PDA Buying help.

I'm trying to find a PDA or pocket pc that does the things I want it to do. This is going to be my first handheld and I don't really know a lot about them. I want an entertainment based PDA that has a great mp3 player, a great big display for games and movies, has the basic productivity features such as word and stuff like that, that has a powerful processor, and is a reliable product. Any suggestions. Thanks a lot.

I forgot about another feature. I need wifi and/or bluetooth, meaning some nice connection to the web for email.

HP rx3715 vs. HP rx3115 vs. Dell Axim x50v

Do you think the hp rx3715 and the rx3115 are better than the dell axim x50v? It comes down to those three. Which is the best one for entertainment and all those functions? Price isn't really a problem.

Got one. Seen many.

The rx3115, while nice still locks up from time to time. The firmware update failed until I figured out on my own to remove the SD card during the update.

I'm not impressed with PPCs yet. They feel as stable as Windows on a PC.

While I get great use from my IIIc (PalmOne) and rx3115, it's sad they don't consider (PPC) lockups to be a big deal. I expected better.

My PDA list is rather long. Palm? m100, IIIc, Vx, Zire 71, PPC? rx3115, Tosh e305 and what else is in that box?
