Wacom are known for their huge Cintiq LCD displays with pen-input, but the company also makes a smaller, 12.1-inch model intended to be used in your lap.  At $1405 it could hardly be called entry-level, but it has the same 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity, 5080dpi resolution and pen-tilt awareness as its bigger siblings.  PC Authority have been trying out the 16:10-aspect 1280 x 800 monitor, and judging by their 5/6 rating they seem impressed.

Wacom to woo desktop artists with Cintiq 12WX inkable monitor

As any graphic designer (or Tablet PC owner, for that matter) will tell you, when it comes to digital pen technology you'll always get fine results going to Wacom.  Up until now, however, your choice has been shepherded into one of two different product types: those with a sturdy desk and a desire to see what they're drawing on can pick from the Cintiq range of touch-sensitive displays, while those who want something more compact and, dare I say, lap-friendly can choose from the numerous ranges of graphics tablets (such as the latest Bamboo or Intuos3).  Wacom are blurring that division, now, however, with the introduction of the baby in the Cintiq range: the compact 12WX.
