I have a Bamboo, but I only use it if I need to do a lot of detailed Photoshop work (i.e. rarely). Many people swear it's the bees knees for everyday use (mouse replacement) and that may be so for them, but after trying that for several weeks I went back to using the mouse. I've been using mice pretty much since mice have been available, and I'm stuck in that rut. I found using the pad tiring and somehow "unnatural". Just me.

As for the screen mapping, there's nothing to concern yourself with. It's all done transparently by the driver. Presumably it reads your screen resolution from the OS and does the math: the whole pad maps to the whole screen, no matter what the dimensions are (I also have a wider-than-typical screen--a MacBook Pro, 1440 x 900).
