Umm... for only inputting addresses, phone #'s, etc, there's really not much of a difference from a crap $40 Palm to a $600 iPaq.

I use the keyboard myself but I bet someone who practices a lot is more efficient with grafitti.

well, also word doc.s. I dont think a crappy $60 pda will be good for typing a term paper and hot syncing it to the comp. to print, will it?
Or could I USB it to the comp. just as easily?
