new to PDAs...help?

Looking on ebay and reading here to learn.

Want a basic PDA to keep appts for work and to d/l to Outlook on both work and home machines (work machine may not be possible due to admin locks but I can get around that in other ways...but I will need to d/l to home machine).

Looking at Palm M130 (in new condition, never used) and new, unopened Palm 21. My main concern is price. I don't want to pay over $50 and have found quite a few machines on ebay that will work.

Palm 21 is b/w with no back light (not too useful as I am often in places with not a lot of light...think ball fields/sports arenas with overhead lights). Palm 21 has also been reported as erasing data if kept near a cellphone. Read those reviews/complaints in two places online. But Palm 21 has faster processor than M130.

So do I go with the newer technology or ? I suppose I will be happy with either since what I am currently using (paper calendar) isn't working for me. Any help, thoughts appreciated. Thanks

I'd go with the color screen and backlight on the m130. It also doesn't have problems with cell phones in close proximity.
