Now, I would really love such a solution too. One that lets me sync
even actual office documents. I see your problem and I sit with the

I am a Area Manager (say salesman) and travel a lot. Often a customer
calls me to request something and I just don't have the time to fire
up my Laptop. With the flick of a switch the information is there on
the Newton. (It is there with the TX too, but it is a lot less
intuitive and writing down larger amounts of text e.g. meeting notes,
is a pain in the ass with the Palm).

Only thing I can suggest if you work with such large files is to
Backup, backup and backup again, a backup on a Memorycard specially
dedicated for backup purposes might help here. I also take care that
the notes on my Newton never get too large, if it does, I will start
a new note and naming it accordingly (i.e. Meeting1, Meeting2,
Meeting 3, Marketing Ideas 1, Marketing Ideas 2 and so on...)

Though data loss is something that has never happened to me with the
Newton. Quite the contrary. You see my MP120 was lying in a drawer
for 4-5 years now. The batteries were long dead (all of them). But
when I inserted fresh ones, it just powered up as if nothing had
happened. This is what I love about Newton, the saying is true:
Newton never dies it just gets fresh batteries.
