I.m another that has tried other PDA's
I actually started with an OMP and liked it outside of sync.
I had a Psion 3c for about a year and it worked decent, only big
problem was screen size and only input was tiny keyboard,
I tried a Psion Siena (sent to me by Psion to try) and size was fine
but everything else pretty much sucked, tiny screen, tiny keyboard
with keys that insisted on repeating.
Palm when they were first released. Sync was about the only good thing.
I found a Newton 110 of next to nothing and wife still uses it
Newton 130, bought two of these for 50.00 at the time. Still have
2100 when they were first released, think I paid 1600 for it back
then with some software. This is the one that I still use to this
day. It died before warranty was up and apple sent me a brand new one.
HP Jornada. Sync to PC was great but nothing for mac. I liked the
colour screen but again it was to small and no keyboard. I did use if
for a while so I could take autocad file out into the field to check
onsite and basically worked pretty good to scroll around the drawing.
Again screen size became the big drawback.

So I am back to the 2100. Cal sync really does not matter to me too
much. I actually put off getting a portable for a year because the
Newton did all I needed at the time. I did in the end get a toshiba
portable that died big time just off warranty, evan though when it
was still covered they replaced virtually everything in it. So I
ditched it and bought a PowerBook G4 that I use all the time.
