Do what you can with a mouse, but in the end you'll need a tablet.

It's about pen pressure.
Even as a hobbist you should invest in a cheap tablet, at least at the beginning but it must have pressure sensitivity.

Investing in a tablet is one of the best hardware purchases you'll ever make in this field, not just for Zbrush but any other sculpting app as well as Photoshop & texturing apps (and many others). It'll be a revelation for you once you start using it.

If you can stretch to a Wacom you'll get a solid & reliable tablet that will last you for ages if you take care of it.

You can sometimes shave a little off the price by keeping an eye on Wacom's certified refurb outlet on Amazon:

Yup cheepskate is right… if you can't stretch your budget … get a refurbished or try a used one at ebay or any auction site near you

I would buy the second one, Art Pen, it has pressure sensitivity which is important for drawing and/or sculpting.
I might be mistaking but the 1st and the 3rd look more like office tablets, with a quick search I couldn't find them on Wacom page (maybe didn't look deep enough).
Again, get the second one, The Art Pen.

My opinion.

cheers

You won't regret it, it can take a bit of getting used to at first, but just stick with it and after a while you'll never want to go without it again. Some people try to completely replace the use of their mouse with it, others swap between mouse and tablet depending on what task/application they're in (I'm one of the latter, 3 button mouse for Maya is way better for me).

Make sure the cable doesn't get kinked or the connectors stressed and don't drop the stylus onto a hard surface from any height (the stylus is the most delicate part and is expensive to replace) and it should last you for ages. When the nib wears out and flattens due to use swap it out for a new one, it makes a big difference to the feel when using it.

This topic is discussed many times.
- Wacom is the best, true. But for your budget you can get small tablet with only 1024 lv of pressure + other spec is in amateur league. This is good for chikd, also photographers use such products, they do not need something better.

Size is important just like level of pressure, this is discussed also. I personally use old Genius 9"x12", even this tablet have many fails is better than this small Bambo, I check my self
Check this

This is probably mu next tablet.... do not have enough for Wacom Intious pro L
Do not forget, tablet is not things you buy every day, so chose wisely .
