A standard Mac input device for artists has been the Wacom tablet line. They're basically like a track pad on steroids, but usually used with a stylus. But it's quite difficult to learn to look one place (your Mac's monitor) while drawing or tracing in another place (on the actual desktop). Wacom solved this with a tablet essentially laminated onto a monitor. But they are quite expensive.
It might have occurred to you that you already have a monitor that can lie on the real desktop: your iPad.
Here's software that marries the two together, allowing you to use your iPad just like a Wacom monitor tablet. You can presumably use one of those foam-ended styli for iPads, your finger or even one of Adobe's new pressure-sensitive styli.
The app is called Air Stylus, and it's $20.
