Which PDA for grad student?
      06/20/04 06:36 PM


I've been reading reviews and trying to get acquainted with the endless PDA options, but would love some advice. I need a PDA that would serve as a notebook replacement for when I'm traveling and doing archival research. I'm in the social sciences, so all I really need to do is word processing--but that includes formatting, footnotes etc. etc. Seems like Palm is better than PPC for this, though I have read about Text Maker for PPCs. I need to be able to transfer Word files back and forth from the PDA to my Mac, definitely need internet capability for when I'm abroad, a decent amount of memory, and a screen that is not going to kill my eyes as I take notes and write and edit papers.

Any thoughts?

Many thanks!
