I wanted to follow up on my post and say that I made a decision! I ended up going with the Cintiq 12WX after researching the 15 in. one and finding out that it only has half the sensitivity levels of the usual tablets and that it was also meant mainly for business presentations.
What actually proved the most useful (besides studying specs) was looking up video reviews on YouTube so I could see the spatial scale of artist to tablet and how the workspace worked for them. The 12WX already has the same amount of pressure levels of the Intuos3 I had, so I knew the performance would be similar.
Unfortunately, not too many places around here have demos of equipment like this, so this was the closest I was going to get!
The most useful vid I found was this one:
As far as snagging one for a good price, I hunted them down on eBay till I was able to get one for $680! Took me six tries and use of a sniping tool (justsnipe.com), but it was well worth it I'd say!
Now I'm on the hunt for a bag since I want to keep the cintiq box in good condition. The best I've been able to find, though certainly not the cheapest OUCH, is the official bag from Cintiq which has room for the Cintiq, all its cables, and a slot for a laptop. Though I'm open to suggestions if anyone's found a specific brand that will do the same?
I hope this info helps out anyone else who might be hunting for a Cintiq! Happy hunting to you!
