I hate doing "me too" posts, but I agree whole-heartedly with Paul on
this. I just got a 2000, and after a few minutes with it, I ended up
tearing it apart, and transplanting its screen to my cracked-screen
2100, I couldn't take the lack of heap! The 2000 actually has a _lot_
less heap than the 130, and so loses all its potential
benefits--ethernet, web, speed, etc. I used 130s for a long time, and
kept it over a 2000 because I was aware of the heap issue on the 2000,
but I finally experienced it last week first hand. Either a 2100 or
130 is what I recommend, or, as Paul said, both!
