latest cintiq, but that won't be anytime soon.
• Will having a tablet take up space on my computer?
No...
• What kinda tablet do you have? If ya do have one how does it work for you and how do you like it?
Intuos 5 Medium, I love it. Slight problems with the touch. Changed the pen to a slim pen (I was used to the really thin tablet pc pens, which you couldn't change and hurt because they weren't ergonomic). I love the slim pen. Also I got it the wireless battery pack so no cables. I used to drown in cables. Now it's just one, my laptop's charger.

If you don't already own a tablet a bamboo or intuos should do just fine. Either way they'll be a learn curve in owning any kinda of tablet.

I own a cintiq and a intuos and I can use them pretty pretty much the same.

Wacom is the best brand, and judging from your art level I recommend you bamboo, you really won't use any better in its full capacity, it'll be just throwing money out the window.

I use a genius tablet with a g-pen 560, but I would suggest a wacom bamboo tablet, as everyone seems to prefer them.
I just have my tablet because my older sister gave it to me, so I can't complain x3
It works just fine, though it lags sometimes. The driver, however, has the pen pressure built into it so everything is pressure sensitive. (I dunno why, I just found that no matter what I draw in, from MS paint to some random drawing pad on the internet, it has pressure sensitivity. It's kinda cool.)
My tablet costs about $30 if you are looking for cheap though.
Hope this helped!

I have the smaller Cintiq and it's easy enough to use the touch strips to easily zoom in or out. I don't think you'll need the large Cintiq unless you're using a lot of arm movement.

Howdy,

I'd recommend a wacom bamboo or intuos tablet for you. I wouldn't really suggest a cintiq unless you do art for a living or have plenty of spare cash lying around.

:bulletblue: Wacom is probably the best brand.
:bulletblue: Yes, pressure sensitivity should work with Sai if nothing is terribly wrong with your computer. There have been some issues over the years with some of the drivers but if you install everything properly you should be fine. If you have a problem, a google search will turn up all kinds of answers.
:bulletblue: cintiq alternatives: [link] [link]
:bulletblue: As a career artist, I'd probably aim for about $2000 or less if I could find a good deal.
:bulletblue: It shouldn't create any problems on reasonably new computers with good video cards and adequate RAM. If you have a video card that will run two monitors you can use the cintiq as a second monitor and that can be handy. You'll need some desk space for it.
:bulletblue: I bought a wacom intuos tablet from newegg and used it a lot for a few years. Then in 2008, I saved up and bought a used cintiq 21UX on ebay from a seller with a good rating. I continue to use it for many hours every day. I hope it lasts for many more years but if it breaks I'll certainly buy another Cintiq.

Best brand -> Wacom, no hesitation here.

Cintiq -> You'll probably prefer the 24HD model. It's slightly more expensive (but at this point a few hundred dollars don't mean that much - it's an investment no matter what), but the chassis is just so much better (you can use it like a real drawing table).

Other tablets -> A few mobile solutions exist (such as the Galaxy Note 10.1). Can't recommend them over a full-fledged Wacom equipment though - mobile solutions are restrained by mobile operating systems and performances.

Most money I'd pay -> I have a Cintiq 24HD, so its price.

Space on your computer -> If your computer is modern you probably won't feel the difference.

Tablets -> I have a Cintiq 24HD, an Intuos4 Wireless, a Galaxy Note 10.1 and a Galaxy Note 2. I do most of my work on the first two; the last two are contingent solutions for when I'm in a train / not at home / far from my computers. The Cintiq 24HD is the best digital art experience I've ever had.

If this is your first tablet, you should probably aim for an Intuos5 M. Cintiq is overkill for a relative beginner.
On the other hand, if you're sure you'll be using it a lot, think of taking a Cintiq.

Cintiq but it will cost you a mortgage.

intuos tablets are generally considered the best for most.

"but it will cost you a mortgage."

uh, maybe if you live in a box. a cintiq is well within the reach of anyone who has a job above the level of burger-flipper.

It was a fucking expression. 24HD touches cost upwards of 2,400 plus. How many months of payslips would you need to come up with that after you discount having to pay for bills and essential amenities like food?
It's not looking so cheap now is it.

Intuos's on the other hand. A few weeks of saving up to snap up.
