    I had a Dell PPC. Used it for a while, then moved and my current campus doesn't have WiFi so I sold it on eBay.

    Because its not 'just' going to be for music. I already have a small MP3 player anyway. I'm looking for something with a calendar that I can keep appointments in along with contacts and suct. Possibly keep track of my weight lifting as well.

    I have and use a Dell Axim, provided by my employer. If I had my choice, I'd get a PDA Phone instead. In fact, I may do so anyway. The PDA is great when you have a wireless connection available, but it sux when you're out and about.

    I have one of the HP PDAs and rarely use it for anything serious, like a work calendar. One thing that is great is the ability to download electronic books and read them on it. If you get one and are into science fiction, try http://www.baen.com/

    They have a free library that you can download. I like the MS Reader versions best.

    I have a Palm. I got it for free. Not sure if I would want to pay the money for one. They ain't cheap! I use it mainly for the calendar and address book, and now and then to play a game while I'm riding the bus. My daughter has a newer ipod and her conclusion is that the tiny screen is pretty useless for watching videos.

    For a few years, I used a palm. Great portable carry along device.
    The biggest drawback is that if you don't back up your memory to a computer hard drive, you'll accidently lose it all one way or another, sooner or later. Just stay on top of it...

    I love my Palm.

    Im the kind of person who cant or am not aloud to stop moving. So, I can get disorganized easily. Its also great for making notes, for my reports at work.

    My only problem now, is that I went from being resourceful and primitive to a "teck geek". Who has to carry a I pod, Palm, cell phone, camera.... Oops almost forgot the G19!

    Go for the Blackberry 7130. It's a phone, email, web browser, calendar and much more. And it is broadband. I love mine.

    I have a Palm Tungsten T3 that is nothing more than a glorified alarm clock. It is the only thing that's loud enough to get me up in the morning, and the fact that it has "Reveille" as a default alarm option is gravy.

    PDA & Blackberry. There's no way that I could keep up with all the meetings & calls I'm expected to make in a typical week at work without these gizmos.

    I especially value having emails delivered to me in real-time on the Blackberry. THe PDA is my backup GPS & Internet device, too.
