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 2nd 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
