yeah something like does it have to be so the lcd screen and tablet active space mach like 15" is around 11x8 so you would need a 11x8 tablet? or more/less etc does every lcd have a built in power supply thats narly that it runs on low voltage im a first year apprenticeship in electrical i probably wouldnt have a problem if all lcd monitors had an internal powersupply i know nothing about them

It's probably better if the tablet is the same size or bigger than the screen.  If you have screen you can't use the pen you you'd have to keep dicing to a mouse to click a menu in the middle of doing something else,   annoying.

A 4:3 ratio 15" screen is 12"x9". so a 12X9 or a 12X12 wacom fits nicely.  (Pythagoras, 4:3:= 5 diagonal)
Widescreen - errm haven't worked it out, someone posted a list but I can't remember which thread it's on.
for a 17" screen you'd be better off looking for a tablet that's bigger.

Internal power supplies seem interfere with the tablet, so it's best to avoid them if you can.
If you monitor runs on 12v you could possibly run the tablet and monitor from the same supply.
