Me - I'd prefer a diary

AdvantagesCheap - runs well on AAA batteries

DisadvantagesMono - small memory - basically a diary

"...believe to be the cheapest Palm computer - correct me if I'm wrong. I paid £119.99 but these are even cheaper now. Let's get straight to the point. This was designed to be cheap and succeeded. As a consequence it was taken in huge numbers and yet ... I'm not quite sure why in hindsight. When I first dabbled with hand held computers they came with keyboards and the quality of the keyboard was the selling point. Everybody remember Psion - still around ..." Read review

Hand Held PC Wizardry

AdvantagesIt is everything that you need to be organised in life if you cannot afford a Secretary

DisadvantagesChanging the battery is a trifle troublesome, you need to do it within one minute.

"...computers. Let me explain: The PALM M105 is a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant), which is targeted at the middle price market, it costs £149.99. When you open the box you get: A PDA, Stylus Battery, Cdrom, Instruction booklet Cradle with a serial connector for your PC. I purchased another Cradle for my home PC at £24.99. In addition I bought a protective Leather Case that allows me to attach it to my belt if I want to look like ..." Read review

Chuck out your diary, and get connected

AdvantagesCheap, fast, reliable, good software, big memory

DisadvantagesNone

"The recent introduction on the Palm m105 will have a lot of people wondering if now is the time to ditch the old diary and switch to a handheld. OK, £140 is a lot more than you would pay for a Filofax, but it is a real bargain, and a really useful bit of kit. For anyone who already uses MS Outlook for his or her diary, to do list and address book the answer is a definite “Yes”. SLIPS IN YOUR POCKET The Palm m105 is an new handheld ..." Read review

A Very Affordable Solution

AdvantagesPrice and Versatility

DisadvantagesOlder operating system

"...I was wrong. I purchased my Palm M105 with one purpose in mind and that was to use it as a portable file reader - specifically for Project Gutenberg etexts and error-checking program code. This was to avoid sitting bolt upright in front of a computer monitor, and not suffer all the discomfort and headaches that such inactivity often produces. The Package: After some online research to check that the M105 would fit my needs, and once the ..." Read review

Cheap but Incredibly Useful Personal Organizer

AdvantagesAll your information is in one place and you can easily carry it with you.

DisadvantagesIf you lose or damage it, all your information is lost.

"I bought my m105 from The Link and it was only £100 - I have seen it in other stores for the same price. You enter information either by tapping the end of the stylus (pen) on an on-screen keyboard, or by learning how to write characters in a slightly stylised way so the m105 can understand, which is easier than I thought it would be and turns out to be very quick! If you follow the Welcome instructions they should show you everything you need ..." Read review

Buy this pda!!!

AdvantagesCheap every thing you need really

Disadvantagesnot colour

"...cradle. The question is: Has Palm made a device that falls between two chairs by trying to make an entry-level device that boasts some major league features? Let's take a closer look. The hardware When I opened the stylish, new package from Palm I was surprised by the low number of items inside the box. All that was included was the device itself, the synchronization cradle and some plastic-wrapped manuals. Very tidy and also very unusual for ..." Read review

Palm M105 - An Excellent Little Toy

AdvantagesLooks Good, Cheap, Vast Array Of Software Avaliable online

DisadvantagesMonochrome Screen

"I picked up the Palm M105 about 3 weeks ago for around $40 and was from the start very impressed with this little unit for the price. For a start using the (frequently complained about) character recognition system "Graffiti" while a little daunting becomes easy surprisingly quickly. The Palm in itself comes with a small suite of software including a fairly comprehensive address book, calendar, date book, note pad (which is neat - allowing you to ..." Read review

Palm top control.

Advantagescompact, easy to master, loads of freeware available

Disadvantagesslightly clunky design

"My husband, the family technowizard, bought me this device as a set up present when i was starting on a writing project. I'd always had a sneaking yen for a palmtop and now i had one. Easy to learn and to use this device is actually better structured than some of the zire range (in my opinion) the interface is beautifully designed and the grafiti program which allows you to write directly into the device, rather than using the on screen keyboard, ..."

Palm m105

AdvantagesSmall, stylish, large memory, changeable covers

DisadvantagesSmall screen, not rechargeable

"...I have also owned a Palm 3, and this didn't do it. It is a really nice palm, and I like how you can change the covers. Now for the downside. The screen is tiny. It is perfectly clear and legible, but too small. Unlike many Palms, there is no reset button on the stylus, so a pin is required. And the problem with the battery. ..." Read review

The best of the budget world

AdvantagesCheap, user-friendly

DisadvantagesGreyscale display

"The Palm M105 is one of the cheapest Palms you can buy. And so when I bought one, I thought I’d be getting a cheap-and-cheerful thing that I’d use for a while and then discard. What I got in fact was a great lightweight and robust computer. Don’t be put off buy the greyscale screen, the Palm M105 boasts hundreds of free programs, including word-processing apps, database apps, spreadsheet apps, games, diary apps….hell, I can even control my TV with ..."
