Palm price vs. Clie price... lol

Palm. Unless money is no object, then Clie.

(I am biased to Sony though.)

Other than price, it's Clie all the way? I was told that Clie keyboards are horrible...

Well, I have had several friends own a palm, and a few of those same friends own a Clie... they say there is no comparison, and from what I've played around with (I don't own one) I would have to say the same. Clie's are just bad (as in good). However, there are more accessories for Palm.

Accessories shmessories, I don't have enough $$ to buy me tons of accessories.

I'm thinking about getting a TG-50 Clie, btw. Not too expensive, still great.

Spend a few extra $ and get an HP PPC. I've toyed with the Palm OS and it's very limited. As much as I hate MS, Pocked PC 2002 is by far the best OS for handhelds, though I have not tried the linux based OS used on some of the newer PPC's.

I used to feel the same way (about getting a Pocket PC), but...I've drastically changed my view. This is why:

-My hatred for Microsoft has truly grown after reading this article: http://www.windows-sucks.com/content/whatsbad.shtml

-Palm OS has gotten amazingly RAM-efficient, with much smaller loading times than equivalent Pocket PCs (obviously due to the minimalistic sizes of Palm OS applications)

-Palm is innovative. Microsoft is not.

-I am really, really into Macs now. And Pocket PCs just don't go well visually, mentally, or physically with Macs.

-Documents to Go synchronizes Word and Excel documents better than Microsoft's own Pocket Word and Pocket Excel. This is a fact, by the way...Pocket Word and Excel mess up formatting after the document is synced back up with the computer, while Documents to Go doesn't.

-The Palm interface is less cluttered and more task-oriented.
