I have a Palm IIIc and I find it cumbersome to write more than a
telephone number on it.
It's rather good as a pocket diary, though, albeit a tad expensive :^)

I take meeting notes on my uMP2k, write stories on it, survey properties
with it (with the excellent PocketHouseMap!). Funnily enough, I get even
better HWR recognition from the cursive recogniser (called ParaGraph,
IIRC), mostly because I tend to write rather fast and have a tendency to
join my printed letters together.
All in all, my Newt recognizes pretty much 100% of what I write, after
nine months of use. Do keep in mind that the HWR engine of the Newton
has to learn your handwriting(*), and so for the first two weeks you
might be a little disappointed with the results. They will get a lot
better, trust me.
