Which Palm Model Should I Get?

This is the first time I'm buying a Palm and I don't know which one I should get.

I have narrowed it down to these models:

Zire 21:

Pros: The least expensive of the models. The battery pack suppose to last longer than the other models.
Cons: Monochrome colours. No expansion slot.

Zire 31:

Pros: Colours. Expansion slot.
Cons: Resolution isn't that good.

Tungsten E:

Pros: Better resolution. Music and video. Expansion slot.
Cons: Most expensive. I have been reading reports of units breaking down after the 90 day warranty!

I won't be needing the Palm to:

-Surf websites
-Send e-mail
-Phone people
-Play games

My Palm Requirements:

-Keep track of due dates, to do lists
-Looking up future dates and past dates for scheduling
-Take down notes
-A long battery life
-Keep track of contacts
-Easy on the eyes to read
-Keep a log of daily events


Can someone please give me advice and recommendation on choosing a model.

Hi,
Seems the least cost model should do what you need (Zire 21) based on your criteria.

I recommend the Tungsten E. While all the models you name will fill the bulk of your requirements, a hi res display is much easier to read. I used to read a lot on my old Palm Vx, but found that the new hi res displays greatly reduced eye fatigue. The characters are better formed and more precise. Compare them yourself in a store before making a final decision. I personally would never go back to a low res display. FWIW.
