Disadvantages: short battery power
My dad got the palm 105 for my mum, being the busy person she is, but mum is a serious technophobe. So she asked me to teach her. I had a single evening to figure out how to use it, and I instantly fell in love with it.
It really is great. Small, and sleek, and it fits very comfortably in the palm of your hand- no problem. It's great to use, and with a bit of practise, the "graffiti" system of writing is very easy.
There are hundreds of bits freeware available from the net, that you can put on to the palm, and you can syncronise the data with the serial connection provided. It's fast, and efficiant, and it does the job wonderfully.
Mum was the most organised person about town, for a little while, but then a problem arose. The batteries have very limited life (it takes AAA), and ours ran out within a month. Unfortuanalty, were using the ones that came with the palm, which weren't rechargable.
We replaced the batteries with rechargeable ones, and then resynched all our data back on, so our day was saved, but you have to remember that though this is great, you should always synch often (at least once a day for a medium user), and preferablyhave a set of spare rechargable batteries within reach. Then you too can become so well organised and efficient, life will become a doddle.
